The Watch Lake/North Green Lake Community Association (WLNGLCA) Gymkhana will be held on Aug. 8, starting at noon.

The event will be held at the grounds just west of the Little Horse Lodge. Everyone is welcome and the admission is $2.

These games are based on riding skills and horsemanship and are a lot of fun for both competitors and the spectators.

There will be a concession selling hamburgers, hotdogs as well as pop, water, coffee, chocolate bars and chips. There will also be a refreshment garden.
