We have a change in our schedule. THE FAIRVIEW/HELPER RUN WILL NOT BE HELD ON APRIL 22.
The weather over the Skyline Pass has been determined to not be LBC friendly, at this time.
Instead, we will be substituting a run to Antelope Island on that date, 22 April. We have not been to the Island for a couple of years, so this will be a good time to make the run.
The SL and points South meeting place is now Warm Springs Park parking Lot on 300 West and approximately 800 North in Salt Lake City, behind a large brick building. This used to be the Children’s Museum.
Gather, on April 22, at the Warm Springs Park lot at 9:30am for a 10:00am departure for Antelope Island. We will take 100% surface streets with speeds not exceeding 55 mph and most in the 35-45 mph range. This is a great drive if you, like me, are a fan of lower speeds and closer to home events.
Northerners, meet at the lot just west of Burger King in Layton (2010 N Main) This is in the Northwest corner of the Antelope, Main St intersection. We will all meet there at approximately 11am. From there it is a quick jaunt to Antelope Island. Remember, Antelope Island is a Utah State park and there is an admission fee; $10/car or $5/car for seniors.
Bring your lunch for our picnic at the Garr Ranch. There are no concessions at the ranch, so bring what you’d like to drink, also.
The views of the Wasatch Front are spectacular from Antelope Island. Be sure to bring your camera for pictures of the bison that are often close to or on the road!
