Bicycle Photo Scavenger Hunt & Picnic

The public is invited to the Shiawassee Arts Center's first Bicycle Photo Scavenger Hunt & Picnic on Sunday, September 29. It's bound to be a super fun, challenging and yet also family-friendly event! Bring your bike, camera, your family and friends and test your knowledge of Owosso. We will give you a map and clues when you register between 1:00 and 1:30pm. You may race or meander at your own pace within a 4-mile radius searching for items. Family distance will be within a 1.5 mile radius. Expect to ride 1-2 hours depending on the length of your "hunt", your street smarts, speed and determination. 

Return to the Arts Center for some good ol' celebrating from 2-4pm for a picnic lunch with root beer floats, some sweet raffle prizes, yummy silent auction items including a Nirve Coca-Cola Bicycle from the House of Wheels (which will also be displaying some of their antique bikes), a 50/50 drawing and even some fun games. Prizes will be awarded and all participants will receive a free gift. Festivities will go on rain or shine. Join us for the Bike Hunt and Picnic at $25/person --- children 6-12 $12.50 and 5 and under free and must be accompanied by an adult OR join us for the Picnic only 2-4pm at $15/person --- children 6-12 $7.50 and 5 and under free.

2013 SARA Swap - August 24, 2013

An ARRL Affiliated Event

SARA SWAP is on Saturday, August 24 2013 AT A NEW LOCATION! Time for vendor setup is 6:30 AM for inside SETUP, SALES are 8:00 AM to noon for all. This is an ARRL affiliated event.

SWAP will be at the Auto Diesel Institute at 1400 South M-52, Owosso, MI 48867. There are limited inside tables. This is across the street from the previous location at the 'Welcome Center'.

Pricing for the 2013 event is $3 person for admission, an outside parking spot for selling is $3 and a 6' or 8' table, inside is $5 (limited availablity). SARA runs a small concession with coffee, water, sweet rolls inside the building. You can see that this meets the 'low cost' we are trying to achieve at this SWAP, so come and enjoy.

HINT: Outside they seem to 'jump the gun' and start selling when they are set up - just saying.

HINT 2: Bring a couple of friends for a good social time and enjoy the Owosso area during the afternoon.

Please join us and perhaps you will find your perfect anchor for your shack!
