Troopers On The Lake 2016

Our annual event is designed to share time with our families and to fellowship with regional Buffalo Trooper and Buffalo Soldier clubs in the region.  This event was well attended and a good time was had by all.

The event began with a Meet and Greet that included dinner at the host hotel, the Airport Hilton.  The Phoenix Buffalo Troopers then led a ride to Canyon Lake for a barbecue picnic and a boat ride tour of the lake.
