Meet the Big Horn Basin Riders for 2019

Support for our deployed troops happens in many ways....    

This old town is hoppin' t'night! 


The Big Horn Basin Riders have been running their annual fundraiser events around the Big Horn Basin where riders all join in to raise money for sending various support around the world to armed forces personnel from the Big Horn Basin area.   

This year's goal is to raise $10,000 for making and shipping care packages!

In 2019 the riders are holding their July 5, 2019 7pm "Meet & Greet" at the OASIS MOTEL & RV PARK here in Meeteetse, Wyoming.

Take-off is set for July 6, 2019 at 9am as they ride out of Meeteetse for this year's event. Kickstands Up!  


We hope you enjoy these photos! We'll post more info as the 2019 event unfolds. 


Riders went to several towns around the Big Horn Basin having their BINGO draws.

Later on Saturday, after 4pm, everyone will be returning to OASIS MOTEL & RV PARK's back yard

This year's Silent Auction will be raising funds toward their goals. 

Come on down to join in the gathering, to bid on great items and to enjoy the festivities as we celebrate American freedom. 

We will update this story as more information comes in.

Big Horn Basin Riders is a non profit 501c3 group of riders that love to ride and love our freedom we have thanks to the men and women serving our country.

"We host events to raise money so we can send care packages to our Troops serving from the Big Horn Basin area."

It is very expensive to send packages.
We are currently sending 45 boxes the 1st Thursday of every month.
It cost us around $750 each month to send these boxes.
The men and women who receive these care package get to have a taste from home.
It's the least we can do to say Thank you for fighting for us.
We host a big event on the 4th of July to raise money and invite everyone not just bikers.

Its a great way to celebrate our Freedom!


We are always looking for help to keep this going.

We will find a way to keep this going.

We wouldn't be here safe if it wasn't for their service.

Good evening sports fans!

The shooting registrations are trickling in. I encourage everyone who is coming to shoot to get your registrations in as soon as possible. By the end of July would be excellent. That way I can tailor the matches to the number coming.

Many thanks! Go to the range and practice!

I remain,

Yakima Red

Hello all,

Time to start thinking about the 2019 MTR!  We are scheduled to be in Meeteetse August 15, 16, 17,  2019.  

Paul, can you please make date changes to the registration form and email me so I can send it out to the group?

I was in touch with Dan last night and we will get an email out in the next couple days as he would like confirmation of regulators coming this year. 

I would also like to send out survey about the rally so any questions would be appreciated. 

Sherri or Dan,  Does anyone know if there will be a taste of Meeteetse this year?

Is there anything else we need to take action on before June 1st?

Hope everyone had a good winter.  Hope to hear from you soon.

Could you please let me know you got this message so that we don’t leave anyone out. Thanks.


P.S.  If you could please reply all to make comments that would also be appreciated as then no one is left out. Thanks.
