HERMON – Spectators at Dysart’s on Coldbrook Road plan to welcome a parade of “Egg Riders” at the 49th annual Dysart’s Snowmobile Ride-In for Pine Tree Camp on Saturday, Feb. 5.

The Q106.5 Egg Ride continues the nearly 50-year tradition of celebrity Egg Riders stuffing raw eggs down their snowmobile suits before the ride. Each egg represents a $50 pledge in support of Pine Tree Camp and its mission to serve Maine people with disabilities, according to a news release from Pine Tree Camp.

This year’s celebrities include:

• Bob Crowley, winner of “Survivor” season 17;

• Jared “Jedi” Baker of “Maine Cabin Masters”;

• John Gibbs, North American Ski-Doo Ambassador;


• Angela Luna, WABI TV5 morning anchor and reporter;

• Dan Cashman and Christie Robinson of The Nite Show;

• Joe Meyers, founder of Quarantine Karaoke;

• Jake Warn, founder of SledTRX;

• Scott Miller and Cindy Campbell of the Q106.5 Morning Show; and

• Dawn Willard-Robinson, director of Pine Tree Camp.


This year’s ride also includes a vintage sled “Antique Pit Stop” hosted at the Penobscot Snowmobile Club and an afternoon “Poker Run” in Hermon which is accessible by car as well as sled. All proceeds from the Dysart’s Ride-in support Pine Tree Camp.
