So Long, Summer. . . Hello, Fall. . .

Hayride & Bonfire -- October 21st 

To celebrate the change of seasons and, well, just to get everyone together for some fun, we’re organizing a group Hayride and Bonfire again this year, at Brighton Recreation Riding Stable (6660 Chilson Road, Howell, MI - GPS: 42.503968, -83.859079) in the Brighton State Recreation Area on Saturday, October 21st

Cost will be $9.00 per person (“pay at the door” – mention Joe Knopp’s group to get this discounted price).  This includes our own private bon fire, the hay ride and pizza.  Our party will run from 7:30pm to whenever you feel you’ve had enough fun.  In previous years, they were willing to let us stay as long as we wanted to hang out around our bon fire, listen to music and socialize.

Plan to arrive at 7:30pm.  After you’ve paid inside the office building, look for our group’s bon fire between the parking lot and the barn.  We’ll begin socializing around our private bon fire.  At about 8:30, we’ll take a head-count to determine how many pizzas to order, and start organizing for the Hay Ride.  There’s room for thirty on each wagon, and the wagons leave every half-hour.  So, if there’s not enough room for all of us on one wagon, we can hang out by the fire for the next wagon.  Following the Hay Ride, we’ll return to our bon fire for more socializing. 

This year, you should plan to bring a snack to pass, your beverage of choice, a folding chair and maybe a blanket if it’s cold that night. 

Now, since we can’t predict the weather, if it looks like rain that evening, please call me at 810-923-1567.  If weather threatens, we’ll make a decision by 6:00pm and let you know if we will cancel or reschedule.

As a courtesy to the Riding Stable, please RSVP joeknopp@gmail.com if you plan to attend.
