This years Shriners Poker Run was much different from years past. This year the run was 87 miles long. After leaving the Shriner parking lot you went to Broadway turning right to the Walgreens at Houghton & Broadway. Here you picked a number from one to 52. From there you continued on Houghton to Catalina Highway where you turned right to go up to Mt. Lemmon stopping at the San Pedro Outlook where you picked a second number. Next it was on up the mountain to the Ski lift parking lot across from the Iron Door where you picked a third number. Now back down the mountain to Catalina & Tanque Verde, B of A parking lot where you picked your fourth number. Now it is back to the Shriners via Wilmont, Speedway, to Tucson Blvd., where you will picked your fifth and final number and they then let you know your hand. The low hand drawn was a 6,5,3,2,A. The high hand was Q’s full 3’s. There were over 300 entries this year in the Poker Run. A lot more than years past.
Yours truly DID NOT win the Harley this year. I guess winning twice is asking too much. Below are some pictures of the ride and some of the many bikes in the parking lot. Some of these photos were actually taken while I was coming down the mountain. I was just pointing out in the general direction and they came out pretty good.
