Lee's 2nd Annual Mystery Ride

Lee Murphy

Key visits and presentations this year were at the Drake Power Plant, new Wyndham Hotel at the Mining Exchange Building, The McAllister House Museum, the US Olympic Training Center, Starr Kepmt’s  home and wind-powered sculptures, the home of Gary and Kim Feffer for refreshments, The Myron Stratton Home and the Pioneer’s Museum.  The four and three quarter hour event was enjoyed by approximately 50 riders. 

The  responsibility for the success of this event rests, to a large degree, on each participant as each of the riders is accountable to be at the applicable point of interest at precisely the time the speaker is slated  to give his/her presentation.  Cue sheets were provided at the start, which not only included the routine route information but the times the speakers were assigned to start and end their presentations.  Several members said that it was akin to military precision; I think it was closer to making it to class on time on a geographically spread-out high school or college campus. 

Anyway, a good time was had by all and many are already planning repeat visits to some of these locations to learn more about the history of our fascinating community.

A special thank you to Lee for this fabulous event!
