The 4th annual PIGs poker run will take place Saturday June 1st. Each year their bike run raises money for the Vets, and in years past has been able to raise money to buy a new van to take Vets to their check ups or other clinical visits that they might not otherwise make it to.

This year the route is a little different. Talking to Jim this year, he explains that because of the construction on Tower Ave they will begin at the Bong Heritage Center. Resistration begins at 10 am and the run will start at noon. The cost is $10 for single bikes and $15 for couples.

If you would like to visit the Bong Heritage Center that morning they are opening for free for this run, but welcome any donations if you can afford it. The honor guard will send off the ride again this year.

There will be free water, pop, & coffee for the start of the ride.

First stop Iron river bowling alley & pizza parlor will have slices of pizza for sale at discount price. It’s a 45 mile ride. Gas up if need it.!!! 60 miles later a stop at the Decoy inn, then 36 miles through beautiful delta Drummond area. 25 miles after that is the Roadhouse bar That’s a 25 mile ride. There will be a place to gas up again if needed and have some fun with games for men and the girls. You willl have a chance to win some prizes, money or a $50 gift certificate to Absolute Body Art.

The last part is a 20 mile ride to finish at the Log cabin bar. The PIGs will feature some door prizes and food. We also have rooms at a discount rate 50.00 at the Superior Bayfront inn. The pool is staying open just for the adult riders.

Its a day for the Veterans to be enjoyed by the riders to raise money for all they have sacrificed says Jim, if you would like to join them, you don’t need a bike. Click here for more info.
