Worlds Largest Poker Run in Winter Haven
Fire News



The World’s Largest Poker Run 2010 is history

The World’s Largest Poker Run was held on Saturday in Winter Haven, Fl. The ride was to benefit Fallen Firefighter Survivors Foundation. Due to its size the poker run made history last year when it broke the Guinness’s Book of World Records for The World’s Largest Poker Run.

The ride coordinator Matt Nichols of RedKnights and Sherri Lang founder of the Fallen Firefighter Survivors Foundation, were up early getting the event started. The ride started at Honda of Winter Haven and bikers arrived early to take part in the ride. Some of the riders came from as far away as Wyoming and Virginia. Many came from around the state. The entire parking lot of the Honda Center had to be roped off to accommodate all the bikes.


 Winter Haven was just one part of a much larger efforts to break last year’s record of “The World’s Largest Poker Run”. This year’s effort was attempted in some 16 states. However due to some bad weather, some of the states had to cancel Saturdays ride. In Winter Haven the weather was great and many turned out for the ride. Numbers on attendance was not yet available and will be posted later on FFSF.

                Riders checked in at 08:30 and the ride began at 10:30. A typical poker run is when bikers ride to different pre determined stops and get a card. After visiting all stops and receiving the cards, they return to play their best hands. Riders with the best hand win prizes as well as the rider with the worst hand. Once riders completed the rides they rode to the Auburndale Speedway where some 20 vendors were set up like Smoke Showin BBQ, Star&Shield and others. On display also was a car show, wheelie magic and PCSO K-9 demonstration.
