WHERE SHOES/BOOTS YOU CAN GET DIRTY and wear off-trail in rough terrain.
A water bottle and anything else you want to carry is a good idea.

Grub: Some snacks will be provided mid-trail.

Family Friendly: No - this is an adult/alcohol themed event. 21+
NON-BEER-DRINKER?: Vodka-Lemonade/juice alt.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU PREFER THIS OVER BEER -- OTHERWISE YOU GET BEER. (It's a Cherry trail, you know there will be sweet drinks!)
PARKING: This may be updated, but currently it is at the start right at the entrance to Beverly GARDENS.
Try to carpool for safety and greenness. Also, if you crash, it will take more of you wankers out at one time.
If you're willing to DD, please post!

Need more info? Read on. Otherwise, RSVP YES NOW!

--------- More Detailed Info ---------------
-- this is primarily aimed at newbies

Stuck My Stick put in a good point a while back -- that you can figure out what all of this means by showing up :)
So I won't put in my normal links and BS and term-guide etc. Like he said, if you've done this before you won’t read it and if you’re new it won’t help that much.
This is a shiggy (of-the-path/in-the-woods) trail with thorns and such, so dress accordingly.
If you are new, just show up, bring your beer funds, and have fun. Better yet, whoever is bringing you should pay for you.
Don't look at me though. Not drinking? The trail/fun is worth it and any surplus $ (never happens) goes to the CRapids Kennel fund.
The simplest way to describe this is an outdoor beer scavenger hunt with some traditions. We are social drinkers with a running problem (mine, BallShaker’s, being that I don’t run).

If you read this far (unlikely), the word of the trail is "Scat." Work it into a sentence. Or some other way.

On On! Rain or Shine! :)
