Calling all motorcycles

Saturday, June 7 Quesnel will be hosting its 16th annual Poker Run.

Saturday, June 7 Quesnel will be hosting its 16th annual Poker Run.

Each year since its start in 1999, excluding last year, donations from the run have helped different local charities. This year proceeds from the run will be going towards Quesnel Special Olympics.

There is a $10 entry fee per person. Registration for the run starts at 10 a.m. and participants should be ready to ride, leaving Maple Park Mall at noon.

The route takes the riders to Hixon, Cottonwood House, Ten Mile Lake Fire Hall, Kersley Fire Hall, and finishing at Murphy’s Pub collecting cards at each stop along the way.

“Gonna have a blast rain or shine,” organizer Marc Valios said.

The ride can raise anywhere between $500 – $1,500 depending on how many people come out to support the ride. In previous year the poker run has seen riders from Nelson and as far south as Kelowna taking part.

So motorcycles around Quesnel get gassed-up and come out to enjoy a day of riding for a cause.

At the end of the ride there are various prizes given out to the participants including a 50/50 draw and cash prizes for the best hand, the worse hand, farthest ride, and many more.

For information contact Marc Valios 1-250-747-3292.
