Annual Christmas Ride & Dinner December 6, 2003

    We're hoping for great weather on Saturday, December 6th for our ride in the desert east of Ferron. Meet at Ferron Senior Citizen Center on 170 North 300 West and be ready to ride at 10:00 a.m. If you will not be able to join us for the ride, please meet here at the Center for the dinner at 4:00 p.m.
    On the menu is Roast Turkey and Baked Ham provided by the Club. They will also furnish the drinks and utensils. The rest is up to all of you. Please bring a pot luck dish (side dish, dessert, salad, etc.) to go along with the meat. You will need to RSVP by December 1st so final plans can be made. Call:

Looking Ahead to 2004
    "Swell Cure for Cabin Fever" Poker Ride will be held on March 27th, 2004. Pete Jones will be in charge so please lend him a hand by calling and volunteering to help with this very successful annual event. His number is 435-381-2449.
    "Arapeen ATV Jamboree" is also in the planning stages. It will be September 6th - 10th , 2004. The brochures have already been printed and will be distributed throughout the region very soon. As part of the event for this second year, there will be a "Ladies' Ride" included in the fun.
    More Club Rides are being considered for 2004. Besides the organized events above, more of you would like some monthly rides. This is a great way to travel different trails and have a lot of great recreational experiences. Call Mary Lue, Mark H or Glennys and tell them where you would like to ride. Also, if any of you know of some great rides that you would be willing to guide, please let them know.
    Club Membership Dues for 2004 are going to be due soon. They are 20 dollars per family. For your convenience, Mary Lue will be collecting them at the Christmas Dinner. Otherwise, just mail them in to her at:
