    This just in from the Head Witch!

    A gift basket filled with goodies will be given to the winning witch rider during a drawing at breakfast! When you arrive at Gulf Place (be there by 7am) you will pay your donation of $15 or more, then you will be given a ticket/number for the drawing. This year, the Witches of South Walton will donate all proceeds to Children's volunteer Health Network.

    reminders for the Friday morning halloween witch ride:

    1. arrive at Gulf Place no later than 7 am in order to have time to register for the ride. Witches ride at 7:15 sharp.

    2. Bring your donation - cash.

    3. Plan to meet at Red Bar after the ride, for a witches breakfast. I believe most witches will be transporting their bikes via car from Gulf Place.

    4. wear your witchiest costume but be sure it is safe for a bike ride.

    5. check your tires and bike and be sure it is witch ready.

    6. be sure to scare all the children.

    :D

    we are accepting donations from local businesses for the gift basket, so if you have items or gift certificates to donate, please PM me to arrange.

    Thanks Ollie/Red Bar for your contribution.
    Thanks 30A tV for your contribution, if swgb does indeed ride in drag.:lol:

    Even though Carol is the head witch, FYI, Leslie Provow, who will be riding too, is actually a real Halloween witch. She will be 51 on this hallowed ride, so please wish her a happy scary witchday. Thanks!

    BB - we were talking about you at the Witches Red Bar Breakfast and how much you would love this witches ride!!! you would have been a pink witch, we do know that.

    thank you Lori (walton outdoors) for the prompt video. I waved at you from the bike but you didn't recognize my scary self! but seriously, thank you for posting the video so promptly for us all to see!

    Carol, Alpha Witch, asked me to thank all 40 or so witches for their participation in the bike ride to Butler, and the delicious breakfast at Red Bar. at breakfast, Witch Karen won a huge black feathered goody bag filled with frightful delights donated by several local businesses. also we had to introduce ourselves and proclaim to be a veteran witch rider or a virgin witch rider.

    The ride was a scream! SWGB rode in drag or I should say "hag". he was the best. almost wrecked when I saw him.

    we saw many wonderful costumes and decorated bicycles. my favorite bike was kelly's with the big fishing pole sticking up from the back with bats and other scary things hanging off and flying in the wind. punzy had a basket full of skulls and bones on her bike. scooterbug had a black vulture or something like that on hers. oh, and supermom was a really real witch all painted green with really long blonde hair. almost did NOT recognize her!

    The best thing about the ride today is that the Witches raised nearly $1000 for the Children's Volunteer Health Network. and they had a great time doing it. can't wait to see more pix. post 'em if you got 'em. :clap:

    Thank you to all the witches!!! I look forward to this day every year on my way into Butler. While in Butler this morning a lot of kids were saying "did you see all the teachers out there??" :rolling:

    It's amazing to see how it's grown so big and what you all & the local businesses are doing to help CVHN. We do live in a wonderful community!
