Purpose: Getting together to get to know each other, and to bring awareness to the Public as to who the Patriot Guard is and what we do. This is a happy event where individuals of the Patriot Guard Family and friends will gather for fellowship to get to know each other better, riding together, and have some fun over good food and good music.

Again this is not an official Mission or Event sponsored by the Patriot Guard Riders of any State. If any type of injury is sustained during the ride, or negative occurrence takes place due to the over consumption of alcohol, it lies completely with the individual or individuals involved and not with the WV Patriot Guard or any Patriot Guard State attending.
