Everything set for Run for the Border Saturday

By Gary A. DeVon

OROVILLE – A convoy of 300 or more riders on their motorcycles is expected to roar into town as the 6th Annual Run for the Border comes to Oroville this Saturday.

The Columbia River Harley Owners Group (HOG) sponsors the 150 mile run from Wenatchee to Oroville as a charitable event. This year they will again be raising funds for North Central Washington Kids in Need. Although the club is made up of Harley Davidson owners, all types of motorcycles are welcome to join in the ride, according to Ken Taylor of Oroville who is helping to coordinate the event.

“They start up in Wenatchee at 10 in the morning and usually stop in Pateros which is about half way,” said Taylor. “We expect the convoy to start rolling in to town around 1 p.m.”
