Second year of Three Angels Memorial Ride held by R.C. Eagles Club

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Eagles Club held the Three Angels Memorial Ride, Saturday, June 25, which is the second year of the memorial.

The memorial is held to honor and remember the three victims – Dakota Zaiser, Charles Red Willow and Ashley Nagy – of a triple homicide that happened August 2020.

“We host the event because Dakota Zaiser was my son. So, to keep his memory alive, we host it and do all the proceeds to a local charity in memory of all three of those victims.” Dixie Brown, chairperson of the Eagle Riders Club.

People that pre-registered for the memorial participated in a poker run. They received a poker card when they checked-in that was stamped at five different stops throughout the ride.

The stops were Fraternal Order of Eagles 3555 [Rapid City], Rimrock Happy Tavern [Rapid City], Country Store at Three Forks [Rapid City], Boss’ Pizza & Chicken [Keystone] and Gaslight Dining Salon [Rockerville].

Pre-register was asked for anyone who wanted a shirt, so enough were ordered. The poker run was $35 for the first poker hand and a Memorial Shirt, and additional poker hand was $10 and didn’t include a shirt.

Just the poker run was $20 and people could either pre-register or sign up the day of for it. Memorial shirts were $20 for smalls to extra larges; $25 for 2XL and up.

Proceeds from the memorial will be donated to the South Dakota Service Dogs.

The event was held last year, and the Eagles Club plans to continue the event following years.

“Last year, it was slow because we had 42 degree weather leaving here, but we had fog and rain and we went ahead with the ride anyhow. And this year, you know, we got probably 25 or 30 bikes out there right now. We’re hoping for a few more,” OC Chambers, President of Eagle Riders, said.

Pulled pork sandwiches for purchase after the poker run, and a live auction followed at 4 p.m.

There was also some door prizes handed out and a 50/50 drawing.
