Originally known as the Egg Run, the Q106.5 Egg Ride turns 35 in 2021.
I know we are snowmobiling most of the time, in the great outdoors, but there are a lot of other parts of the Egg Ride that need to be taken into account.
We start with a breakfast at the Hungry Hollow 76ers Snowmobile Club in the Levant. There are also other events, including an auction. And it’s all done inside their clubhouse, which as you can imagine isn’t huge. There’s no way to socially distance yourself and it’s usually a breakfast buffet, so it’s now available too. We also stop halfway through the hike at the Penobscot Snowmobile Club. After all, we are hungry after an hour of cycling. Joke. Of course, we stop because there are related events there. The conclusion of the auction. They also sell delicious dough boys to the gathered audience. Again, social distancing is difficult to maintain in this situation.
All of us at Q106.5, although saddened by the decision, fully understand it. It would be horrible if we were to organize the event against state rules and someone fell with the coronavirus. It’s not worth it.
But when all is said and done, the important part of the Q106.5 Egg Ride is that it is raising money for Pine Tree Camp. They do not refuse any camper because of the ability to pay. This is why we are driving. To collect as much money as possible, and that’s where you come in. Hope you can contribute like you’ve done in the past, and there are many ways, and culminating with Q106 tuna .5 b EGG. A radiothon the first week of February on Q106.5.
It’s time to take a step back in time with photos of the Q106.5 Egg Ride from the past.
From 2020, when there was not enough snow to ride, it was us in the back of a trailer, on which we traveled a similar route, sitting on hay bales. Believe me it’s not as much fun as being on the machines on a wooded trail.
2019. We have to roll. Yes. This is the group of eggs at the end of the journey.
2018 was a tribute to Steve Galen who was with the Hungry Hollows Club. He has looked after us so well every year, and there has never been a man so nice. I miss you Steve. He used to say that real men wear pink, so to my knowledge this is the only year in 35 where the t-shirts we wear on the ride are indeed pink.
It was so cold that year, and yes we were able to ride, that someone had a nosebleed.
Load those eggs, we have to roll!
And in the end, we un-eggs.
And a lot of times, it’s more fun than expected. Title: Cindy gets tackled by a game warden.
Hey, there’s Todd Simcox from TV5. Looks like a nice weather day to Todd. Thank you.
Wayne Harvey prepares to leave.
Cindy is loaded with eggs, and I mean loaded because it looks like her son doing the egging.
Shout out to Ed from Workstore who supplies Egg Ride t-shirts year after year. He doesn’t just give them away, he always comes up with such creative touches. Thanks Ed!
Wow. Black and white. The Egg Ride goes back a long way. It’s Bob Duchesne the creator of the Egg Ride right next to Cindy Campbell
