GETTING OUT: Manly activities to do this weekend
Thursday, August 09, 2012
Here are some options, along with ways to bring the kids, if you’re so inclined.
The Auburn Sportsman's Club sponsors Trap Shooting Sunday mornings at 11 am and Tuesday evenings at 6 pm. Trap shooting is open to the public and all are welcome.
The club is also featuring a family day this Saturday from 12 noon until 8 pm. The event will feature a barbeque, music and games.

If you’re thinking you can do a better job at the plate than the Sox currently are doing, take the buds and head up to Lancaster Golf Center where you can swing to your heart’s content. http://www.lancastergolfcenter.com/Recreation1.html Cost is $5 for 4 tokens (14 pitches each) or $20 for 23 tokens. Softball and baseball are both available and you can pick your pitch speed.
If getting out on the water is something you like to do, grab a kayak and head over to Lake Dennison in Winchendon or Hopkinton State Park and paddle away. Lake Dennison also features 150 campsites, so you can even spend all weekend in the wild.
Don’t own a kayak? New England Backpacker rents them.
Dirt Bike Riding
If you’d rather watch than ride, then head to Southwick to the 2012 Moto-X 338 Nationals.
