The Harley Riders Association annual Poker Run will be held on the weekend.

The ride is open to more than just Harleys. Dirt bikes, road bikes and riders of any kind of motorcycle are welcome to take part. Proceeds will be donated to Stewart House in Sydney. The house provides 12-day stays for disadvantaged students from all over NSW, including Broken Hill. While there, students attend classes and receive a range of medical services.
Nominations for the poker run are open on Saturday from 11am until noon at the Hog Lodge in Crystal Lane.
A $10 fee covers participation and a sausage sizzle afterwards.
Riders will visit four locations and receive a playing card at each one. The rider with the best hand at the end wins a prize.
There's a lot of other prizes on offer as well, for things such as the worst hand and the youngest and oldest rider.
After the ride participants are invited to return to the clubrooms for a celebration, including food and prize presentations.
