The 2018 Spring Ride

Our 34th Spring Ride is now over and was very successful. We had a great turnout of folks from all over the state. The weather was beautiful for Thursday and Friday, but did not hold up on Saturday morning—which poured rain—and then cleared again. 

When the riders got back to camp on Friday night the silent auction was all set up for everyone to take their time looking at all the wonderful items to bid on.

The Friday night “Dutch Oven” pot luck was a great meal—the “cooks” Willie Kemper and Joe Hebert had the cooking time estimated perfectly with at least 15 Dutch ovens so that all were done at the same time! Then Brock Hires of Tonasket, Randy Edin of Everson and Richard Harrelman of Yakima entertained us with singing, guitar playing, and cowboy poems around the campfire. 

Saturday morning was raining for the Ride, but most folks rode anyway. Unfortunately, they didn’t get to see the white-capped Cascades as they were “socked in” by clouds. When we returned to camp, after playing our “Hands of Chance” poker, the silent auction bidding was going strong. After the auction closed, we were honored with a wonderful BBQ steak dinner! Again, on Saturday night we had a great night of campfire music and cowboy poetry. Jim Higginson of Bellingham had flown over and Dave Notter of Wenatchee added a fiddle to the entertainment.
Sunday morning brought us a wonderful Cowboy Breakfast! The cooks and servers did a great job of taking care of everyone and we all enjoyed a fabulous meal before leaving camp and heading home.
A special thank you to everyone who worked hard to keep things running smoothly and made our 2018 Spring Ride a huge success!
