2008 Moonshine Run on Saturday night was a great

4-wheeled Runners on Saturday November 8th at Kentuck OHV Park.
all kidding aside, I am sure you have determined by now that
this is not a picture of CTR people, but everyone had tons of
fun anyway. The event took place at Kentuck OHV Park in the
Talladega National Forest Cheaha Mountain Range. The weather
was excellent and the fall foliage was spectacular. A campfire
was lit and everyone was ready for instructions and were
excited to hit the trails for the main event for that Saturday
night. The participants were given hints as to where they
could find the bottles of water and they had to make it back
to home base without getting caught by the Revenuers. The
Revenuers were packing (mega water guns) and were ready and
willing to soak the participants by jumping out from behind
the trees and giving these
"Illegal Moonshine Runners" a taste of what it is like to get
caught. Everyone had a blast and especially those who got
soaked! First, Second and Third Place Prizes were awarded to
the Runners who made
it back to Home Base without getting caught.
