    Riders, we have been invited to participate in the Round Rock Express's Military Appreciation Day at the Dell Diamond. We'll be part of the pregame program, riding our motorcycles out onto the field and parking on the warning track for the pregame ceremony.

    The Express is generously offering two game tickets to each of our riders.

    Date/Time: Thursday, 24 May 2018. The game starts at 7 pm.

    Location: Dell Diamond, 3400 E Palm Valley Blvd, Round Rock, TX 78665. We will stage at the ball park.

    Notes: Fly your big flags! Bring drinking water; there will be no flag truck. We will ride into the stadium through the right field gate and space ourselves around the warning track. DO NOT RIDE ON THE GRASS. We will remain for the pregame ceremony including honored guest introductions, presentation of colors, fly-over, and national anthem. We will ride out of the stadium through the same gate. All riders will receive two complimentary tickets to the game. Those wishing to stay for the game can leave their bikes parked in the staging area.

    This is will be a fun opportunity to honor our service men and women, raise awareness of the PGR and what we do, and enjoy some baseball together.


    Well this was fun. We had 21 riders who got to ride onto the Dell Diamond warning track and be in place for the pregame festivities. The PA announcer gave us a big welcome, a wounded warrior threw out the first pitch, Reckless Kelly sang the Anthem, and we rode out after the honor guard retired the colors.

    A number of us took advantage of the free tickets and watched a few innings. The Express was ahead when I left, hope it stayed that way!

    All went smoothly. Thank you to everyone who came out for this event.
