Molalla Corridor Trails fundraiser was a success

To the editor:

Thank you volunteers and participants who made the 19th annual Horses, Hikers and Mountain Bikers Poker Ride/Hike a fun and successful event.

Eighty-two participants enjoyed hiking or riding through the beautiful forests of the Molalla River Corridor Trail System. Proceeds of $824 will be used for trail improvements, materials, supplies, and to support trail work events for the Molalla River Corridor Trail System.

The winner of the $100 Grand Prize, provided by Valley View Riders, was Betty Beard. Many participants received prizes during the raffle. Participants enjoyed lunch catered by Fatheads BBQ and music by Al Rose, Dennis Stafford and Wade Rice. Funds from the 2012 event were used to purchase and install directional sign posts at trail intersections, install a culvert and re-route other trail sections.

Molalla RiverWatch, Inc. coordinates this event and trail work with assistance from Valley View Riders equestrian club, Oregon Equestrian Trails (OET), members of Northwest Trails Alliance bicycle club, local hikers and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
