This is how fast time flies. The Q106.5 Egg Ride arrives in less than a month. And it will be the 36and year!
Someone contacts Bob Duchesne and tells him that what he created is still in progress.
And with the snow falling, everyone involved is smiling and crossing their fingers thinking “Let it snow. Let it snow. Let it snow!”
February 5 is the date of the ride. The reason we ride is to raise as much money as possible to benefit Pine Tree Camp.
Pine Tree Camp is for children and adults with disabilities, and they have an open door policy, where anyone can attend, regardless of their ability to afford tuition.
This is where we come in and why we will be part of the 49and Annual Dysart Snowmobile Ride-In.
Here are the many ways you can help financially:
With as little as a dollar, you can participate in the fundraising effort and feel good about contributing.
Many businesses in the area sell carton eggs. They start at $1 and go up from there. They will ask you at checkout if you would like to purchase “an egg” to benefit Pine Tree Camp. You write your name on it and they post it on their walls.
Buy an egg now at:
- Dysart Restaurant and Truck Stop in Hermon

This year the course runs from Dysart’s to the Penobscot Snowmobile Club in Hermon, off the sleds for some fundraising activities and then back for the return to the start/finish line.

Notice I left the “egg” part of the show until the end.
We stuff our costumes with raw eggs for the ride, and yes, it’s as messy as you can imagine.
I can’t stress enough that it’s for the kids to go to camp. And every dollar you bring is greatly appreciated.
You are invited to share in the fun, join us on Saturday February 5th for the start or finish at Dysart’s Truck Stop or halfway at the Penobscot Snowmobile Club.
