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!!
