Ranch Rider Club News Ranch Riders Club wants to thank all who helped with the club’s work projects and activities over the holiday weekend. The RRC was happy to assist the Activities Committee with the Sunday poker run. The RRC flagged 15 miles of trails early Sunday morning. Activities prepared the food and worked with the RRC volunteers to sign ‘em up and check them back in! Feedback from our riders was extremely positive and everyone seemed to have a great time in spite of the heat and dust. We tried a few new procedures. A computer spreadsheet designed by Mel and Sandy Hollandsworth was used for the first time and worked flawlessly with the poker run operation. Because of the heat, we eliminated the route stops. Both of these helped speed up the lines at the end of the poker run. Over two hundred machines rode the route with no accidents. There was great food and many attendance prizes. The two deluxe mountain bicycles that were raffled off by the RRC were won by Rachel Marshal and Genny Wyman. Half the proceeds from this raffle went to the Disaster Relief Fund, which included the Joplin and other area tornados disasters. Thank you all who bought raffle tickets and attended this event. Over the last two weeks, many miles of trails were repaired with the skid steer that was donated to the RRC. Several people ran the machine, rolled the larger rock from the trails and cut back the slapper brush. The RRC put together two floats for the parade Saturday evening under the directions of team captain Debbie Bossaller. With her leadership the RRC was rewarded FIRST PLACE in the float division of the parade. Lots pictures were taken of the many happy participants of the poker run and parade. Look for the pictures at If you see your picture and want a copy just send us an e-mail request.
