Try your luck on the Harley Club Poker Run
Wednesday, 24th August, 2011
The Harley Riders Association’s annual Poker Run is on soon and all the money raised is going to the local Rescue and Rehabilitation of Australian Native Animals (RRANA).
The run will take place on Saturday, September 3 with riders meeting at the Harley clubrooms at 10am for the ride that starts at noon.
They will cover more than 100 kilometres and visit four locations where they will receive a playing card.
The rider with the best hand at the end wins a prize.
Other prizes are on offer as well for things such as the worst hand and the youngest and oldest riders.
It is open to dirt bikes and road bikes - in fact, riders of any kind of registered motorcycle are welcome to join in.
A $10 fee covers participation and a sausage sizzle in the morning. Proceeds will go to RRANA.
Harley Club member, Des Charnock, said the poker run had been going for about 10 years and was always popular.
“Generally about 80 to 100 bikes come,” Mr Charnock said.
After the ride participants are invited to return to the clubrooms for a celebration.
There will be food, a band (Chinchilla) and prize presentations.
“Everyone is welcome back here,” Mr Charnock said.
