Each year the riding season brings us many wonderful events.  Some which are held annually and others that are new. There are those that each of us attend year after year because they have made it to our favorite list. But then there are those handful of events that go right to the top of the list, which is where you will find the 81 Poker Run. The sign up for the run was held at the Bellmore, NY Train Station from 9:30 am to 11am. At high noon the party began at the Hells Angels LI clubhouse where supporters and friends gathered to share in plenty of food and drink. Vendors with quality goods filled the clubhouse yard including the Red & White booth where folks lined up to purchase the 19th Annual Poker Run shirts and other cool L.I. 81 Support Gear merchandise.

Lex Grey and the Urban Pioneers owned the stage with their gritty sophistication uniting unusual instrumentations, traditional blues and hard hitting classic rock. Next up, Sea Monster, a local LI band whose sound combines elements of punk, psychobilly and blues. These two bands exploded on stage creating a show reminiscent of a wild rock concert.

There were trophies and prizes awarded in the bike contest, and for both the highest and lowest poker hands. If you missed out on attending the 19th annual, come join the party next year!
