Beach Bike Poker Run

2016PokerRun16x20

 

The Parrot Heads’ biggest fund (and fun) raiser of the year is coming up on Saturday May 21:  THE BEACH BICYCLE POKER RUN!  This is an adult only event. All proceeds go to Semper Fi Odyssey Children’s Adventure Camp sending children of wounded/injured Marines and Sailors to camp for a week and then mentoring them throughout the school year; a chance for the community to give a little back to the families who have given so much for us.  Last year we raised $7000 at this event and had 213 riders, and we hope to top that this year.

Registration ($20) begins in the Emerald Club parking lot at 11:30, with DJ-JD (our own “Dr.” John Dyer) playing great tunes, raffle tickets for a variety of prizes donated by local merchants and Parrot Heads will be on sale, as well as logoed event T shirts.  PHolks are encouraged to dress up their bikes and themselves not only for a fun time and good laugh, but to compete for great prizes in this year’s categories: PIRATES, PHINS , & PHEATHERS; judging for this starts at 1:00.  At 2:00 sharp the masses hop on their bicycles and ride to six designated local restaurant/bars to pick up a poker card.  Upon returning to the Emerald Club no later than 5:00, there are cash prizes for the best poker hand; $300- 1st, $200- 2nd, $100- 3rd , some free grub, and awarding raffle winners.  Sela Dubb will be playing that night followed by Mike Mixer.  A rowdy time for a great cause; DON’T MISS IT!!

  1. Hello, my name is Frank Lucas. I am interested in riding in this event. I met a member of your club last weekend at the Bike the Banks/Crystal Coast Lighthouse Challenge. Her name is Bobbi. She said that I did not have to be a member of the club to ride as long as I pay the $20 entrance fee. I would love to ride because it is for a good cause and it sounds like a lot of fun. Please reply to me at LukeyLuke39@yahoo.com and advise me on how to sign up for the ride. I look forward to a reply from you. Thank you and have a good day. Also, your website is expertly done and well maintained.

    1. We were so busy with the ride, I don’t think anyone saw your note. I hope you were able to find us, we had a great time. We try to post all the details on the website.
