Local television stations were on hand for the 2018 Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-in and Q106.5 Egg Ride to benefit Pine Tree Camp took place on February 3.
The morning was sunny and cold, but the temperatures did not dampen the spirits of friends who came to support Pine Tree Camp. It all began with a benefit breakfast at the Hungry Hollows 76ers Snowmobile Club in Levant.
After a hearty breakfast, the Q106.5 “Egg Riders” suited up for their ride to Newport. In an annual tradition that dates back more than 30 years, the riders stuffed raw eggs down their snowmobile suits before hitting the trail. Each egg represents a pledge of $50 to help send people to camp. Eggs Riders this year included camp parent, Amy Judson along with Pine Tree Camp director, Dawn Willard-Robinson and Q106.5 personalities Scott Miller, Cindy Campbell, Paul Wolfe and Erik Owens. They left Levant with a collective total of 1,620 eggs stuffed in their snowsuits.
The Egg Riders arrived in Newport just in time for the benefit luncheon sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets. Community members enjoyed a delicious meal featuring pulled pork sandwiches and haddock chowder.
The Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-in and Q106.5 Egg Ride would not be possible without the generous sponsors, donors and volunteers. All funds raised go directly to fund tuition to Pine Tree Camp, so that no camper is turned away due to inability to pay tuition.
