June 10 & 11 marked our 4th annual running of the Father's Day Club Run in Pike County. With a record number of RSVP's, we planned our weekend for 190 guests driving 89 Jeeps. To accommodate the largest crowd ever, Tim Miller coordinated 4 trails for Saturday's festivities. We ran Black Oak Run, Murphy's Law, Lake Shore Drive, & Suzy's Knob. Everyone met at the VFW in Pittsfield for the organized chaos of trail signup, lineup and departure.
a full day of trail rides and fun, dinner was served at TNT Farm. Sharon
and Virginia Williams coordinated the meal of chicken, beans, mac &
cheese, potato salad, rolls, and more sweets for dessert than you could
possibly sample. The meal was delicious and despite the intermittent thundershowers,
we enjoyed the evening of camaraderie. O.R. emcee'd a brief meeting and
the club collected over $300 for Operation Cool of Pike County, thanks
to the efforts of MaryAnn Callarman and Claudette Rego, with their "Crash
Test Dummies" (Sparky and Snapshot).
Sunday's trail rides were canceled due to the deluge of rain. Rooster made several trips to the banks of 6 Mile Creek River for viewing before the water was so high in one of our feeder creeks that he could no longer drive through it.
All in all it was the best weekend of wheelin' we've had down at our
place in quite a while. Thanks to everyone who made it possible - especially
the Brat Pack who came down early to assist in clearing the trails and
general preparation. Thanks Mikey, Spanky, Sparky, and Rooster for all
your help! We are looking forward to doing it again next year!
