I posted an after mission report but I don't know where the hell it went. Anyway, 2 bikes and the flag truck attending this event. Even though the PGR was small in number, the family was very appreciative that we were there. Thanks to Don Ferguson for flag wrangling and Kelly "Skid" Rowe for helping out.
