CT: Camp RU CRAZY?! Change of Location

Bottom Line: Camp RU Crazy?! will be held June 11 at Cherokee WMA, Zeb, Oklahoma (NOT at Lake Oologah!!!!!). Directions are the same for the Camp Cherokee Challenge on July 16.

Well, I'm not surprised with all the rain. Link and I went to work on trails at Lake Oologah (Oklahoma -- Central Region) Friday and while we were working, the Lake level rose. The water rose to completely cover the wooden bridge, the earthen bridge and the inlet. The Lake was to the edge of trail in spots and covered the trail in other places. It's just a matter of time before we'd have to swim the trail.

I don't know if the level will go down but I'm not counting on it. Lake Oologah is a flood control lake meaning the Corps will take the water from other places to control flooding there and will flood the Lake in the process. The lakes in northeastern Oklahoma are all over their banks and planning around something like this is a nightmare. I've had to make last-minute location changes since 2008 and I'm not doing so this year.

We look forward to seeing you at Cherokee Wildlife Management Area! Remember, the proceeds from our 4 summer rides will go to the Shriner's Transportation Fund which is used to transport children to Shriner's Hospitals. Link, Dad and I are working hard to make a fun and easy trail. Come enjoy it with us!
