Do you have a motorcycle?
The C&B committee is also looking to see if there is any interest amongst our membership to ride to Colorado Springs for the 2020 IAFF Memorial. Every year they start the ceremony off with The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle group riding in at the start. The Rolling Thunder is a group of IAFF riders that come from all over North America by motorcycle to be part of the ceremony. The ceremony is Saturday September 19th, and we would be looking at leaving sometime the week of September 14th. Anyone interested, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Ride to Colorado 2020” in the subject line.
If we have enough interest, we can discuss the logistics together as a group, and what we would need as support to make this a memorable, safe and successful ride.
