Poker run fun for brigades Red escort:A fire truck leads motorcyclists from last year's Poker Run. Bikers can get their motors running for an annual fundraiser. The Five Station Po- ker Run is a fun cruisy ride between five volun- teer fire stations in the nor-west. This year s sixth event is hosted by Kumeu on November 20 with proceeds going towards a lighting unit. At each of the stations, bikers are given a playing card and at the end of the run whoever has the best poker hand wins the major prize. Founder Stephen Sparnon of the Kumeu- Huapai brigade says the event initially began as a way for firefighters to socialise away from the job. The event has grown from 36 to last year s 135 participants which raised about $6000 for a second appliance at Kau- kapakapa station. Open to all motorcyc- list enthusiasts, there are plenty of spot prizes topped with a meal at the end of the run. The route is from Kumeu-Huapai to Muri- wai, Shelly Beach, Hel- ensville and Kaukapa- kapa. If anyone is inter- ested in the bikes, they can look at them parked on State Highway 16 in front of Kumeu station before and after the run, Mr Sparnon says. Registration starts at Kumeu from 9am with the run at 10am. T-shirts and badges are on sale. Tickets must be bought by November 18 at: Bikesport, Helensville, (09) 420-7117.
