9th Annual Shands Burn Center Poker Run

By “Kneecap”

[autoviewer id="320" width="600" height="600" ]

It is said that Florida only has two seasons January and Summer. I believe it has four seasons:
Tolerable, Hot, Very Hot and ARE YOU KIDDING ME. The Red Knights MC Chapter 11 that sponsored the 9th Annual Shands Burn Center Poker Run picked a day right between the two seasons of Tolerable and Hot. As Mister Rogers would say, “It was a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”.

We started out in Ormond Beach at the Beaver Bar, had a great breakfast and headed off to the ocean to Finn’s Beachside Pub in Flagler Beach. The view of the ocean from the upper deck was awesome. Heading South on A1A with the ocean on our left, we rode to Highbridge and turned onto The Loop for a stop in Korona/Bunnell at the White Eagle Lounge. Next, we headed down Route 1 to Port Orange, and stopped at the Roadside Tavern on S. Nova Road. It was then off to the First Turn Steakhouse & Sports Lounge on S. Ridgewood Avenue, where we were greeted by the very personable owner Denise Hilliard. Here we had great food and enjoyed the entertainment by the Mistreater Band. There was 50/50, a silent auction, door prizes and of course, the best poker hand. The Red Knights have one of the best organized poker runs that I go on. I’m looking forward to next year and hope the weather is as good.

A check was presented for $1500 to Janet Popp and Laura Roberson from Shand’s Hospital at Cracker Barrel which is greatly appreciated by the foundation.
