About 100 motorbikes are expected to take part in a poker run tomorrow to raise money for Echuca-Moama Search and Rescue.
Organised by Wild Echidna Tours, an Echuca motorcycle social club, the poker run will leave at 1.30pm from Apex Park and cover about 200km, including stops at Lockington, Rochester, Kyabram and Tongala.
Echuca-Moama Search and Rescue volunteer Steve Huntley said the organisation was self-funded and money raised would go towards updating equipment.
‘‘It will help us to provide a 100 per cent service to the community,’’ he said.
Mr Huntley, who will take part in the ride, said cards would be dealt and raffles held at each stop, followed by a presentation and auction at the Bridge Hotel.
‘‘Everyone is welcome. Even if they can’t make the poker run, we encourage people to come to the Bridge afterwards,’’ he said.
‘‘It should be a really good, fun day.’’
Registration for the poker run opens at 11.30am.
Entry to the Bridge Hotel is $30 which includes dinner and live music.
