The Poker Run took place on Sunday, September 28th, from 10am until 2pm. It was sponsored by Company 9, Arcola Volunteer Fire Department. While the event was open to all vehicles, it was especially geared toward motorcycle riders. The participants paid $25.00 a piece and could ride to all fire-rescue departments in Loudoun County, where they chose a playing card. Their participation card was marked by each company.
Volunteers Rafe Nichols and Randy Breton from our Hamilton Volunteer Rescue Squad staffed a refreshment booth to provide water and fruit, and Bob Moore and Bill Clare helped on behalf of the Hamilton Volunteer Fire Department.
The event started and ended at the Arcola station. Prizes were awarded for the players with the best hands as well as worst hands, plus random door prizes drawings. The participants were also rewarded with gorgeous weather for the event.
