Kick off the new year with friends, food, the great Maine outdoors and – best of all – the knowledge that you’re helping Maine kids and adults with disabilities attend a summer camp that means the world to them. Get ready for the 47th annual Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-in and Q-106.5 Celebrity Egg Ride to benefit Pine Tree Camp!
** ** ** ** ** IMPORTANT UPDATE ** ** ** ** **
No snow? No problem! The Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-in and Q106.5 Egg Ride will roll on this Saturday with a convoy parade!
Thanks to the generosity of Dysart’s, the Q106.5 Egg Riders will climb aboard a flatbed trailer for a special convoy parade led by Maine Game Wardens.
The convoy will kick off at the Hungry Hollow 76ers Clubhouse in Levant with a silent auction and all-you-can-eat breakfast.
After breakfast, the Q106.5 Egg Riders will continue the tradition of stuffing raw eggs down their snowmobile suits before hopping on the flatbed. Each egg represents a $50 pledge from Q106.5 listeners.
Escorted by Maine Game Wardens, the Q106.5 Egg Ride convoy parade will leave the Hungry Hollow 76ers Clubhouse in Levant at 9:00 a.m. and arrive at 10:30 a.m. at the Penobscot Snowmobile Club’s special Antique Pit Stop; featuring vintage sleds from the 1920s through the 1970s and refreshments courtesy of the Carmel Snowmobile Club. This one-of-a-kind pit stop is open to the public. The convoy will leave the pit stop at 11:00 a.m. and continue to Dysart’s on Coldbrook Road in Hermon for the traditional de-egging and benefit luncheon, with an expected arrival time of 11:30 a.m.
