Tomah VA to host Platoon Run Car and Motorcycle Show

28th annual event scheduled for August 24

The Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center will host the 28th annual Platoon Run Car and Motorcycle Show on Sunday, August 24.

The Platoon Run Car and Motorcycle Show provide entertainment for Veterans who are currently hospitalized. This event also offers the opportunity for the public to see a variety of rare and classic cars such as model T’s, ’57 Chevy’s, and scores of flashy motorcycles.

A continental breakfast will be provided by Root River Rods and Kustoms at Tomah Recreation Park from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.  The event will begin at noon with a “cruise” of antique cars, trucks and motorcycles riding north on Superior Avenue to the VA Medical Center.

A panel of veterans will judge the entries at 2:30 p.m. and select three winners of the show: best car, best motorcycle and People’s Choice.

The Platoon Run is sponsored by Wizards of Rods, Abate of Wisconsin, Root River Rods and Kustoms, and Boy Scout Troop 146 of Monona, Wis.
