Motorcycle enthusiasts to support local charities in annual Poker Run
In the lead up to the King of the Mountain Festival on 23 July is the 11th annual Poker Run on Sunday 2 July. After last year’s event saw a record number of participants, motor cycle enthusiasts from near and afar are again expected to don their leathers in pursuit of good company and a scenic ride through the beautiful Noosa hinterland.
Proudly supported by the Cooroy-Pomona Lions Club, riders and their passengers will enjoy a scenic trip through the hinterland and can join in on a friendly game of poker along the way by collecting cards from designated stops. The holder of the best poker hand at the end of the day is declared the winner and there are additional random prize draws during the day. Last year saw over 300 riders participate in the Cooroy-Pomona Lions Club major fundraiser.
Cost of entry is $20 per rider (including poker hand) plus $10 per pillion (non-poker hand). Registrations commence from 7.30am at Stan Topper Park, Pomona. Bacon & Egg Muffins will be available to purchase before a 9am departure. Free tea and coffee and delicious home-made morning tea is also offered to participants. The ride culminates at the Pomona Bowls club where riders can enjoy a beer during the raffle prize draws and winner’s presentation, and a free sausage sizzle.
As a volunteer-run organisation dedicated to serving and supporting the local community, fund-raising is an important part of the day and all entry fees go towards helping the Cooroy-Pomona Lions support a wide range of local charities and school programs.

Narelle LaddThank you for posting this marvellous sight to behold. I do love seeing the many moods of Mt Cooroora in beautiful Pomona. And to think people run up to the top for fun every year at King of the Mountain, along with the many who walk up there on a regular basis.1 · 2 weeks ago
