Hello, we're Ron and Sandy Giddis.......
We went to Rolling Thunder in 1998 and 2000 and were impressed. The reason for the event is to help
bring back POW's and MIA's as there are still so many unaccounted for. When we got home from the ride in 2000,
we decided it was time for an event in this area to help people remember what Memorial Day is actually all about: besides
family get togethers, picnics and vacations. Some people have forgotten those who have paid the ultimate price for us to have
our freedom and to be able to take vacations and picnics. Sevier and surrounding County motorcycle riders didn't have
anything to go to that was close and at home. That is when we decided to put together an event to Honor our Fallen Military,
Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMT's. Our first one was in 2001. We started the first year
with 75 bikes and a few that didn't ride. We have doubled each year and last year 2008 we had well over 1500 bikes.
