Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:

Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, 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 weather prediction of over 80 percent rain, the organizers have moved the Patriot Guard Riders to an inside position, out of the rain, to stand a flag line for the Send Off celebration. Members will stage at 1:30 pm and stand as guests arrive for the 2:00pm sendoff celebration.  Please come and join us with a clean US Flag and dress for the weather as it is forecast to be in the 50's with showers threatening.

The program will start at 2:30 pm and our mission will be complete.  You are invited to stay for the remainder of the program if you so choose. Thank you for joining me for this short sendoff mission to honor our Greatest Generation. 

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
