We had a great turn out to our Shack Party again this year!
We were pleased to present one of the founding members of the club with an award of appreciation. It was really interesting to hear Barry Howey talk about the first days of the club. (see photos at bottom from his shack)
We’d like to thank all of the sponsors especially Subway in Wiarton for supplying us with an abundance of food! Also Cory Gunn at Tim Hortons in Owen Sound (near OSDSS on the west side) for the coffee and hot chocolate and all the fixings.
And for all the awesome raffle prizes a big Thank You to…
The Spa Guy
National Powersports and Financing
Hal Wright Chevrolet Cadillac GMC Buick
Hallman Motors LTD
Owen Sound Ledgerock Factory Outlet
Wiarton Home Hardware Building Centre
The Gaslight Diner
and whoever brought the amazing preserves…it was chaos and I missed that!
AND finally to all the volunteers for their time and effort. I’d specifically like to thank the new members in the club for really stepping up!
The 50/50 winner. Mike Goetz was our big winner taking home $155.
The photos below are of the Stoney Keppel Riders Shack that was on Barry Howey’s property…I’m not sure if he is in them but I do see some familiar, younger, faces. The second photo said it was from Shack Party 2009…10 years ago!!
Due to the recent rain our trails are closed and we’ve moved the date of the Shack Party to February 23rd. (UPDATE-we are moving it one final time to March 2nd.) Please spread the word on the date change and as always refer to the interactive map for current trail status: https://trails.evouala.com/ofsc/#
UPDATE 3.0-we are moving it one final time to March 2nd.
UPDATE-we are going with our backup date of February 23rd.
Our next meeting is Thursday January 17th at 7pm at the Clubhouse. If you haven’t been there before and would like to join us let me know and one of us will meet you at the road and guide you back.
If you look after a section of trail we need a few things:
All landowner agreements
Update of trail staking and signage
Inventory of any signs you have or need
If you can’t make the meeting please send this to Mark or Christy asap.
We also need to discuss Shack Party 2019, firewood and shack maintenance.
Hope to see you there!!
Apologies that these notices don’t always make the website…let me know if you want your email added to our mailing list which does get every notice.
Just a reminder that our next meeting will be tomorrow, Wednesday October 24th at 7 pm and will include our signage training. All executive and anyone looking after a section of trail should be there for the training.
Paula and I attended the OFSC AGM this fall and were totally shocked to have Stoney Keppel awarded District 9 Club of the Year!
We are going to try this again, and hope for no +18 rain days like last year.
Join us for some food and fun at the Stoney Keppel Riders Shack! The event date is set for February 10th, 2018, More details to follow.
