Members of the Combat Vets Motorcycle Association found a way to support troops abroad, and poker players worldwide are will likely be giddy with the news. The association set up a motorcycle ride, which spanned 108 miles, meant to raise support for Fort Drum’s USO.
To bring a bit more attention to the ride, however, they threw in a little bit of poker. Players had predetermined stops along their long route. At each of these stops, players were dealt cards that they were to hold onto for the entirety of the ride.
Once the biker players reached their final destination, Carthage, N.Y., they all revealed their hands. The player with the best and, surprisingly, the worst hands were given prizes.
The ride drew out 40 bikers to support the troops. The event also included raffles, a pig roast and auctions when the ride was complete.
