Ride, Captains, Ride
By Jean McDanal
John Brodman and Mike Hargett will again participate in the Cycle NC “Moun
tains to Coast” bike ride that begins on September 27 and ends October 4. The 2014
ride starts in Sparta, goes through Mount Airy, Reidsville, Oxford, Roanoke Rap
ids, Edenton, Manteo and finally finishes at Hatteras Village. That’s seven days to
bike 500 miles—unless, as happened before, they stray from the designated course
and add a few miles! They will
begin at an elevation of 1,771
feet, but will reach a maximum
elevation of 3,293 at some point
during the ride. Sylvia Brod
man and BufFa Hargett will
drive the support vehicle and
are also charged with locating
good food, great wine and the
occasional shopping opportu
nity. This last function is said to
make the bikers ride faster.
This is the third year John
and Mike have cycled to sup
port Hope for the Warriors®,
our parent charity for all of our
Kayak events. Last year, they
raised $3,000 on the ride and
are looking forward to surpass
ing that amount this year. Please
consider supporting them in
this endeavor. Donations are tax
deductible, and 100% of your
donation will go to support our
warriors; John and Mike cover
their own expenses. Make your
check payable to “Kayak for the
Warriors,” with a note that it’s
in support of the bike ride across North Carolina, and drop it off or mail it to town
hall at 100 Municipal Circle, Pine Knoll Shores, NC 28512.
You can follow them on the board that is displayed at town hall or by reading
their daily emails, whidi will be forwarded to the town’s email list.

PKS to Honor Vietnam Veterans
All gave some; some gave all.
In 2008 the town of Pine Knoll Shores honored veterans from World War II. In
2010 we all gathered to honor veterans from the Korean War. In 2014 it is time to
honor the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam War era,
commonly defined as the period from 1961 to 1975.
The event on Saturday, October 4, will begin at 3 p.m. with a rededication of the
Veterans Monument in Veterans Park, adjacent to the Pine Knoll Shores town hall.
This event is open to all Carteret County Vietnam-era veterans and all citizens of
Pine Knoll Shores. The rededication will last about an hour.
Later that day, at 5:30 p.m., we will have a dinner at the Country Club of the
Crystal Coast in Pine Knoll Shores for all past and present residents of Pine Knoll
Shores who are Vietnam-era veterans and their families.
