Playing in the cold

by Andy Spooner


The obstacle course can be a trip. Not for beginners, but you are welcome. The obstacle course can be a trip. Not for beginners, but you are welcome. About two weeks ago when the temperature was in the 30s and the wind was blowing 20 mph, local boy Toby Phillips had the bright idea of inviting some of his die-hard motorcycle friends to come to town and play.

For two days, some of the country's best riders from Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Iowa, Mississippi, and Michigan enjoyed practicing their competition and exhibition riding. Each day we only stopped long enough to eat the meals Mrs. Lynn prepared and long enough on Sunday to ride out to Flat Creek Baptist Church and let Cory Thomas put the fear of the Lord in us.

I mention all of this because we plan to do it again on February 24 and 25 of this month. I want everyone to know that they are welcome to come and enjoy "the show."

Furthermore, if other riders want to participate, they are welcome. We will be glad to set up an intermediate course to help the average rider improve their turning and avoidance abilities. I will say, however, these courses are not for beginners. So feel free to ride out to the Crossroads Community Center (Enterprise School house), ride a course, enjoy the fellowship, or at least show off your bike.
