The fundraiser for multiple sclerosis is accepting personal watercraft entrants for The Great Australian Poker Run in Sydney, Australia, according to OZPWC. That was great news since that meant raising more money for a great cause. The run takes place December 12th on the Hawksbury River, starting at Wisemans Ferry, heading downstream to hit Checkpoint 1 at Spencer. Participants must ride in single file and a crew will be on hand doing a drive by to pick up cards.
Riders will continue to a private beach located in front of the Broken Bay Sports and Recreation Center, which is also the half way point. A 70 foot Predator Sunseeker will be set up with a band playing. People can enjoy listening to music while eating lunch, provided they bought an entry that included food.
The beach stop includes a landing area and an area to anchor offshore. Toilets, shade, and a netted swimming area will be located along the beach. The plan is to leave Broken Bay in single file by 1pm and the boats will head upriver for another drive by checkpoint located in Spencer. From there, all watercraft will head back to Wisemans Ferry to complete the run.
Del Rio Resort is booked for participants so they can enjoy more live music, buckets of prawns, cheese platters, and bars until 7pm. This group enjoys raising funds for MS, having a great time on their boats, and giving people joy on the water in a family friendly environment.
