2015 Sierra Buttes Tour & Poker Run

Sierra Buttes Tour & Poker Run

This year’s Poker Run, on August 18th,  proved to be another hit with 16-beautiful law abiding cars: no accidents, no tickets, no twisted ankles. We had beautiful weather, some fantastic cars, and gorgeous scenery thru the Sierra Buttes. This year it seemed the honey- chipotle ribs proved to be the popular choice!  
The years winner of best poker hand went to James Russell holding a Full House.
 
Looking forward to next year!!
