EBLES Annual Poker Ride & Trail Class

Poker Ride 2019

33 riders attended our Annual Poker Ride on Sunday April 28, 2019. Funds were raised through the sale of 80 poker hands and entry fees for the 12 participants of the Trail Class.

A special thanks to Adrianna Hamm who judged the Trail Class and came up with a very creative course.

Thank-you to the CRD Parks for allowing us to host this great event and for clearing a lot of overgrown trails the week before the ride.

A big thank-you to all the volunteers:

  • Ted - prize gathering, flagging and deflagging
  • Gary - parking
  • Kristin - course flagging, cleaning the facilities, set up and take down of the trail course, de-flagging the course, bringing coffee, and a whole lot more
  • Lara - organization
  • JoAnne, Pam and Dianne - registration and hand collection
  • Claire and Pam - prize gathering
  • Pauline - handing out cards at Jennings Lane
  • Doug - data entry for hand sorting
  • Joyce - handing out cards at the bridge
  • Lynn - seting up prizes

Finally, thank-you to all the participants in the Poker Ride and the Trail Class who made this event possible.

Thank-you to the 2019 Sponsors
