10th Annual Bob Marley Birthday!
Tenth Annual Bob Marley's Birthday Celebration, Sunday, 02/09/2014
Bob Marley 02/06/1945
Need an excuse for a Sunday Ride!
Here is one!
Sunday February 09,2014 @ Eleven Forty-Five AM. Meet and celebrate Bob Marley's Birthday @ Ft Hoskins Park, Hoskins OR.
This is the TENTH YEAR! It has been a lot of fun.
This is a no host event. Riders will bring their own food, plates, utensils, coffee cup and music to participate. On site: a picnic table, charcoal and grill to prepare your celebratory dinner. If you want to share food, bring something everyone will enjoy! Each rider should bring a piece of firewood!
Directions: Head west from Corvallis OR on Highway 20. Go through Philomath and stay on Hwy 20 a few miles. Turn off at Wren OR onto OR Hwy 223.
HWY 223 goes N towards Kings Valley and eventually Dallas OR.
Follow Hwy 223 approx 6 miles N. Turn left to Hoskins. There is a rural Fire Station opposite the turn. Ft Hoskins Park sign is about 1/4 mile just after the LH turn off Hwy 223. Proceed West and follow signs to Park.
The approximate GPS Coordinates are: Latitude: 44.675397, Longitude: -123.4542703)
Use first gear at Park entrance. It is paved, but steep with a sharp RH turn almost immediately. Once past that, you will be rewarded at the top of the hill.
This is a newly designated Benton County Park. Ft Hoskins was sited there from 1856 to 1866.
Hope to see you there!
Disclaimer: This is a fun event. Celebrating Bob's Birthday in no way condones drug use, illegal items or supports his way of life. We picked Bob because it was the only other significant event listed on the search engine! Ja Mon!
