Haliburton Forest’s annual Poker Run was held on February 6th, with an ideal high temperature of -6 degrees and fantastic trail conditions.
Snowmobile riders visited five stations collecting a coloured chit at each one, as well as enjoying pancakes and hot chocolate along the way. These chits were then turned in to receive five playing cards to make the best poker hand.
The winning hand was a straight flush dealt to Arlene Killam of Burlington. Congratulations Arlene on winning a brand new ski-doo 600 ACE!
We are also very pleased to report that $7000 was raised for our local Fire Department. A big thanks to the 340 participants in making this charitable fund-raising event a huge success!
