By CHERIE MCALLISTER The Kaukapakapa vol- unteer fire brigade bene- fited from this year s 5 Station Poker Run. About 200 motor- cyclists from around New Zealand roared out for the fifth annual event despite overcast wea- ther. Volunteer fireman and organiser David Ouwe- jan says their aim was to raise enough funds to pay off their new 7872 fire engine. The station s other appliance is owned by the council. They are used by the brigade s team of 20. Supporters cheered as the bikes headed off, led by a fire engine with its light flashing. Their journey cruised Kaipara Coast Highway towards Helensville and Shelly Beach stations before stopping for a bar- becue lunch at Muriwai. Their next stop was Kumeu before returning to Kaukapapa via Coatesville Highway. Motorcycles ranged from Triumph and Har- ley Davidson cruisers and three wheelers to the standard sports bike like Kawasaki and Honda. Companies that donated prizes included an automated garage opener from Chamber- lain, a Bikesport leather jacket, Ridgeline cloth- ing, t-shirts, hats and soccer balls from Liquor- land, Demon energy drinks and Pak N Save salads. There was also a helicopter flight on offer. Last year $6000 was raised for a four-wheel- drive vehicle for the Helensville station Riders are given a playing card at each sta- tion in the poker run. The winner is whoever has the best poker hand at the end. Vivid festivity: More than 60 floats will stand out and be cheered on by the crowds at this year's Kumeu Rotary Christmas Parade. Xmas parade in town By RANI TIMOTI Let the parade begin. The Kumeu Rotary Christmas Parade rolls into town tomorrow with more than 60 floats. Former New Zealand and Warriors league star Stacey Jones will be cruising in a Buick with Auckland mayor Len Brown after he starts the wheelbarrow races. Organiser Dale Wal- lace says there are lots of first-time entries and many have gone to a huge effort. She says parents should keep an eye on children and people shouldn t throw any- thing like lollies back at the floats because they may tempt chil- dren on to the road. This parade is all about the kids. The parade from 7pm is led by Kumeu police and community patrol cars before the music is pumped out by the Otahuhu and Dis- trict Pipe Band head- ing the floats. Sponsored by Tegel Foods, there has also been a $1000 donation for lollies from CID Resource Recovery. The main street will be closed at 6.45pm. The Singing Cowboy will be at Huapai Vil- lage from 4pm. The traditional Wai- mauku Lions Club Wheelbarrow Race starts from Freeride n Cycles at 6.30pm with the halfway change- over at Craig Walker s and finish line at Harcourts Kumeu. Held in conjunction with Huapai-Kumeu Fire Brigade there are plenty of prizes. During the parade, Huapai-Kumeu Lions will be collecting for the New Zealand Foun- dation of the Blind. The organisation is replacing tape-based talking books with specially adapted digi- tal devices to help visu- ally impaired New Zea- landers make use of its library.
