Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:

Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: NYS Guidelines of 2 March 2022, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.

Special Information:

PGR Members will form a flag line at Wilson Lodge at approximately 10:30 am for family and guests arriving at the lodge.  Mr. Buczek's Celebration of life is expected to begin at 11:00 am and end at 2:00 pm.  PGR Members will participate at the beginning of the celebration by presenting a PGR-style plaque to Mr. Buczek's son, Dean. Once that is done, the PGR mission is complete.  Dean Buczek has extended an invitation to PGR Members to stay for some or all of the celebration of Daniel's life.  There is no escort with this mission.

Please bring your clean, 3'x5', U.S. or U.S. Army flag.  Please dress for the outdoor weather. The current forecast is for more clouds than sun; a stray shower or thunderstorm is possible, temperature in the mid-80s.

Thank you for your time to help honor and celebrate Mr. Buczek's life of service in the US Army, and Patriot Guard Riders.
