CORK announces kick-off poker race

The newly formed, non-profit organization Combined Off-Road Riders of Kauai announced its kick-off membership drive poker run at Moloa’a. The event will be held on Sunday, April 1, and run on private land in the Moloa’a Hills.

There will be separate divisions (A, B and C levels) offered for keiki and adult dirt bike, 4-wheeler (ATVs) and mountain bicycle riders.

“We are going to be allowed to use one of the most-beautiful areas of our island for one day only, so don’t miss this fantastic opportunity,” CORK president Danny Lepley said in a release. “This was only possible by continuing cooperation between CORK and Hawaiian Homelands Land Development, making this event available to our riders and ‘ohana, as well as helping us fulfill the mission of CORK.”

CORK was formed for the purpose of combining all off-road riders into a united strength, seeking to obtain legal riding areas on Kaua‘i.

The run will be open members only. Membership is $30 per year for adults, $10 for keiki 16 years old and younger and non-riders.

This membership will apply to all future 2007 poker runs.

The cost of the race will be $10 for adults 16 years old and older and $5 for keiki.

Early sign-up forms will be available prior to the Poker Run at Cycle City/Two Wheels, Suzuki Kauai, North Shore Motorcycles, S&S Speed Shop and the Computer Hospital.

Registration/insurance waivers must be signed prior to participation.

Gates will open at 7:30 a.m., with the mandatory riders meeting at 9:45 a.m. The run will begin promptly at 10 a.m.

There will be one gas check. Hospitality and refreshments will be available to all participants following the Poker Run.
