Once again the Okmulgee Cougar Prowl was a great success...only one pull in
the 50 and that was a rider! The rain stayed away. For the juniors,
Jesse, age 12 tied for second, close behind first and says he'll never ride
with (slow) me again! Amber, age 9, had laryngitis, much to the ear relief
of Karren Beason, I'm sure! As the one who puts it on, it wasn't my best
ride, as I was barely functional with what I was sure would be pneumonia
today, so I am sorry if I wasn't in the best of smiles!
We had a hot contention for the furthest distance travelled award: I had to
get on the computer to see if Leadville Co or Chicago Il was the furthest.
But Earl Baxter showed up from Ontario Canada!
I had wonderful volunteers...several came down from Kansas just to help,
and the McGraw kids helped the entire time!
We almost had a big disaster. Some local prankster turned the "to camp"
sign down a one way VERY muddy road! Luckily Bruce caught it before anyone
went that way!
No cougars spotted, but heard Susan Young got attacked by a shark!?! on trail!
The rest of this is long, so delete now if you don't won't to read ride results....
Louise Burton (still alive..barely)
