Shoes or boots are highly recommended.  Proof of negative Coggins required and will be checked at registration check-in.  We will ride unless it’s lightning or storming.  Don’t let the weather discourage you.

We want to encourage everyone to decorate their campsite in a patriotic theme.  Flags, bunting or whatever you feel expresses your appreciation for our Veterans.

Plus, we will have our “Soup Kitchen” dinner on Friday night with left overs for Saturday lunch!  It amazes us at how successful this has been.   Soup and chilly weather are perfect.
