Below are the details for the "Price of Liberty War Memorial" Mission. The lead agency for this request is the Austin Patriot Guard, and the mission will begin at the listed staging area. As members of the PGR each of you are invited and encouraged to participate in this momentous event for Texas. Upon arrival you will augment and assist Austin PGR in carrying out a successful mission as you do with each of our missions in the San Antonio Region. Texas RC's may be asked to assume RC duties as needed, wear your RC hats.

Currently, a procession of SA PGR from San Antonio is not an organized and PGR sanctioned part of this mission. Additionally, we may not participate in an official PGR procession without Law Enforcement Support. Therefore, the SA PGR will not officially organize a procession to the staging area.

That being said, there are a few SA PGR members meeting at 0700 hours, Saturday, December 2, 2017 at:

2760 N Interstate 35 Frontage Rd.
New Braunfels, TX 78130

To ride/drive up to the Staging Area as individuals or in a group, departing NLT 0800 hours for the 1-1.15 hour trip. Motorcycle parking depicted in the map is for ALL motorcycles.

Following the ceremony, lunch will be served for $10.00 per person, on your own. If you chose to participate in this event I will see you at the staging area in Austin. Please ride/drive responsibly and be safe.
