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
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!
the scoop about the Richmond Municipal Airport
this info from WayNet's
youth hunting weekend
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.
