On April 19th at 9:00am there will be a poker run in the Philadelphia area to benefit cancer research. There will be a lot of classic cars and also a lot of motorcycles.

For those of you not familar with how a poker run works you all meetup at a location and then "cruise" together from checkpoint to checkpoint. At each of the five checkpoints you are given a card. Whoever has the best "poker hand" at the end of the run wins 60% of the money and the other 40% goes to charity. At the meetup point there will be an assortment of breakfast foods and at another checkpoint which is at Ridley Creek State Park there will be people grilling and giving out hotdogs and hamburgers and other bbq foods. I believe the total length of the run is about 100 miles give or take.

My brother is one of the organizers of this event and he will be there with his 1966 a/c cobra along with a lot of other nice cars and bikes. He frequently runs events like these and car shows all to benefit cancer research. Anyone that would like to come is welcome to attend just let me know if you're interested I'd like to have a strong representation of SV Riders there! Should be a fun day hope to see you there! The more people the bigger the prize!

I'll try and make it. The Pottstown checkpoint is only 5 minutes from my house, so I have no excuse not to go...

I might be up for it. Mudsurfer, we should meet up sometime. My girlfriend lives in Gilbertsville, and in the spring/summer I usually take the SV up there on the weekends.

Hrm, possible with a lean more towards unlikely. I won't know until the time is closer.

I am going to talk to my brother tomorrow about altering the route a little bit. Right now the route is not set in stone and I know a few roads that are not too far off track that offer some variety and some nice twisties. I'll talk to him and update you guys when I know.

Yeah I'll probably do that later on tonight. I can't access meetup.com from work it's blocked due to "social networking". :(

I just noticed this thread, but I think I would like to go and I can't foresee anything getting in the way. I live in Clifton Heights in Delaware County. Anyone want to meet up with me to do this?

Bike shopping is kicking into full gear this weekend so I see good odds.
