    Default PGR Ride to Honor The 4 Fallen LEO's from Lakewood PD

    Below is some info that I received through the Headless Horsemen riding group (Ichabod Caine, the Waking Crew DJ from KMPS started up the Headless Horsemen). I won't be able to make this one as I have some volunteer duties at church that require me to be there, but I'm working on changing up my schedule to allow me to be at the ride. Here is the info:

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the Patriot Guard, Supporting Clubs and all proud Americans:

    We have been invited to help honor the 4 Lakewood Officers who died in the line of duty on Sunday, November 28, 2009. We will be attending the Memorial Service on Tuesday, December 8, 2009. We know that many of you cannot make Tuesday’s memorial but still want to show your respect for the Lakewood Police Department and, especially, the four fallen Lakewood Police Officers.

    This event will be different. This is going to be a memorial ride in their Honor.

    EVENT DATE:
    Sunday, December 6, 2009

    Once at Forza, we will just relax and talk. We will enjoy each other’s
    company.

    - We will be riding slow enough for you to ride with your large flags on
    your bikes.

    Respectfully,

    As a PGR, I will try my best to make the Sunday, 12/6, ride.

    Is there a organized ride for the PGR for Tuesday, Dec 8,? I did not see anything on the PGR website?

    Yes there is a ride and flag line for tuesday 8th, the finial plans are not set yet. This is what I have gotton so far.

    All,

    The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to provide a flag line at
    the Memorial for our 4 Lakewood PD officers:

    • Sergeant Mark Renninger

    • Officer Ronald Owen

    • Officer Tina Griswold

    • Officer Greg Richards

    The memorial will be held Tuesday, 8 Dec, at the Tacoma Dome. The
    memorial itself will begin at 1 pm. Actual staging information and
    times will be sent out shortly. we are currently awaiting some
    additional information to finalize our plans. My intention with this
    announcement it to get word our early so those that wish to can set
    aside the day.

    Myself (Bluelight), Jim "Bikervet" Dickson, and Kris "Daylight" Langley
    are the Ride Captains for this mission.

    Personally I would like to thank the Patriot Guard Riders for their
    support. I have received many messages from our membership nationwide
    and they have been forwarded to Lakewood PD. You may consider visiting
    the Lakewood Police Guild's website (lpig.us) where you can find
    information about these officers and the avenue to contribute to the
    families.

    Respectfully Serving You and the PGR,
    Cullen "Bluelight" Ritchie
    Washington State Captain

    It's listed under "memorial rides", not the usual "confirmed missions".
    Here's a link http://www.patriotguard.org/ALLForum...c/Default.aspx

    I heard on the news tonight that the procession will start at Ft Lewis or McChord at 10 am, so I anticipate staging at 9:30, but I have had no official news of that yet.

    Also, in case you didn't get the email, all PGR in WA have been asked by Bluelight to add a black band to your PGR armband to indicate our mourning and our support.

    NEW INFO JUST IN

    The staging will be at 8:45 near the Dome. There are rides coming in from all directions. If you have not gotten your official notification from BlueLight or BikerVet, Please give me an email @ debibloss@msn.com.

    If you are not yet a Patriot Guard Riders member, but would like to join and/or participate, I will be happy to talk to you about it and point you in the right direction. The website is patriotguard.org, and the state website (with Road Captain contact info) is PGRofWA.org.

    Here is the latest.

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the Patriot Guard:

    The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to provide an Honor Guard
    flag Line at the Final Approach to the Tacoma Dome for the Memorial
    Service for our Lakewood Police Officers:

    Sergeant Mark Renninger

    Officer Ronald Owen

    Officer Tina Griswold

    Officer Greg Richards

    The Memorial service will be held Tuesday, December 8 at the Tacoma
    Dome. The service itself is scheduled to begin at 1300 hrs (1:00 PM),
    but we will be staging, briefing, and establishing the flag line much
    earlier than that as the procession will be leaving McChord AFB at
    approximately 10:00 AM, with the first vehicles scheduled to arrive at
    the Dome at approximately 10:30 AM. For several reasons, this will be a
    lengthy mission plan, so please read it closely and completely in order
    to avoid missing important details.

