                                                        for the Pinnacle Bank’s 1st Annual Relay
                                                        for Life Poker Run. Registration began at
                                                        10AM at Pinnacle Bank’s main branch in
                                                        Elberton. We got there at about 10:15 and
                                                by Yank the back parking lot was already nearly full.
                                                        While on our way we had met about 10
                                                        bikes or so on the main drag through town,
                                                        that were heading out to draw their second
                                                        card.
                                                          Most of the riders left from Elberton and
                                                        went the The Flats Bar in Canon to draw
                                                        their next card. From The Flats, the next
                                                        location to draw a card was in Athens.
                                                        Cycle World of Athens on Atlanta Hwy,

                                                        stops to draw cards. The final stop was
                                                        in Colbert, at the Tucker Plantation. This
                                                        was also where all of the remainder of the
                                                        day’s activities would be held. There was a
                                                        variety of biker games that were a big hit.
                                                        The slow race winner took home $100 and
                                                        also had the worst hand in the poker run
                                                        which scored him $200 more in cash. First
                                                        place in the poker run was four-of-a-kind,
                                                        kings.
                                                          About 7:30 the first of 4 bands took to

RallIES & RIDES
            IN GEORGIA!
There are some motorcycle magazines that won’t list an event if that promoter doesn’t advertise with them. Shame on
them. Not only do we list every event we know about in our national wrap, we thought it might be a good idea to highlight a few
of the rallies and events in GEORGIA during the month of September. Why? Because it’s the right thing to do for our readers
and we know you appreciate it. For more Georgia events, see page 8 in the National. Enjoy this last full month of wonderful motorcycle riding weather and Ride Safe!

A DECADE OF CARING FOR GEORGIA
For the past 10 years, you’ve helped up bring smiles to the children of the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes. It’s a tradition that we’d like to continue....with
your help. Won’t you join us on SATURDAY • NOVEMBER 3RD • SWAINSBORO GEORGIA • 10th ANNUAL TOYS FOR THE BOYS HERRINGTON
HOMESTEAD RIDE Ask anyone who has ridden in this ride and they’ll tell you that meeting these boys and girls and the joy they get from seeing
their excitement is worth more than the $25.00 donation they contribute. That’s why you come back year after year, and it’s why we’ve been able to
contribute close to $100,000 over the years to the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes. If there’s a group leaving from your area of the state we encourage
you to join in the ride. If there isn’t a group leaving from your area, we invite you to join us at The Coleman House Inn Hwy
1 in Swainsboro at 11:30 am.                       (Trailer parking available) The ride to the Herrington Homestead is approximately 20 miles. For more
information, or to start a ride from your area, call Sylvia at 478-237-3761

                                                              get cooler and the beauty of fall is
                                              just around the corner. Before we have to spend
                                              the weekend raking leaves, or jumping into the
                                              holiday hustle and bustle, let’s take a relaxing

                                              our legs, picnic and/or just relax. Not far down

                                              picnic breakfast or lunch and Let’s Ride!!

                                              Leaving Savannah Harley-Davidson, turn Left
                                              out of the parking lot and left onto Hwy 204.
                                              Travel under I-95 and approximately 1 mile to
                                              US Hwy 17/Ogeechee Road exit. At the bottom
               Ramblin’ Round Richmond Hill   of the exit ramp, turn Right. No, you’re not
                                              seeing things, that is a giant cow in a straw hat
                                              and earrings just across the street. She marks
                                              the entrance of Keller’s Flea Market, so if it’s
                                              the weekend and you love shopping or checking
                                              out “treasures”, you may want to give this place
                                              a try.

                                              Continuing on down US Hwy 17, you will pass
                                              through two stop lights and continue on to the
                                              Ogeechee River. Just before the bridge on the
                                              left is Kings Landing park and boat ramp. This
                                              is a great place for a cool dip if the weather is
                                              steaming. Remember, you are on a river that
                                              connects with the ocean. The water is brackish
                                              (fresh and salt mix) and alligators do love the
                                              meals that swim about the area, however, the
                                              landing is usually pretty busy and the gators
by Jill Ward                                  tend to avoid people – just be aware of your
                                              surroundings.

                                              Over the river and through the woods, you’ll
                                              come to Hwy 144/Ford Avenue in Richmond
                                              Hill, Georgia. We will be turning Left onto
                                              Ford Avenue. In case you are wondering, yes,
                                              it is Ford - as in Henry Ford. In the mid 1920’s
                                              Mr. Ford purchased a huge portion of the land
                                              that is now Richmond Hill. He made this his
                                              southern home and laid the groundwork that
                                              has developed the area into the up and coming
                                              family community that it is today. Although the
                                              actual plantation and home of Mr. Ford is now
                                              a private, gated community, the home and many
                                              of the original buildings remain. Standing in the
                                              home’s parlor in front of the massive, elegant
                                              fire place one can only imagine the guests and
                                              conversations that graced the antebellum home.

                                              Traveling from Hwy 17 down Hwy 144, ride
                                              about 1 mile. Just before the railroad tracks, take
                                              Cedar Street to the left, just before Impressions
                                              Dry Cleaners. You will immediately notice an
                                              iron sign across the roadway noting the entrance
                                              to J.F. Gregory Park. The park consists of 335
                                              acres of a pre-civil war rice plantation, which
                                              fed local Confederate soldiers during the War
                                              Between the States. In December 1864, Union
                                              soldiers marched along this southern bank of
                                              the Ogeechee River to attack and capture Fort
                                              McAllister. The rice fields were commandeered
                                              to feed the Union armies as well. The Park is
                                              named after Henry Ford’s plantation foreman,
                                              J. F Gregory who reclaimed the deteriorating
                                              property and cultivated the land to prosperity
                                              once again.
