Poker Ride for Homeless Veterans

Poker Run / Ride for Homeless Veterans
This Event is open to Motorcycles, Bicycles and Cars!

Let's all get out there to support our Vets!

BIKES AWAY at 11:00 am SHARP! Registration CLOSES at 11:00 am!

MadHatterPromotions.com, BS Marketing & Promotions, and the SPCA of Brevard (all Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber Partners) are hosting a Bicycle Poker Run to benefit the National Veterans Homeless Support Organization, Titusville branch specifically, where the Homeless Veterans issue is very pronounced.

The route will take us from the Port Canaveral Cove area south to International Palms & back. In addition to participating as event stops all six venues are contributing substantially & directly to the cause! (We humbly thank them.) 

Total distance for this route will be a max round trip of about 13 miles

Hands are $10 each. You may buy more than one hand!
Best hands win $100, $60, $40, & several door prizes!
Score cards, maps, detailed directions, & rules provided.

We are adding an extra optional incentive for you to participate by adding another stop, American Legion Post 1, Titusville, and giving you a FREE additional card to draw. This adds an additional 48 miles round trip. Those NOT choosing the above extra stop may purchase an additional card for $5.

    You guys sure you want two Scooters in your group? I ride a Yamaha Morphis 250 CC. I have ridden with the big boys a lot. Haven't seen any other scooters in your group. :) My friend Bill rides an O6 Morphus too. See you Saturday if you promise not to laugh. I love my bike and I call her Purple Passion. Been a while since I had a bigger bike.

    From Grills were gonna take Rockledge drive to Indian River Drive to US 1 528 to Cape Canaveral. Rockledge and Indian River Drive are slow and curvy and very scenic near river. Should be an awesome ride.
