    The Patriot Guard Riders have again been invited to send off the Gold Star Families participating in this year's Snowball Express.


    Date: Thursday, 9 Dec 10

    Location: The south gate of the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport, located at the intersection of Reese Creek and Okalla Roads at the SW corner of Browns Cemetery tinyurl.com/3x4f7fv.

    Staging Time: 1415

    Briefing: 1420

    KSU: 1430-1445 PLEASE BE ON TIME! Once we are guided onto the tarmac, there will be no other riders allowed in the gate.

    WX: Sunny, with a high near 65.

    CANCELLED – It has been determined that the families, after their "Whirlwind Extravaganza" weekend, would much prefer to come back and get to their homes without a lot of fanfare.

    Date: Monday, 13 Dec 10

    Location: The Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport, 8101 South Clear Creek Road, Killeen, TX tinyurl.com/265gk8q The EXACT staging location within the airport grounds is in the process of being coordinated.

    Staging Time: TBA (morning flight)

    Briefing: TBA

    WX: TBA

    Notes for BOTH days:

    1. NO WEAPONS.

    2. We will establish a flagline/corridor on the tarmac for the families to walk through on their way to and from the aircraft.

    3. This is not a sullen occasion, so clapping, cheering, handshaking and hugging IS encouraged as the families pass us!

    4. Arrive hydrated and bring water for yourself & a buddy.

    5. Check the weather and dress appropriately for the conditions. Remember, it is colder on the tarmac than in the parking lot!

    Let's join together to give these deserving families a great send off and a warm welcome home upon their return!
