We don't get to do many fun missions, so please join in this Thanks to our Troops event
Terrific Mission, about 25 riders. ~ half Sun City Guys and Gals and the rest seasoned PGR riders from Aus and Centex showed up to escort 2 busses full of Fort Hood Soldiers to SC. We made a great impression and raised awareness of our prime mission. Thanks to all that had a hand in this activity.
