On Sunday 6th July, the usual quiet start to the day in the sleepy town of Pomona will be stirred by the sound of nearly two hundred bikes gathering for the start of the 8th Annual Pomona Poker Run.
The Poker Run, which will wind its way through some of the Noosa Hinterland’s most beautiful scenery, is a major fundraiser for the Wimmers King of the Mountain Festival, a project of the Cooroy-Pomona Lions Club.
This, ‘big blind special’ starts at Stan Topper Park, Pomona at 9.00am and takes participants on a relaxing ride ending at a mystery destination. Staying poker-face about the run, the only hint that organiser, Stephen Stewart, will give is in the theme of this year’s run, Dam to Dam. “It’s going to be a great day,” he said. “Along the ride you collect playing cards from each stop and the person holding the best hand at the end of day is declared the winner.
“There will be random draws throughout the day with the chance to scoop some great prizes. We provide a delicious homemade smoko and we end the day back at the Pomona Hotel with a cold beer, sausage sizzle and presentations. ”
Registration for the Poker Run begins at 8.00am at Stan Topper Park, Pomona. The cost of entry is $15 a hand (per bike) plus $5 per pillion. Bacon and egg muffins will be available while you register.
For pre-registration information please phone Stephen Stewart on 0419 712 235 or 544 60211.
