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!