    * MAIN MISSION *

    MISSION DATE:
    Tuesday, December 8, 2009

    STAGING LOCATION:
    314 E. 26th St.
    Tacoma, WA
    - The business sign on the street reads "Edge Technologies". There will
    be RC's present designated as "Parking Officers". Please follow their
    instructions for parking.
    - Secondary Parking - Parking Lot next to 409 E. 26th Street, next to
    "Katy's Antiques". This lot will be marked "Reserved for PGR". If you
    are directed to this lot, again, follow the instructions of the "Parking
    Officers" so we can take best advantage of available space.

    SCHEDULE:
    0845 hrs - Riders arrive
    0900 to 0930 hrs - Parking & sign-in
    0930 to 1000 hrs - Briefing
    1010 hrs - Establish flag line.

    RIDE CAPTAINS:
    Cullen "Bluelight" Ritchie, State Capt.
    Jim "BikerVet" Dickson, Ass't State Capt.
    Kristen "Daylight" Langley, WC Dist. Capt.

    MISSION LINK:
    http://www.patriotguard.org/ALLForum...8/Default.aspx

    This will be a long-duration flag line, and we will relieve individuals
    on a regular basis to avoid fatigue or other problems. After breaking
    down the flag line (time TBD), we will break for lunch (see below).
    Following lunch, we will move the flag line up to the vicinity of the
    "C" Entrance of the Dome (at approximately 1400 hrs) We will
    re-establish the flag line at approximately 1430 hrs (TBD) in order to
    be in place prior for completion of the service (est. 1500 hrs.).

    Because of the forecast for Tuesday, we strongly advise everyone to
    bring / wear warm clothing (in layers) and wear or bring cushion-soled
    shoes suitable for standing for long periods on cold concrete. Warm
    hats and gloves go without saying.

    There is a small cafe called Friesenburgers at 308 E. 26th, directly in
    front of primary staging, that is going to remain open for our benefit,
    so hot food and beverages will be available for purchase all day.
    Michael Goldman, the proprietor, supports our mission and is anxious to
    serve us. He is also giving up most of his normal customer parking for us.

    If you encounter a LEO road-block in the vicinity of the Dome (highly
    likely), simply tell them you are PGR and part of the Honor Flag Line on
    26th St.


    * SOUTH END RIDE PLAN - START *

    Below is the ride plan for anyone wanting to ride together from Oregon
    and SW Washington:

    SOUTH END SCHEDULE:
    0630 hrs - Staging
    0650 hrs - Briefing

    SOUTH END RIDE CAPTAIN:
    Dave "Dirt" Cox
    360-772-6352
    dlcdlc7@embarqmail.com

    SOUTH END NOTES:
    We will plan one quick stop south of Chehalis (exit 72) to top off and
    drain tanks and then we will make the final run to the Tacoma Dome for
    the 0930 staging. This may be a fairly hazardous mission. Please be
    aware of the weather forecast, high of 33 with a slight possibility of
    snow at this point. Please be very careful, especially on overpasses,
    metal expansion joints, and debris such as leaves and frost!!! And for
    those hard headed souls, please listen to the still, small, voice....
    mine will probably be yelling extra loud!!

    "THIS WILL BE A FLAG LINE ONLY SO PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR MODE OF
    TRANSPORTATION ACCORDINGLY!!!!"

    If there is anyone that is sure they are going to cage, please contact
    me (Dave "Dirt" Cox) as I will need to transport our flags north to help
    with the flag line.

    I may make an update as we get closer to Tuesday and have a better
    forecast for the weather. Please be safe!!!

    On behalf of Bluelight and myself, we would like to personally thank the
    Patriot Guard Riders for their support. We have received messages and
    calls from all over the nation, and we have forwarded them to the
    Lakewood Police Department. You may consider visiting the Lakewood
    Police Guild's website (www.lpig.us) where you will find information
    about these officers and an avenue for contributing to their families if
    you wish.

    Please watch for any further updates over the weekend because, due to
    the sheer immensity of this service, some things will remain fluid right
    up to the last day. We will strive to update any information that we
    get as timely as possible.

    Respectfully Serving You and the PGR,

    Cullen "Bluelight" Ritchie, Washington State Captain
    Jim "BikerVet" Dickson, Western WA Assistnt State Captain
