GETTING OUT: Manly activities to do this weekend

Thursday, August 09, 2012

 

As the summer winds down, it’s probably time to get the guys together and do “manly things.”

Here are some options, along with ways to bring the kids, if you’re so inclined.

Trap Shooting

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.

Batting Cages

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.

Kayaking

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 trail riding is your thing, then head out to the Franklin Trails in Franklin for an easy ride, or to Hodges Village Dam in Oxford for 10 miles of trails that run along the French River. 

If you’d rather watch than ride, then head to Southwick to the 2012 Moto-X 338 Nationals

Worcester World Cup

Now in its seventh year, the Worcester World Cup tournament will be taking place this weekend at Foley Stadium. Twenty “national” teams – 16 men and 4 women, will be playing for the title of Worcester World Cup champion. 

The tournament starts at 5pm on Friday evening with the opening ceremonies, followed by 3 men’s games. Saturday features the other five men’s first round games and the two quarterfinal matches. Sunday’s events features the women’s first round and final matches, as well the four men’s semi-final games.

The weekend long festival also features food from Columbia, Vietnam, China, Nigeria, Ecuador, Mexico and Iran. The festival will include children’s activities and skill clinics.

Admission is $5 for the weekend.
