Lawride Poker Run a Big Success!!
The first CCPOBF Lawride Poker Run, held on Saturday, August 1st, was an extremely successful event. All funds raised are to assist the Clackamas County Peace Officers Benevolent Foundation provide support to injured Clackamas County Deputy Sheriff Robby Nashif. Deputy Nashif, who is a motorcycle officer, was struck by a car while on his department motorcycle in Oregon City.
A co-worker, Deputy Troy Gilmore, organized the Lawride. He felt that it would be a great way to raise funds for a fellow motorcycle enthusiast. The route wound about 130 miles through scenic Clackamas County, from Sandy and through Estacada, Colton, Molalla, Canby, Wilsonville and into Tualatin. The Lawride started at Extreme Products in Clackamas and ended at Bushwhackers Restaurant in Tualatin. Both donated to the event as well. Other sponsors included LEEDS, Wild Hare, Firehouse, Oregon Boy Trucking, Benchmade, Napa, Les Schwab, and Latus HD.
Special thanks to the Spartan Motorcycle Club for a huge turn out to support this worthy cause! Bottom line - over $1000 was raised during this event. A great job to all, especially to Troy Gilmore for coming up with the idea and putting it all together!
