    2009 USO Military Rides in San Diego

    I am looking for So Cal PWC owners who would want to help me out with hosting active duty Marines & Sailors this year with PWC Rides & BBQ on San Diego Bay.
    All you need is a 2 or 3 seat Runabout and a desire to say THANKS to these guys & gals who just got back from Iraq & Afghanistan.
    I have fuel money available for those who need it.
    The BBQ lunches are paid for by the San Diego USO.
    There will be live bands this year, give-aways for the troops and bouncies & games for the kids.
    My 2 confirmed Ride dates so far are June 13th & 27th.
    More Ride dates to follow as I am still in the process of communicating with units still over in "Sand Town".
    Any interested PWC owners email me at [email protected] and I will answer all of your questions.
    We hosted over 2,000 active duty last year and it looks like over 4,000 will attend this year.
    Thanks & God Bless America & Those Who Serve

    Our first ride is this saturday at the MCRD and we have 20+ PWC owners signed up, but would like to get more for some loaner skis that FBC is bringing. If you are a skilled rider and want to support your troops and ski isnt running or cant handle a 2nd person, you can still come and drive one of the loaner skis. The more drivers and more skis the better as we will have 200-400 people to give rides too.Please email me or Ray if you can [email protected]@sdfreedomriders. com

    The MCRD base general just cancelled the event due to security concerns
