The annual Champion Trail Ride, hosted by Bud Hutchison, of Ava, began at the historical Champion Store on Oct. 8, at 10 a.m., with a group of eight riders. Wilma Hutchison was there at the store to take their picture (shown).

The riders traveled approximately eight miles to the Shannon Ranch where they had their lunch before returning to Champion.
