The Colorado PGR has participated in this event a number of times over the past few years.


Jerry "TopSnow" Snowbarger will, once again, serve as Ride Captain and liaison with the Law Enforcement Officers who will help insure safe travels for all involved. The Stage Time will be 2:45PM and there may be two briefings, the PGR Briefing and a Safety Briefing with the Lead LEO.


If past years, the Colorado PGR participants have ridden as a group to Fort Morgan. The meeting location has been the Love's Travel Center in Hudson (Highway 52 and I-76). If you wish to ride with the group, please plan to arrive at Love's by 1:15PM for a 1:30PM departure to Fort Morgan.

Thanks to all who participated. My cousin Bob, a Korean War Veteran, is traveling on this Honor Flight. His son, my second cousin, is accompanying his as a Guardian. They, as well as the other Veterans on this Flight, appreciated the support and the special treatment.
