Poker Run for Women's Crisis Center Fundraiser
Gil and I recently participated in the poker run in Camden to raise funds for the local Women's Crisis Center. The ride started at Sandy Beach on the Ouachita River just on the edge of town. There were 15 other motorcycles riding that day. That morning was a beautiful, cool fall day. We rode out of town through Holly Springs to Smackover and then on to Arkadelphia, then to Gurdon and Prescott and back to Camden through Chidester. We stopped in Chidester long enough to greet friends at the Fall Festival there and partake of home cooking for our lunch. The ride ended at Coleman Stadium about noon. The sun was hot by then and the temperature was about 91 degrees. It was a nice morning for a trike ride and a good afternoon for a nap. Retirement is wonderful!
