“…Had myself a ball in a small town…” Maybe John Mellencamp’s classic song, “Small Town”, was about our town! Lots of fun people having a good time and you’re invited! Coming up on Saturday, September 21st is the first-ever Small Town Throwdown Group ATV ride! It’s sure to be a blast!
The Throw Down
Starter’s Sports Bar & Grill and McCoy Powersports have teamed up to organize this ATV event.
Jarrod Fletcher with Starter’s Sports Bar & Grill says, “We (Starter’s) want to help our city as much as we can. We love our small town. We want to give back to the community by bringing as many people as we can into town.”
Jarrod explains, that he and the Starter’s crew formed a bond with Mike and Jerry McCoy at McCoy Powersports and decided to get together to organize the event. Everyone involved loves to ride, so the groups decided what they wanted to offer, set a date, and started planning!
The ride will join in with the Annual King Coal Festival festivities on Saturday, September 21st in downtown Williamson. Riders will meet downtown and head out on the Hatfield-McCoy Trails at 10 am. The ride will make several stops on the way along the Buffalo Mountain and Devil Anse Trail Systems. Riders will return to Williamson by 4:30 pm, just in time to line up and ride in the King Coal Parade!
“After the parade, everyone is invited to come down to Starters. We will have cornhole set up outside and kind of have a block party that evening. We want everyone to just come join in the fun and have a good time, “says Jarrod.
The Extra Details
