Fun Day Recap
A beautiful day at The Ponds Rec Site with fun games, food and drink and 3 different takes on pumpkin launchers. The adults stayed close to the campfire because the sun didn’t reach high enough to penetrate the trees most of the day.
The kids had a great time tracking down treats on the treat trail and rolling pumpkins.
Thanks to the organizers for making the day happen and Jeremy and Angeline for taking a group for a ride around the Becker area. Great work by Allen, Claus and Michael for the three unique launcher designs and thank you Martina for the amazing photos.
The Pumpkin Launchers
Starts @ 9:30am Saturday October 28, 2023
Please register by email by 9:00pm Thursday October 26 for a fun-filled day at The Ponds Recreation Site at Noble Canyon. There will be fun for kids of all ages including pumpkin carving, a number of different games, a candy trail and pumpkin catapult.
The campfire will be going all day and food and drink provided by the club. If you have a young family this will be a fun day for the kiddos.
Bring your ATV or drive up in your car/truck/suv as there will be activities at The Ponds and rides going out throughout the day.
Becker Lake Road is a Forest Service Road (FSR) so expect potholes, washboard and snow as you get to the upper elevations near The Ponds. AWD or 4WD with good tires would be recommended but a 2WD car/truck with good winter tires should be okay if you know how to drive offroad in the winter.
- ATV rides to nearby viewpoints and longer rides
- Axe throwing (Nerf version)
- Kids Treat Trail
- Pumpkin carving
- Pumpkin launching from a couple different catapult/slingshot designs
- Walk the trail and boardwalk around/over the pond
The forecast is for daily high temperatures in the low single digits in the valley so it will be right around freezing at The Ponds but it’s supposed to be clear and sunny. Dress warm because nothing ruins the fun like being cold.
The Ponds Recreation Site is 10.5km up Becker Lake FSR. We will lead a convoy of vehicles up from the cattleguard on Noble Canyon Road (400m from Highway 6) at 9:30am. Everyone who registers will receive detailed instructions on how to find The Ponds should they want to come up later in the day.
Please register by email by 9:00pm Thursday October 26 so we have enough pumpkins and food for everyone.
