Calling the Georgia (and Alabama) sharks!!

Guys,

I am riding in a benefit ride next Saturday, April 13 and wanted to pass the information along to you all. If you're available, please try to make it out. Here is the description from the Facebook page regarding the ride, but if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to give me a shout. The ride is in Bowdon, GA (about 5 miles from the AL state line 10 miles south of I-20)

McIntyre Lumber Company and Smokin Pig will be sponsoring a motorcycle ride and bbq to benefit Gracie Stephens. Gracie is a 10 year old student at Bowdon Elementary. She has been diagnosed with brain cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Children's Healthcare at Scottish Rite. All proceeds from the Motorcycle Ride and BBQ will be donated to Gracie and her family to help with the expense of her treatments.

The ride will begin at Kids Zone in Bowdon and go North on Highway 100 to Tallapoosa. Then the route will continue up Highway 100 to Highway 78 and turn East traveling to Temple. Once in Temple the ride will go South on Highway 113 to the Bypass around to Highway 166 then West on Highway 166 to Bowdon to the Smokin Pig Restaurant for BBQ Chips & Drink $6.00.

Smokin Pig will donate a portion of the proceeds to the beneifit for anyone from the community that comes in and makes a purchase from the restaurant between the hours of 12:00 - 2:00 PM. The BBQ Sandwich, Chips & Drink for $6.00 is also available to the public or you may purchase off the menu.

Registration time for the ride 9:00 - 10:00 AM
Pre-register by April 6, 2013 and recieve one free t-shirt.
Entry Fee: $20.00 / Bike $10.00 / Rider

ALL BIKES WELCOME!!

We will have a drawing for door prizes along with a 50/50 drawing.

For more information or to pre-resgister please call McIntyre Lumber at 770-258-3394

JTB - kids zone is just off Hwy 166 near the Hwy 100 intersection. It's behind the police station across the street from Wendy's.
It's $30 if you're 2up and only $20 if you're solo (the wording is a little tricky with how they wrote it)
I'm not sure how many bikes will be there, but it's for a great cause. Sure would like to see you out there and meet one of the "Ruling Council" of this great site.
