This is a reminder for the WMOTA club membership meeting Thursday, July 13th at 6:00 pm.  Come early (5:00) to eat and socialize with your fellow riders.
The July WMOTA ride will leave camp at 9am on Saturday, July 22, and is about 51 miles long. Bring snacks, not lunch, as there will be a BBQ meal shortly after our return to camp that afternoon. More details below. Also bring water and raingear (a must).
The ride is pretty evenly balanced between gravel roads and rocky trails through heavy pine forest, some burned area, and open grassland. We will visit Juan Garcia marsh for a stop, then continue along the Reservation, across to Green’s Peak Road, crossing over below Carnero Lake, then looping up and around Whiting Knoll before returning to camp. Thanks to Fred Parry for developing this ride for Apache County ATV last year. Your ride leader is Maurice Colwell, tail gunner is Ken Drozdowicz.
Camp and staging are located 9 plus miles North on the 117 from the 260 or 9 plus miles South on the 117 from the 60, turn onto the 65(most maps show this road as the 64). Continue a short distance (1/4 mile) westerly on the 65.
We have a special treat, Tim and Eileen Dunn will be cooking for us.  We will have both beef and chicken professionally BBQed by the Dunn’s. We will be adding potato salad, baked beans and chips for a hardy and delicious midafternoon lunch.  You can bring an adult beverage to enjoy if you wish or we will provide lemonade and water.
The Rodeo is cancelled this year because our chairperson Dawn Brady has had a death in her family and will not be able to plan and carry out the events.  HOWEVER, we can still play some games as we have in the past, with PRIZES!!!
Plan to spend the afternoon with us after the ride for lunch and activities.
