Motorcyclist Adam Fuller of Hopkinsville said that he enjoyed the daylong outing. “We went on a good, long, fun ride and got sunburned. We started at the Western Kentucky State Fairgrounds, passed through Granville, Madisonville, Princeton, and now we are here. It’s great to see this many people involved. When you see a big long line of bikes, it shows a lot of support.”
Moore said, “The best part is seeing a great response from people. It’s great to look out and see maybe 50 bikes, then maybe 150, then look out and see them everywhere.” He estimated over 400 motorcyclists and other participants joined the Poker Run.
2007 marked the fifth year the Eagles sponsored the annual poker run named in honor of former beneficiary Lexi Sabatino. The Eagles also hold the event in memory of Ryan Brown.
Moore said that Jim Watson of Hopkinsville won an $18,000 2007 Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic motorcycle. The Eagles bought the bike and sold lots for $20 each.
