HOTH-OSC Wounded Warrior BBQ, Gaithersburg, 9 Oct

Operation Second Chance (OSC) is having a BBQ at smoky Glen Farm in Gaithersburg Md. A group of about 50 bicycle riders (Ride Allegheny) will be riding in from a 4 day fund raising ride from Pittsburgh Pa. The proceeds from this ride help fund OSC’s activities during the year and we have been asked to put up a flag line as they enter the farm. Their ride will end at Smokey Glen Farm in Gaithersburg Maryland. A BBQ dinner will be served for everyone once all riders have arrived. OSC does a lot for the wounded warriors at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval as do we. While this isn’t our event it needs our support. It’s all about the troops!

This is a flag line mission only!  We are not involved in the escort of the bicycles so you may ride your motorcycle, trike, cage, bicycle, or horse to this event.  There are 5 different picnic areas in the facility. We will be in the BARN area. Web site link is below for more detailed info. Should be signs with BARN on them and possibly OSC signs.
