    SoWal Witches will ride again...

    All you witches don your best hat, grab your bikes, and meet at Miss Lucille's on Friday morning the 30th. We shove off at 7:00 am SHARP!!! Entry fee is $15.** All proceeds go to support the Children's Volunteer Health Network (CVHN). We bike to Butler/ECMS, hang there awhile and regroup back at the Red Bar for some brunch.

    A few pointers.....make sure your bike has been tuned up for the ride. If you have ever lost a chain, a hat, or a shoe for that matter, you know very well, we stop for no one with bike or wardrobe malfunctions! Make sure your hat is secured to your head and avoid dresses, high heel boots, things that make it impossible to ride. Also, lots of witches go to great lengths to not only pull together amazing costumes, but to also decorate their bikes...so get creative....go crazy!

    Call Alpha Witch for more information 585-2932.

    Please feel free to spread the word...this ride grows every year...the witches have a lot of fun, the kids love it, and it's for a good cause!

    ** There will be a raffle at the Red Bar during brunch, so bring an extra $5 bill if you want to enter your name into the raffle. All proceeds of the raffle will also go to the CVHN. If you have any item (even something small) that you might want to donate to the raffle, please call Alpha Witch at the number above.

    What if you might not be available to donate that day. Do we just need to call number you posted on donation specifics, or is there a place or mailing address donations can be mailed?

    Gidget: If you are in the area, you should definitely participate in the Witches Ride on Friday morning. http://www.sowal.com/bb/events-activities/41727-south-walton-witches-ride.html

    My sister is also a "real" witch, born on Halloween! She is one year ahead of you in age, and she was, by far, the most witchy witch last year at the ride. Here is a picture of her from last year. Come out and join the witches and get a one-day jump on your birthday!

    For those who are unable to participate in the ride, but wish to support the South Walton Witches in their support of the CVHN:

    Please mail a check directly to the CVHN (see their website for address). We'd appreciate your acknowledgment of South Walton Witches with your check :wave:so we know how we're doing on our fund raising efforts. We plan to do better each year!

    WOW - fantastic witch costume!!
    Thanks so much for telling me about this. I plan on doing this next year when we are actually in our house and living out there. Is it always the Friday prior to Halloween? Trying to figure out how long the bike ride is. I know where Miss Lucille's is but I am not familiar with Butler/ECMS - however, I do know where Red Bar is ;-). I think this would be a blast and I am already thinking of a theme.....:D

    Thanks again for the info!

    G

    PS HAVE FUN MINNIE IN NO!

    Early to bed, early to rise, keeps a witch healthy and wise! Looking forward to a fun morning.
