HomeFred Kamp Celebration Day

Fred Kamp Day - July 20, 2024 - Will Rogers Park Tennis Center - 9:04 AM

On June 16, 2003, then Governor Brad Henry declared July 19th as Fred Kamp Day in Oklahoma in honor of Fred’s dedication to OBS (he was one of the charter members) and, more specifically, to the Donut Ride. Fred led the Donut Ride faithfully for over 40 years, rarely missing a Saturday unless he was traveling out of town or in ill health. Fred was given an official proclamation document by the Governor himself. Fred has retired from regularly leading the Donut Ride, but he still shows up most every Saturday morning helps out by riding sweep quite often.


Since 2003, OBS observes Fred Kamp Day every year on the Saturday closest to July 19th. We encourage everyone who has ridden the Donut Ride down through the years to be there if you can to honor Fred once again. If you have a Fred Kamp t-shirt or an OBS jersey, please wear it for the occasion.

Fred has experienced some health issues lately, but his family says he will be there for the celebration at Kamp's 1910 Cafe (10 NE 10th Street) on July 20. Come help us celebrate Fred and his dedication to OBS and the Donut Ride.

NOTE: There will be rides other than the traditional Donut Ride (which starts at Will Roger Park Tennis Center at 9:00 AM) that will converge on Kamp's 1910 Cafe for the celebration. Watch the OBS Facebook Group for announcements about those rides.
