    Eleventh Annual Bob Marley's Birthday Celebration, Sunday, 02/08/2015



    Bob Marley 02/06/1945



    Need an excuse for a Sunday Ride!


    Here is one!


    Sunday February 08,2015 @ Eleven Forty-Five AM. Meet and celebrate Bob Marley's Birthday @ Ft Hoskins Park, Hoskins OR.



    This is the ELEVENTH YEAR! It's 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.

    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 a way of life. We picked Bob because it was the only other significant event listed on the search engine! Ja Mon!

    If you never been to this park, this is a corner that can catch you out. Usually sanded and in the shade this time of year.

    The good thing is the rest of the clan will not see you crash there because it's at the bottom of the hill. :lol3:lol3

    Yup, dropped my GS on the first corner in the sand. Didn't shift down to first in time! Three cars came down the hill and went around me. No one even rolled down their window to laugh or swear at me for being the way.
    That's why I posted the warning!

    Made it down there the last few years, but words like "atmosheric river" have me thinking twice about this year.
