The Annual Steeplechase Banquet
A Fitting End to a Year-Long Adventure!     

[EDITOR'S NOTE: We initially incorrectly reported the date of the banquet as January 14, 2013. The date has been corrected below. We apologize for any inconvenience that this error may have contributed to.]

Now that 2012 has come to end, the Tacoma chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association (CMA) is celebrating another successful steeplechase at their annual awards banquet, to be held January 12. The banquet will feature dinner and a reflection on the past year’s steeple stops. The 2012 drawing winners will also be announced and prizes will be awarded, so if you participated in the steeplechase, you won’t want to miss the event.

The annual steeplechase is a unique way to experience some of the most scenic riding Washington has to offer. Steve Allen, president of the Destiny Riders, Tacoma Chapter of Christian Motorcyclists Association, explained, "These churches are selected to provide riders the opportunity to travel on some of the most scenic roads in Washington and into areas where they may not normally ride."

Proceeds from the 2012 event will be donated to The Ministries of The Destiny Riders. Open to all riders for only $15, the point of the adventure is to stop at any number of 20 possible steeples located throughout the state. Take a picture of you with your bike in front of the steep and mail it in to the Tacoma CMA to earn a contest entry. Each stop is worth an entry, and stopping at all 20 steeples earns an extra five entries! You don’t need to be at the banquet in order to win, but it would definitely make it more fun!

If you didn’t participate in the 2012 steeplechase, keep an eye out for information on the 2013 program. You can also email steeplechasingk@yahoo.com for details on the awards banquet or 2013 stops.
