Kentucky Derby HIKE & POTLUCK!

Calling all horse racing fans! Please join us on Sat., May 4th at Beartown Lakes Reservation 18870 Quinn Rd. (Chagrin Falls)[masked] to hike, eat and watch the Kentucky Derby.


The event will start with an easy 1.5 mile hike through the woods of Beartown. The hike will start promptly at 5:00PM. After the hike, we will enjoy a potluck dinner. With your RSVP tell us what you will be bringing to avoid duplication.


We will be showing the actual Kentucky Derby race when it begins at 6:24PM. This will be shown in the pavilion. Now will be the time to cheer on your favorite horse!


Following along with the Kentucky Derby Theme, awards will be given for the best Kentucky Derby Hat. The contest will consist of the most original hat, largest hat, funniest hat, and the most colorful. Each person will have a chance to vote for their favorite hat in each catagory. Be creative with your hats. The bigger, the brighter, the better!

After the potluck, plan to stick around for dancing :-)

This is a joint meetup with the Northeast Ohio Hiking Club.
This event hosted by Laura,(Stow) and Sharon G. (The ladies who brought you the Trivia Hike last September!)

    Laura and I would like to thank everyone who attended as a great time was had by all and all of the food was awesome. Thanks to our committee...Aaron, Sean and Steve for the games, contest and tv!

    Wade-Good trick leaving a greasy baking dish. Yes I did wash and return it to you on the next hike.

    Bob-I didn't see a black and red cooler. It is possible that someone else picked in up instead.

    Wendy I didn't see an award but maybe Aaron could order you a new one.

    I do have misc. spoons , cups, that I will bring on the next hike to find its owners.

    BYW: the Stereo is working....I think we tuckered it out! Give us a suggestion for the next Themed event and I think that you could easily talk Laura and I organizing another happening.
