Buckaroo Ride is July 29-30, 2017

The Buckaroo Ride is open to all members and their guests.  The focus for the weekend will be kids and family friendly activities.  Bring your kids, your grandkids, your nieces/nephews or neighbor’s kids.  If we have confirmation of enough kids joining us, it would be nice to organize some kid friendly activities besides riding & river time.

Campers must be self-contained, this is a private residence.    If we have a confirmation of 20 or more people coming by Friday 6/23, I will reserve a Port-a-potty.  Plenty of room to set up hotwire corrals or highlines for horses.

There is usually a high fire danger so there will be no fires or briquettes allowed.

For more details contact Beth Ferris.  Please RSVP by Monday July 24th.

Buckaroo Ride location:  Private residence on the Middle Fork Teanaway Valley Road, just past the end of the pavement, look for the last house on the left.  Drive past the barn & camp near the trees.  Look for TD signs.

Regular TD ride rules will apply:  Leave No Trace is a must, Saturday night Potluck dinner, no dogs on rides.  Don’t forget your bathing suits & water sandals for river time.

Haney Meadows work party, Independence Day Weekend 2017

The work party at Haney Meadows is coming up. We will be cleaning camp and clearing trail. Doug Barber drove up to the campground on June 14 and reports that the road is clear and in good condition.

Please contact Cathy Nelson if you are planning to attend.

Where: Ken Wilcox Horse Camp at Haney Meadows
When: July 1-4, 2017
Potluck on Monday night

Bring your gloves, your favorite trail work tools and a hard hat. If you do not have a hard hat, please contact Tamara King. This is an official work party, not solely a club pleasure ride so we are following USFS safety rules, which includes everyone wearing hardhats.

There is no nice way to say this… so, please note:  the goal is to work as well as play and the expectation is that all TD members in attendance will pitch in for the camp and/or trail cleanup work.

Please see the USFS Job Hazard Analysis for Trail Maintenance
