According to David Weatherby of the Cumby Volunteer Fire Department, a fundraising motorcycle ride will take off from downtown Cumby, Texas at 10:30 am on Saturday October 6, 2018. Registration starts at 8am, and over 100 riders are expected. Those participating in the BlackJack 100 Motorcycle Ride will experience some of the most scenic backroads in Hopkins County along the 60-mile route. A Bike Show and BBQ Lunch will follow the ride in Cumby City Park, located downtown. Spectators are welcome. Cost to take the ride is $25 per rider and $5 per passenger. This third-annual event is a fundraiser for the Cumby Volunteer Fire Department, with funds used for general operating expenses as a supplement to regular annual funding. This is a family-friendly, alcohol-free event. Former Chief Weatherby is a 22-year member and currently Chaplain of the department. He says the ride has grown over it’s history, mostly spreading by word of mouth, and he expects continued growth of the fundraiser. Members of the department will be cooking and serving the BBQ, there will be door prizes and vendors on site. The Cumby Volunteer Fire Department invites everyone to come and enjoy a great day outdoors in Hopkins County!
