This message from George McMahan:

And I just want to remind everyone, it is coming up this Saturday August 22nd! A lot of people have worked hard to redo all the trails and tie the two ranches together. There some all new trail, and some old sections tied together differently so it will have a whole NEW feel to it. All AMSA members are invited and any and all of Will's old riding buddies. That will include A LOT of people so be sure and tell anyone you know that is buddies with Will. And this can be a membership recruiting event for AMSA; if you are wanting to join, come out this Saturday and pay your club fee to become a member, Memberships are $35 for a single and $50 for a family. The ride day or the BBQ plate would cost you more than that so come on out. I k now it will be hot but we've been riding, cutting trail, and marking and as long as yoiu're moving, not really that bad! And please send me an e-mail if you are coming, by this Wednesday night so I can be sure to have enough food. gmac11@suddenlink.net Thanks, George

The ride will begin at sun up which I think is between 7:00 and 7:30 AM?

DIRECTIONS

LAT: 29.984019 LONG: -97.134377

From Austin. Take HWY 71 East to Smithville. There are three (3) exits in Smithville. You want to that the third (3rd) exit and stay on the feeder road to 230 (also named Old Lake that curves south). Turn right on 230 (Old Lake) for one quarter (1/4) mile. Turn left onto Old Lake Road and drive three quarters (3/4) of a mile to #290 Old Lake Road where you will see a large, light brown, pipe gate on your right. It has a iron sign that says "McMahan Ranch". From the entrance you will drive to the second (2nd) gate where you will see the LARGE metal barn. Sign in will be under the car port on the left side of the barn. You must sign-in BEFORE you ride.

Hope to see everyone out to have some fun riding and to celebrate Will Hendricks birthday, AMSA's first President and club founder.

Thanks,
-The McMahan Family & AMSA

I do not think we will be riding Sunday. I will ask George McMahan and let you know.

You can camp Saturday night and leave "rested" Sunday!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Great dirt, great course, great people, and the weather gods even gave us some cloud cover to help keep the temps down all morning. Can't say enough about the property owners and trail crew.

Ridiculously fantastic set up. Shade under the trees, strong breeze and a fast trail with nice sand challenges. My tires didn't show any wear (unlike emma long or hidden falls) . The heat did get to me by 1 pm (4 laps until I hurt my thumb) so I had to head home.
I can't thank everyone envolved in setting this up. I hope they know from someone , that it was one of the best rides , if not the best, for many of us this year.
Happy birthday.
