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…
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!!
Ok, this is it. One more try and we are driving in.
Due to mild temps and rain in the immediate forecast many clubs surrounding us are closing. We don’t want to encourage riders to use closed trails to get to us so we are making the call to put off the party. The long term forecast looks decent so we are also going to close our trails with the hope that we can continue on after this weekend.
So Shack Party is postponed, again, but for the last time. So next Saturday March 2nd is the date and if we have to we will drive in instead of ride in.
If you need me I’ll be touring around with my sharpie marker to change all the signs I put up.
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/#
Apparently Santa Claus has already made an appearance at the new SKR SHACK. Although the donor probably wishes to remain anonymous I will say that they used only the finest in “Shouldice Designer Stone”.
