[FCC] Goldstream Sports Fatbike Pub Ride ends for the season

Welcome to April everyone! Sheesh. Please read the message below about the Goldstream Sports Fatbike Pub Ride.
Eric,
We’ve ended the FCC Pub ride and turned it over to the FCC, that is the Fairbanks *CANOE* Club. Seeing as the majority of the ride is on the slough and last week Rachel and I had to divert twice to miss open water, we’ll be on a 6 month hiatus.
Bill
