The registration table, merchandise and various sponsor tents open at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Registration is mandatory in order to participate in the ride.
The first leg of the Motorcycle Ride for Dad will depart from Polo Park under police escort to Assiniboia Downs. The ride then heads north to Selkirk, Gimli and back, culminating with a wind-up and awards reception at Cowboys — Canad Inns Windsor Park, 3:30 p.m. The wind-up event features a 50/50 draw and prize raffle.
