Good turnout for first annual Tiger Booster Club Poker Run
With 58 motorcycles and more than 80 people participating, the first annual Tiger Booster Club Poker Run was a success.
“It was a fun start for what will be an annual highlight to our athletic department summers,” Tiger Booster Club president Mark Patrick said.
The event, which was held Saturday, July 3, started at the Alumni Bar & Grill in Arkansas City. Riders then headed to the Mini Mart in Dexter to draw their first card.
They drew the remaining cards at the 160 Café in Burden, Rock PowerSports in Rock, KPM Computers in Winfield, and the Pizza Hut Wing Street in Arkansas City. The Poker Run covered roughly 100 miles.
The riders’ cards were recorded and the ride concluded back at the Alumni Bar & Grill to announce the winners.
Kurt Oswald of Goddard took home the $250 prize for the best hand, while Michelle Lee of Newkirk, OK, was awarded $100 for having the low hand.
There were numerous door prizes handed out, while Debbie Foster took home a gift bag of salon products for being the first registered female rider.
Future Tiger Booster Club Poker Runs will continue to be held on the first Saturday in July.
