Up and coming things to do

A great excuse for bikers to get out and ride, as if anyone needs a reason to ride a motocycle, Rick’s Ride is coming up Aug. 9. Those of us who walk can still stop in and get a nice barbeque meal for $10. For a good cause.

 Dog show.

Bring out your mutts. This was a lot of fun last year. People really seemed to like showing off their dogs and it was, I have to say, cute. Dogs of all shapes and sizes made for a good chance to get in some chin scratching and plenty of petting. Good dogs and responsible owners – nice to see.

 Art in the Park

Right next to the dogs will be artists – lots of them, from all over the area. The Art Show will run roughly the same time and gives people another reason to come out. By the sounds the weather shoud be good as well.

 High school sports…

It’s hard to belive but the time of summer camps for fall sports is creeping up on us. The annual Horde football camp isn’t far off. Coach Torres tells me the guys have been working hard looking towards the brand new season.

With the retirement of field hockey’s Lynn Enny it will be a different look for the Golden Horde hockey team, at least on the sideline with Steve Palmer stepping up to take the helm. Exciting stuff, but I’ve got to stop looking so far ahead – there’s lot of summer left.

 

More later…
