* All riders are invited to participate in a post-ride social at the APL Picnic Pavilion (on the other end of softball ball field from the parking area) after the ride. BAHC will set up grills and supply water/Gatorade and snacks. All Clubs and individuals are welcome to bring their own picnic supplies (use the grills) and drinks. Bring your own beer and some to share (especially if it is a good micro brew). Beer/ alcohol may only be consumed in the picnic pavilion area not in the parking lot.
* We will need volunteers are need help run check-in and prep/clean up the picnic area.
· BAHC is a §501(c)4 tax-exempt organization. We are requesting a minimum donation of $5 a rider to help fund our efforts as advocates for the cyclists of Howard County. This is our only 2012 fundraiser.
