Rich, "Honor Man" Blackaby will serve as RC and will bring Flags.
This is our first mission back at Pikes Peak National Cemetery since things were shut down as a result of the Covid-19 virus. All members much maintain a 6' spacing and have a face covering around their neck ready to put on in the event the 6' spacing is encroached. The Flag Line will not be set in our normal location in the committal shelter, but at a safe location to be determined by the Ride Captain and PPNC Personnel.
Weather is Hot, please stay hydrated.
