With the change in the seasons comes many reasons to get out and enjoy the beautiful Indiana Fall weather. Check WayNet.org's Community Calendar for these events and more coming up Labor Day Weekend:  

Critical Mass: bike ride
Come out for a community bike ride to meet other cyclists and show bikes as a visible presence on the roads. Meet at the Richmond Municipal Building at 50 North Fifth Street at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 31st.  The group will ride to Glen Miller Park for a "bring your own picnic" dinner and get to know anyone who is interested in bike issues in Richmond. Kids can play on the playground equipment while parents talk.  If biking doesn't work for you that evening, you're still welcome to join the discussion!

United Kennel Club Autumn Oaks Hunt
If you have never visited the Wayne County Fairgrounds while the Autumn Oaks Hunt is in town, you've missed out on quite a show.  Where else can you find over 1,000 coonhounds in one place?  During the event, the fairgrounds are open free to the public to enjoy watching the bench shows, shop for pet supplies, and delight in the many, many puppies.

Skydive "The Boogie"
Are you an adventuresome soul? Then this weekend might be a great time to take advantage of the tandem skydiving opportunities during "The Boogie" at the Richmond Airport, one of the largest gathering of skydivers in the nation.  If the thought of jumping out of a plane leaves you weak in the knees, you can still enjoy the colorful spectacle as an observer on the ground!

youth hunting weekend
Indiana DNR has named Sept. 1 & 2 "Youth Hunting Weekend".  Any resident age 15 years or younger on the date of the hunt, and accompanied by an adult of at least 18 years of age, can take any legal game in season during these youth free hunting weekends.

Young Hoosiers can hunt squirrel or migratory birds such as Canada goose, teal or mourning dove during the first weekend. Seasons open during the second weekend (Nov. 24-25) include deer, grouse, quail, rabbit, coyote, raccoon and pheasant.

The youth hunter does not have to possess a hunting license, HIP number or any stamp but must comply with all other hunting regulations. An accompanying adult must be in close enough proximity in order to monitor and communicate with the youth hunter at all times and may assist the youth hunter, including calling, but may not carry a firearm or bow and arrow. The accompanying adult must possess a valid hunting license, unless exempted from needing a license.
