ETRA Pledge Ride Sunday, June 23rd Coombs Fairgrounds
Registration begins at 9:30 and ride-out starts at
10:00 am. Riders will mount in the Fairgrounds and ride through a
path behind some buildings to access the light to cross the highway.
There will be volunteers on the ground to assist with crossing so
riders will not need to dismount. Riders will head towards the trails
via the RDN Parksville Rail Trail – distance is about 1.5 kms.
Riders are asked to keep the pace at a walk along the RDN trail –
as requested by the RDN. Also requested by the RDN is poop pick-up –
this will be managed by both ETRA and Silver Spur volunteers. Once
clear of the Rail Trail, you have an option of choosing various
trails depending on how long you want to ride for. You will be
provided with a detailed MAP with ride-out instructions and trail
information. The BBQ will commence at approximately 1:00 pm to
accommodate those who want the longer ride. 5 top awards for
collecting the most pledges by individuals and other prize giving
will begin at 2:00 pm. Which horse club will win the Trophy this year
for the most Pledges? Silver Spur currently holds this honour. The
contest is ON!
