NOTE PARKING AT PNC: Everybody (cars, trucks, motorcycles, family) go up the middle road (second right as you enter PNC) When you park make sure the road remains open for both emergency vehicles as well as other people coming to PNC to visit their loved ones.
PGR cars/trucks turn right at the top of the cemetery and park along the curb on the west road. PGR flag truck parks at the top, to the right of the flagpole, like before.
PGR motorcycles can once again park at the top, to the right of the flagpole, where parking is level. Make sure your bikes are parked close together so they don’t protrude into the roadway. When you leave PNC, exit down the east or west roadway, NOT the middle road.
Following CDC/Government guidelines/mandates and directives from our State Captain, the following precautions are to be followed:· All members are required to wear a face mask/cloth covering at all times during the mission.
