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:

Due to the Thunderstorm threat, it may not be safe to ride Motorcycles. The weather may change and I hope to update by Saturday afternoon.

Preliminary Briefing around 10:30 am, weather permitting.
We will ride in as a group, as usual, and Honor Flight says our arrival is something they look forward to. Those that cage can drive in with us, but you do need to have a flag or other symbol to signify you are part of the procession.
Kick Stands up for the ride in at 11:40 am
They will have parking set aside for Bikes.  Cages should park in short term, and bring your pass in for validation.
The 11:55 am briefing will involve more last-minute changes as to where they will place us, as it will not be the usual place.  Please be on time. We will meet on the far east end of the Terminal where the rental car counters are located.

Please make sure you have a clean American Flag.

Again, Weather permitting. I’ll make a decision by Saturday Afternoon on the Weather.
Please watch for the update about the weather on our website, hopefully, an email will be sent.

I’ll be at Dunkin Donuts weather permitting at 3580 Mt Read and Maiden Lane in Greece at 10:30 am if anyone wants to ride in together.  KSU at 10:50 am.
