From Chapter 49-4 and Utah CVMA welcome to beautiful Cedar City, Utah for the Region 8 Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association 2019 meeting, this is a SANCTIONED event. This is a very welcoming area to vets and has lots of incredibly fun places to ride. You can come early and get some rides into National Parks around the area if you want while you are here. We have both Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument at over 10,000 feet and Bryce Canyon National Park within 90 minutes of here. It does require a park pass. If you are disabled vet you can get a park pass for free, otherwise it costs 35.00 per vehicle.
Everything we are doing this weekend has very little profit margin built in but 100% of all money we do make will go towards the CVMA 49-4 Homeless Veteran fund that is managed through the Iron County Homeless Shelter. Due to our being a very small and new chapter we are doing our annual POKER RUN in conjunction with the Region 8 meeting on Saturday morning. We have picked out a route we think everyone will enjoy that will take approximately 2 hours. We will have the route up on here at least a month prior to meeting. We will also provide info on some alternative rides as well.
We are asking people to please purchase your meal tickets, pay POKER RUN fee and t-shirts prior to coming to help us establish a head count. This will also help us reduce our losses from the event. We are selling the package of all 3 for 75.00, 10 dollars less than if you pay in person or buy individually. (see store at bottom of page)
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
