Hey, Arkansas Spyder Lovers! On Saturday, September 24 there is an all-day event called the Foster Friends Festival being sponsored by a group I'm a part of called Bikers 4 Foster Kids to raise awareness of the needs of foster kids.

The day starts off at 9:30am with a parade routing through Searcy, Arkansas starting at the National Guard Armory (http://g.co/maps/eb77w) on Main Street and then ending up at the Searcy Event Center (http://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&rls=en&q=1209+Queensway+Searcy,+AR+72143&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x87d3a9af93246b79:0xe5889d72ede13ffb,1209+Q ueensway+St,+Searcy,+AR+72143&gl=us&ei=WVlWTt-BDMzgsQLR8qWXDA&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBYQ8gEwAA). We'll then have a flag raising and tribute to the 39th Brigade, who are being re-deployed. There's also a Car and Bike Show, Poker Run, kids activities, live bands, FREE FOOD and a tailgate party for the Arkansas-Alabama game. Go Hogs!

More information on the parade and bike activities can be found at www.fosterfriendsfestival.com (http://www.fosterfriendsfestival.com/Car___Biker_Activities.html).

You could either hang out with us for a while or make a run to Drasco or Heber Springs, both nice rides on a what we hope is a beautiful September day.

I won't get to take part in any rides other than the parade because I'm helping project manage the event. But we're hoping to have at least 150 bikes and I'd love a good showing of Spyders! :ohyea:
