TETRA - Not Just Another Horse Club

Get Outdoors! Sports Show and Safety Fair

The Waco Lake Corps of Army Engineers sponsored their first Get Outdoors Sports Show and Safety Fair on March 23 and 24 and invited TETRA to participate. The weather was less than cooperative with a cool, cloudy, windy day on Saturday followed by a sunny Sunday marred only by 30 mph cold north winds. (We’d never seen a porta-potti blown across a parking lot before!) Despite this, almost 800 people showed up over the two days to learn about hunting and fishing safety, kayaking, model airplane flying, falconry, fly fishing, boating and RV’ing.

Sara McMillan and Jan Price represented TETRA and handed out maps of the Reynolds Creek trail system with information about safely sharing the multiuse trails with horseback riders. Sara brought Dobie on Saturday and Annie on Sunday. The children all got an opportunity to pet the horses and ask lots of questions while their parents learned about the trails.

Despite a lower turnout than had been hoped for, the Corps is planning to try this again next year a little later in the spring when the weather should be a little warmer. It is a great opportunity to get out some information about sharing multiuse trails safely with equestrians.
