There is no fee, but Good Shot is discussing ways to make this an annual ride and possibly raise money for a cause. Any UTVs are welcome, tires or tracks, and there could be alternate routes depending on how snow-covered it gets. Everyone is invited. Good Shot Golf and Sporting Clays is at 124 Arrowhead Drive in Emmons.
