Upon arrival we will fall under the direction of the Centex PGR ride captain. Any toll road charges are the responsibility of the rider.
Four bikes and two cages attended the mission for Seaman Steffek. Had an amalgam of LEO's, Plugerville, Georgetown and Bell County; did pretty well. Mass started 20 minutes late because someone told the organist the wrong time; flag line therefore was 20 minutes longer than usual, but all survived. Family was very appreciative of our standing for their loved one.
