By RANI TIMOTI All the elements came together for a successful motorcyclists annual fundraiser. The Five Station Poker Run involving 181 bikes notched up $5000 for a new portable and quiet lighting unit for the Kumeu-Huapai volunteer fire brigade. Motorcycle enthusiasts, who came from as far as Waihi, also enjoyed a meal and plenty of spot prizes from nor-west businesses. It was just a great day -- good weather, food and com- pany, founder Stephen Sparnon says about the sixth event. Everyone was saying how well organised it was. The fun cruisy ride is tra- ditionally held between five volunteer fire stations in the nor-west. 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. The event initially began as a way for firefighters to social- ise away from the seriousness of the job. Next year s ride will fundra- ise for the Muriwai station on November 18.
