The Horsefly Volunteer Fire Department presented an ATV Poker Run on Horsefly Mountain on July 20.
There was excellent participation by riders from l00 Mile House, McLeese Lake, Williams Lake and Horsefly.
The event was held on a 45 kilometre trail around Horsefly Mountain, right up to sub-alpine country with spectacular views of the Cariboo Mountains and Horsefly and Quesnel Lake.
Trail Boss was Wayne Johnson, who also explored and laid out the trail.
A total of 63 riders took part, plus 28 people registered as Ghost Riders, who took part in the poker event, but did not actually ride the trail.
The riders were treated to trail dogs on top of the mountain, and burgers and Caesar salad during the prize presentations.
Winners were Terry Allen (best poker hand), Nick Aldridge (second), Monika Sclaepfer (third), Tom Edmondson (early bird draw) & Lena Exshaw (first person registered)
Major prizes were donated by Williams Lake Honda, Spectra Power Sports, Horsefly Businesses, Rosk Power Equipment, C & Ski Small Engines.
Thank you to those generous sponsors.
Proceeds from the day are going toward construction of the new fire hall in Horsefly. A huge thank you to all those that supported the event, and the hard-working volunteers who made it happen.
