The Senior Trail Ride scheduled for Wednesday has been moved to Lions Lake and the Swine Pavilion at the Washington Fairgrounds, due to flood conditions on the river. Tram rides will be at 9, 10, 11, noon, 1 and 2:00. Bingo games will be under the main pavilion starting at 9:00. Lunch will be served from 10:30 to 1:30. Tram ride seats are still available. There is no charge for the event or food. You can make reservations by calling the Washington Parks Department at 636-390-1080.

Event co-chair Barb Hellmann said that logistics are in place to be able to shuttle seniors from the parking area directly to the pavillion. Valet parking also will be available. Those living within the city limits of Washington who need a ride can call the Parks Department, and a free ride will be provided by Modern Auto Company of Washington.

The 36-year-old right-hander will earn the league minimum 500-thousand-dollars after making 15.25-million each of the last three seasons. Lackey was acquired from Boston at the trade deadline and his contract had a clause allowing for a league-minimum option after missing the entire 2012 season due to elbow surgery.
