Anzac Day bikers come to the party

WHILE some will spend Anzac Day playing two-up and watching the traditional Collingwood-Essendon AFL clash, Ettamogah-based motorcycle club Party Unlimited is gearing up for its 18th annual poker run.

Its members will ride to three secret locations to raise money for Legacy.

“We have raised just over $77,000 since the event started,” club secretary Craig Hastings said.

He is aiming for $10,000 after raising more than $8000 last year.

He also hoped the number of riders would increase on the usual 240 who support the cause.

“Anzac Day is a good day to do something for the cause,” he said.

Legacy helps families of service people who have died or were injured in war.

Mr Hastings said he expected the support shown over the years to continue.

“Even when it’s wet people turn up and donate,” he said.

“The club decided to pursue the cause years ago and we will continue with that legacy.

“It’s a great day for all riders so people should come and enjoy it.”

Anybody wishing to ride should meet the group at Noreuil Park at 10am. The entry fee is $25.
