Note from Alice Hubert

Greetings All,
Ray and I participated in the AHDRA II competition in Peoria IL this weekend.  AHDRA stands for Arabian Horse Distance Riders Association.  In addition to various endurance and competitive rides from 12.5 to 100 miles, there was a 12.5 mile drive each day.  There were seven drivers on Saturday and five on Sunday.  Saturday Ray and I missed a turn because a bicycle rider was standing in front of the sign, and once we realized we had missed it, we were fairly close to camp, it was very hot, and I decided it was too hot to go back.  So Ray and I got no score.  Sunday we did the whole course.  Ray took fourth, and Pete was disqualified because he overheated.  He is 17 years old, so he may be approaching the end of his competitive life.But we had a lot of fun in spite of the heat.  The “Camp Visitor” picture is of an owl which was near our campsite all weekend.  It was mostly white with browns spots, and very big eyes.  It made a screeching sound that almost sounded like a raspy slide whistle.Cheers,

Alice
