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:

We will stage in the parking lot at the Stewart’s Shop with KSU at 2 PM and ride from Rome to the American Legion Post #1794, 9025 Veterans Memorial Highway, Lee Center, NY 13363, a distance of some 9 miles. Large bike flags are encouraged if you have them. Upon arrival at the Lee Legion we will form a flag line to honor Curly and stand for the singing of the National Anthem and a short ceremony. The organizers have requested that each motorcycle bring a birthday card for presentation to Curly.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
