Largest PWC ‘Show of Force’ Event Nears
The American Watercraft Association’s 3rd Annual DC Freedom Ride is scheduled for July 14. The event is billed as the largest “show of force” PWC ride in the nation, a unique opportunity to show elected leaders and government officials that PWC enthusiasts are actively involved and interested in access issues. Plus, it’s a fun way to do it.
Registration will begin in Leesylvania State Park at 8 a.m., followed by a 10 a.m. riders meeting. Group photos will be taken in front of the Lincoln Memorial. The ride will be followed by a free lunch courtesy of Yamaha at Tim’s Rivershore.
The ride is scheduled to last approximately six hours and will be strictly maintained as a fun event. The fee to participate is $20, and includes park entrance, launch fee, lunch, goodie bag and commemorative T-shirt. All proceeds will go to VetDogs, which provides service dogs to combat wounded veterans.
