2009 Ride For Angels
Mood:  happy
Topic: Benefit ride

I hope you are planning to join us this year for the Ride for Angels. Our ride this year will be October 3rd. Make sure to mark your calendar, you don’t want to miss the entertainment that we have on tap. Our headliner this year will be the Buckner Brothers Band. If you don’t already know them you have missed out.  The band was originally formed in 1979 under the name Flinthill. All current members of the band are from the '79 lineup with the exception of Scott West who joined in 2005. They have taken some breaks over the years to work with other bands such as Whitewater & St. Elizabeth but, reformed in 1996 to continue doing what they do best. Billy Joe Royal, Jack Hall & Wet Willie, Tommy Talton (of Cowboy & Greg Allman Band) & Monty Powell are just a few of the great artist they have had the privilege of performing with over the years. You can hear some of their music and learn more about the band at http://www.myspace.com/bucknerbrothersband . We are very excited to have the guys come out, the show is going to start at 5:00 PM and finish around 8:00. 

 The party will be at a new event venue in Blue Ridge this year. High County Farm will be hosting us this year at their all new outdoor venue. The site is great and I can’t wait for you to see it. We are going to have more room to party and enjoy the day. We have events planned all day and I am sure you will find something for everyone to enjoy.  As always we have some of the best food ever so make sure to come hungry. You do not have to ride to come enjoy the party, music and food so tell all your friends to come on out. Everyone is welcome! 

The day will start off with registration at Appalachian Community Bank, next to CVS, and we will have some great treats and coffee to get the day started. Next, our poker ride will take us into the hills of Tennessee. Our 100 mile ride will hit some areas that we have never gone to before so don’t miss it.  The ride is going to be GREAT! 

When we return to Blue Ridge there will be lots of entertainment, vendors, food and more. Make sure to stay tuned for more details. And don’t forget that you can pre-register, once again the first 100 get a free event t shirt. Our shirts have become collector’s items and supplies may be limited. I look forward to see you on October 3rd. Don’t forget to wish me a happy birthday!
