Next Ride Day - Sunday October 29, 2017 - 10/12/17 06:58 AM

Ride Day Sunday October 29, 2017.

McMahan Ranch.

TIME

The ride day will begin at 9:00 A.M. and will end at 4:00 P.M.

COST

Current AMSA members may ride for $20 each.
NON-AMSA members may ride for $30 each.
Non-Riders are free.

This is a remote location and a porto pot will be at the entrance gate.

DIRECTIONS

From Austin. Take HWY 71 East to Smithville. There are three (3) exits in Smithville. You want to drive to 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. Set Your Trip Meter to Zero. Drive 2.00 miles and you will come to a dead end or a T in the road. Turn RIGHT. AT 3.10 miles you will come to an unmarked road which is very close to 166 Joe Cole Lane. We will have pink ribbon and arrows here. You will turn RIGHT onto this dirt/gravel road. Drive through the 1st gate. Veer RIGHT to sign-up.

Park on the right after sign up if you need room to turn around or with a trailer. Pick-ups can park on the right or left of this road going into the property.

Thanks to Paul Fucik for the Flyer shown below.

Thanks,
-AMSA

Future ride days are planned at Rusty's, Watson Ranch, Goertz Ranch and a new 500 acre section of land at McMahan Ranch.

Not necessarily in that order.

AMSA will be sponsoring a race at McMahan Ranch in January 2018 that will not conflict with other local events. Stay tuned for that so you can mark your calendars!

This from our one and only Rafael Boban - due to the more then overwhelming response to start time for the A rider "500" property sneak preview we will be doing it at 8:75 am or 12:30...listen for double airhorn blast 15 minutes prior...chug your beer or drink water if thats your thing and we will have a sign ready for hwere to meet...at prescribed time there will be a single airhorn to start the she-bang so we can make sure to have gates closed behind as these are WORKING ranches.It takes some time for the leasies to move their herds around for us to enjoy what we do which is why there will be no riding at the Main Ranch during this ride day extravagnza
