This year, the Amarillo Police Department is going to be hosting an event for both civilians and law enforcement. The event is a motorcycle skills and training challenge.
Welcome to the first ever Iron Horse Shootout in Amarillo.
Sounds Neat, But What The Heck Is The Iron Horse Shootout
According to the website for the event, it will be tailored to both civilian and law enforcement motorcycle riders. The event is slated to be a three day event for riders.
An Event For Both Experienced And Beginning Riders
The best part of this event, from my perspective, is the opportunity to learn from skilled riders. If you recently got into motorcycle riding, this is an event that will put you in close proximity with individuals who will definitely be able to show you a thing or two.
Not Just About Motorcycles, The Iron Horse Shootout Is For A Great Cause
According to the event website, the Iron Horse Shootout is a benefit with all proceeds going to a very noble organization. Proceeds will be going to the 100 Club of the Texas Panhandle.
The 100 Club of the Texas Panhandle is an awesome organization that exists to provide assistance to the families of law enforcement officers or firefighters who are injured or killed in the line of duty.
To go a step even further, the 100 Club helps provide firefighters and law enforcement officials with much needed, life saving equipment. This is equipment that is much needed, but isn't able to be obtained with budgeted funds.
