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!
The 3 Amigos, the Range Officers and Danny Sedam have arranged what appears to be another great time in Meeteetse. Now it is time to register so they can plan for the number of Regulators arriving in August.
Danny Sedam has purchased the OASIS MOTEL & RV PARK. Danny did not purchase the former Vision Quest motel.
More rooms will be available and reservations can be made by calling them at the OASIS MOTEL 307-868-2551.
They have a new e-mail address:
Information for MTR is as follows:
The cost will be $70.00 per regulator and includes:
Lunch will be available for purchase at the range and a donation bucket for the Range Officers expenses.
A registration form is attached. I am trying to update information on Regulators, so please complete legibly. Also attached is a Schedule for the shooting events and a Shooters Release. Please complete the Registration Form and Shooters Release and return to me by July 1, 2010. Send no money to me; pay when you check in upon arriving in Meeteetse.
You still have time to order merchandise until April 1st. I have enclosed the list of available items. Remember to bring your challenge coin, as we encourage its use again. I have a lot of coins available to order.
I am sending to those of whom we have an e-mail address, or by regular mail if not. If you know of past Regulators that are not on our list, please share this information.
