September 2005 Newsletter

Hello Everyone,

Great news to tell you. Our yard sale was so good, we had a great turn out and everyone got a treasure to take home. The club earned more then $775.00. We donated the left overs to the thrift shop for the needy.

A BIG thank you to Chip and Lorraine Rainwater and Mt Valley Country Store for letting us set up there and donating so much stuff. It was so nice to be out of the sun and we even got Chip to cook on the BIG GREEN EGG! They were great ribs!! It was a very good day, and we had a great club turn out to help. THANKS TO YOU ALL!

I have given it a great deal of thought as to having this fun show. I can not see how we can put it together this late, we don't have a place to put it on yet. It was talked about having a clinic with some kind of horse trainer or something along those lines, so please bring some ideas to the next meeting.

Our next meeting is Sept. 7th at the bank at 7pm. Our speaker is Theresa Waldroup, with Communities In Schools of Clay County. Theresa helps kids prepare for life, because every child needs and deserves a healthy start and a healthy future. There is a program called R.I.D.E. where they send kids after school to learn about horses and their care. This is a program I think our club might be interested in , so please plan to attendOur next family ride will be the 10th of Sept.

We plan to ride Deep Creek out of Bryson City . We will meet at a rest stop in Andrews that a.m. around 9. We will make futher plans at the meeting. If you miss the meeting you can call me. Mike Crubaugh is our Trail Boss this ride.

Our last family ride was nice, we had 15 riders and we had hot dogs after the ride. Fires Creek trash was picked up and we all had a good ride.Our camp out at Standing Indian was a huge success. It was muddy but we got everyone parked. We had 27 riders. Janet Adams and I became the worriers of the camp out. We worried about everything, and you know what, it all worked out!

Thanks everyone for making it so much fun.

Happy Trails,
