WINTER IS COMING
Posted on Sep 29th, 2014
BEFORE YOU LEAVE BEAUTIFUL BALD ROCK FOR THE WINTER......
 
For the do it yourselfers:
1. Turn off your water outside at the box
2. Drain your water lines
3. Flush and put antifreeze into the toilets
 
Or hire someone to do it for you.
 
Why? Even if you have a generator and you have set your temperature control to a safe temperature there is no guarantee that your water lines won't freeze. Generators have been known to fail
 
Be sure that Blue Ridge Public Safety has a key to your house and a list of people to whom they may give it.
 
BALD ROCK SUMMER/FALL 2014
Posted on Aug 7th, 2014

FUN WAS HAD BY ALL

From Mule rides (some would like to call them Polaris rides but you do not need a Mule or Polaris to participate) to lunches and musical evenings at the Barn, to the Pavilion parties, to trail rides and hikes in neighboring Panthertown Valley  - the Season in Bald Rock is never boring.  

Every other year Bald Rock hosts a Horse Show to benefit Friends of Panthertown, and the 2014 event was highly successful, raising a record amount to help maintain Panthertown as a World Class natural area, right in our own yard. What an event! Horse owners practice for weeks, which in itself is worth watching, to show off their mounts and equestrian skills at the event. Others solicit donations for the silent auction or bake cookies or staff the tables or chauffeur visitors from their cars to the Barn. Work? Yes, indeed it is but how rewarding to see hundreds of people flock to our beautiful community and coming together to help a worthwhile cause.  THANK YOU for making it possible this year and in the years to come.

What a thrill it is to walk or drive in the early morning and having to stop so Mama Turkey can shepherd her flock across the road, or to see a doe with her fawn peering out from the woods. If you are lucky you might even see a bobcat or a bear. Summer was great! 
 
Fall is here and the leaves are start turn - enjoy!

Mule Rides:
Meet at barn at 6:30 for everyone to follow each other to destination. Mule seats can be shared by people who don’t have a mule. Folks should RSVP so host knows who to wait for. Food at destination.
********************************************************************************
Host decides where to go-either to their own home or host will lead everyone to somewhere in the development in our mules.
If you have it at your home-figure everyone is to bring an appetizer or dessert to share and their own bottle so you shouldn’t have to provide anything other than your own contribution-unless of course you want to.
