It's a RIDE! It's a SHOOTING COMPETITION!
It's the FIRST ANNUAL IRON-HORSE BIATHALON!!
Right now details are being finalized, but we do know this:
It will be on Sunday, July 13th, 2003 and will probably start around 10-10:30AM. From the TBD staging area (in Central Massachusetts), there will be a motorcycle ride to a gun club where participants will shoot 10 rounds at a target. When everyone competing has shot, we'll saddle back up and head out to continue the ride to another gun club where participants will shoot again! Then we will head over to a local pub for a chicken bar-b-que (includes corn & potato salad) and some musical entertainment. (Since this is a smoking establishment, local zoning requires everyone to be 21+) And at this pub, there is naturally a cash bar for whatever beverage you'd like with your meal. (Alcohol is available at the final destination, but only water and soft-drinks are allowed at the gun clubs. Drink responsibly!)
There will be raffles and prizes. Including prizes for the top three shooters! (If there are ties for the top spots, we'll put the names in a hat and draw winners.) Prizes will be announced later. (Donations towards the event in the form of money or raffle prizes are greatly appreciated!) You may also order an official ride T-shirt in your size when you pre-register, however the T-shirt pricing has not been finalized at this time.
If you don't want to shoot, you don't have too. All types of bikes welcome to ride... All types of handguns are welcome to compete. Pre-purchase tickets will be $15 (which pays for the food, entertainment and helps defray the cost of prizes). All proceeds will benefit the GOAL Foundation and The Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association.
