2008 Moonshine Run
The 2008 Moonshine Run on Saturday night was a great success also!
(This is not associated with the Make-A-Wish Event but is always held
on the night before the Make-A-Wish Event )

4-wheeled Runners on Saturday November 8th at Kentuck OHV Park
.

With 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.
