Pirates! Pirates! Well, they came to Sleepy Hollow and found ther’ treasure chest! There were eight hidden chests to find with your map, mates followed the clues to the horse height chests. The Cash Back Prizes were awarded at the 6pm potluck. In first place were Pat, Lindsey and Gary. Second were Pat, Jenny, Anna and Sam. Third were Lori, Jennifer and Chanda! The Sleepy Hollow Equestrian pavilion was decked out in pirate fashion and costumes were fun. Mates shared the group campfire and comradeship. Wench Linda hosted this unique event that was a blast.
