    Does anyone know if we are being asked to participate in the Parade at 2:30 pm?


    As a member of the Bastrop American Legion Riders Post #533, and also a Patriot Guard Rider, are you planning on getting together with the Bastrop ALR once you get here? I plan to meet up with the PGR at Bucees, but I'm not sure how many ALR will make it from here. Would really like to get together with y'all. Thanks and Ride Safe, Copperhead
