2020 OETRA CalendarThese dates are subject to change due to weather and/or conflicts with other rides across the state. Please contact Janis Baldwin (email@example.com) to add others rides and activities. More details will be added in. This is the master calendar and a link is on our Facebook page.
Rides marked with *asterisks are considered our ‘Big Rides’ and usually require a small fee to participate. Fees cover the costs of food, drinks, prizes, etc. If the state or federal websites are hard to navigate, be sure to go to Trail Systems and look up the park. There are probably some helpful instructions!
February 8 – Oklahoma Equestrian Trail Riders Association Cherokee WMA Tahlequah workday. Contact LeeAnn Dreadfulwater, firstname.lastname@example.org
February 12-18 – Oklahoma Equestrian Trail Riders Association Cedar Lake Work Week. The park will still be closed. However, they are allowing OETRA members to come in early to work. Arrive on Tuesday afternoon. Work will begin Wednesday. I would not advise arriving early. Free camping will be the duration of these specific dates. They will have us camp in a certain area that projects have been completed. We will work on the ground on Trail 4 crossing (again) adding more concrete bags and also on the steep Trail 1 outside of camp. Pruning and marking trails will be a priority as well.
