Spring Opener 2016
Hi Everyone Spring
Opener 2016 will once
again be at the Silver
Ridge Ranch in Easton
WA. right off exit 70 on
As in the past Jimmy George and his committee are making each year better
than the last and I believe you will truly enjoy what is planned for this
We don't have all the details worked out right now so keep checking as
info will change.
There will be the usual events like bike games, bike show, scavenger hunt,
tattoo contest, vendors and much more in other words something for
Even though we want everyone to attend and have a righteous time,
as it is at any event there are things you can do and things you can't.
We will start
with the camp fires,
have a camp fire in a
designated fire pit or
in an acceptable fire
pit you bring with you.
If you bring you own fire pit it must have legs so it sits off the ground.
If you do not bring your own firewood you can purchase it from the ranch
there will be no other
You CANNOT make a fire on the ground, the ranch has permits for
fire pits and can lose
their permit if
someone has a fire on
the ground and if they
lose their permit there
will be no fires at all.
If you have your own fire pit do not dump the ashes on the ground, make
sure they are cold and
out and put them in the
The next item is probably the most controversial, you CAN have a
service animal at the
event but you CANNOT
have a pet.
I know that there are some people that consider their pets as part of the
family and would not
dream of leaving them
but this is one time you will have to, if you bring a pet that is not a
service animal you will
be asked to leave.
If you have a legitimate SERVICE ANIMAL there are certain rules you
have to follow,
they must be on a leash at all times, you must pick up after your service
that means carrying a bag with you to pick up poop (no one wants to step
your service animal cannot be noisy, unruly, or a danger to anyone.
If you do not follow these rules you will be asked to leave.
BAD ATTITUDES are not wanted if you have one and cannot leave it at
home then stay home with
If you drink and want to get in someone's face or fight don't drink or
FIREARMS OR PYROTECHNICS
of any kind.
There are a
number of reasons for
this, first and foremost
is the safety of others,
also the ranch has horses and if you scare their horses they could kick us
also it is against the law, once again if you can't follow the rules you
will be asked to leave.
I know what some of you are saying "Man we are bikers what's with all the
well here is the way it is, it doesn't matter if you a biker, motorcycle
or just everyday citizen attending the event.
Everyone who pays their money to attend deserves the same respect that you
would expect someone to
I also know that the NO'S and the CANNOT people are a very
small number and the
majority of the people
just want to party, listen to music, and enjoy the company of good friends
new and old.
So just come and have fun, enjoy the bike show, bike games, music and all
the other festivities.
Thank you for coming we hope to
see you all next year,
Have a safe &
fun ride home!
