Our 2019 Summer Fun Hunter Pace turned out to be a great day to ride as the rain stayed south of us and gave us cool temperatures and no bugs!!! We had a long course of approximately 10 miles and a short course of 7 miles. I want to thank the landowners John Birdsall, Alesandro Valmarana, Wick and Carter Mcneely, Mrs. Sally Garland, Grey McLean, Brian and Colleen Bassett for letting us enjoy their beautiful territory and scenery
Big thanks go out to Matthew and Charlie Cook, who put up the tent, cleared, mowed and provided the paths for everyone to ride on. Shout out to Carter Hilliard for providing the emergency Porta-Potty (whew!), cleared fields and log jumps at Mint Meadows for everyone to enjoy! My volunteers, BJ Korol and Betsy Dove (my secretaries), Linda Haschart photographer and helper), Kip Holloway and Carolyn Chapman (my trusty timers), Karen Bull (my drink gal), Mac Dent (my bridge man), Mason Fogg (traffic controller), Brian Barquin ( my water man with company)and Pam Conn-who just wanted to come out and enjoy the day with us! I could not have done this for the 7th time (Good Grief!!) without my GURU Liz King, who figures out the trail in her head, and then takes me around to mark the trail. It is always amazing to me how she does that. She also provided those fun jumps on the long trail at Millington. I appreciate everyone who dropped off cookies, salad, dips, chips and all those brownies and lemon bars-Yummy!!!
