The Harley Owner’s Group (HOG) have several activities planned to mark the occasion of their 25th annual HOG Run - a fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy that always winds up with a huge banquet at Dryland Arena in Ashcroft.

Kamloops’ Harley Owner’s Group plans big for 25th anniversary

The HOGS have made Ashcroft part of their Poker Run for 25 years.

The members of Kamloops Chapter Harley Owner’s Group (H.O.G.) would like to invite your family to view The Parade of Flags being held on June 1 at 2 pm, as part of this year’s annual HOG Run. We will be starting the parade on Railway Ave. near Heritage Park and travelling throughout the local streets.

This street will be blocked off for safety and your entertainment. Please be sure to get your viewing spots before 1:30. Bikes will start to arrive in Ashcroft around noon. Please note Railway Ave. will be blocked off to traffic after noon, no public parking between 3rd and 8th streets.

We have invited the children of Ashcroft Elementary in Grades 1-6 to participate in a show n shine with their bikes. There will be separate classes for girls and boys. The winners of these two classes will be decided by vocal response from the crowd. (Yes, we will have a decimal reader on site.)

There will also be other games for the children to participate in, including a unisex slow race and a unisex ride the plank race, and the winners will be determined by stop watch. Winner plaques for these two categories will be awarded and all participants will receive a certificate of participation.

As to the Adult participation in this event, there will be a biker show ‘n shine and only one plaque will be presented. This plaque will represent the Citizens of Ashcroft Favourite Bike. Voting will be limited to non-rider crowd participants and this plaque will be awarded at the end of the games, to enable you to see the winner of your choice.

Biker participation will involve two separate singles unisex events, two separate couple events and one unisex Chapter Challenge event. All of this is being designed for your entertainment. The events will end at 4.

Kamloops Chapter would like to thank The Village of Ashcroft, Ashcroft Firefighters and the citizens of Ashcroft for your 25 years of dedication to helping make our poker run the success is has been. We look forward to seeing you at our event rain or shine!
