BENEFIT FUNDRAISER FOR THE LISBON VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY

All proceeds from this ride will go directly to the Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company for the purchase of an EMT-ATV. Currently, when there is a trail riding accident in the parts of the DNR Patuxent Trails serviced by LVFC and the rider can only be moved out of the park via an EMT-ATV, there can be a considerable wait time as Lisbon has to borrow this critical emergency vehicle from another station.

  

Rides will Begin at 2 p.m., with staggered start times

Cookout starts at 4 p.m.

$50 to ride and dinner • $35 just dinner


ONLINE REGISTRATION REQUIRED - CLICK HERE


  

RAIN/GROUND CONDITIONS

In the event of rain or soft ground conditions, the cookout will go on, but the trail ride will not, as we do not want to cause unnecessary damage to the DNR trails. In the event of rain, we will be able to use the HCIBH clubhouse for dinner. Because 100% of these proceeds will go to purchase a vital piece of equipment that can save your life or the life of someone you know, there will be no refunds for the cancellation of the ride, nor will the trail ride will not be rescheduled. 

But the cookout goes on, rain or shine!
