COWBOY LUNCH RIDE – Friday June 28, 2019 -- Each year, the ride takes you along a scenic route to a different ranch location to enjoy their cowboy chuckwagon cuisine and get an up-close look at ranch life!  Lunch consists of custom-made all-beef beer brats,  home-cooked beans, salad, drinks and cookies.  After lunch there will be a presentation on the operations of the ranch with an emphasis on watershed management.  Sign up for the Cowboy Lunch Ride when you register for the rally.  Space is limited, so sign up early!  Cowboy Lunch Ride cost is $15 (non-refundable) to benefit the Grant County Stockgrowers Association.  We will ride (or drive)  to the ranch starting from the Main Gate at 10am, Friday.  Be sure to start with a full gas tank.


TEAM OREGON CORNERING SKILLS CLASS --This class will be offered once on Friday and once on Saturday.  The class starts with an hour-long classroom session at 8:30am in Keerins Hall for a discussion of cornering, riding strategy, and technique. Afterward, the group will embark on a 1.5 hour ride to put ART (Advanced Rider Training) techniques to work on real asphalt. There will be opportunities during the ride for group discussion and professional feedback.  This same class was offered at the rally last year and got rave reviews!  These classes are limited to 12 riders each day, so sign up early.  These classes fill up fast!   Team Oregon Cornering Skills class cost is $40 and non-refundable.  This clinic is focused on street riding. Bring your questions and your hang-ups – the discussion is wide open. Dual-sports, three-wheelers, scooters and passengers are welcome. Let’s ride!
