What is it?-"Get Rev'd up for CF" is a motorcycle poker run to benefit Cystic Fibrosis.
For the second year in a row this ride takes place locally with many local participants.
Last year we had over a hundred people and together we raised $9,000.00.
We have chosen Cystic Fibrosis as our charity to help a local woman, Kristine Tracey,
find a cure for this life threatening disease.


Who is behind this?-
Our committee members are:
Ronald Burns, Kristine Tracey, Sean Farrell, Daniel Burns, Cate Zakens, Chris Zakens,
Stephen Deitz, Eric Burns and Megan Tracey.


Where does the money go? - All proceeds go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis
Northeastern NY Chapter. We have an account set up at the Ravena Branch of the
National Bank of Coxsackie under the name RU4CF.


Who can participate? - Anyone!!! If you have a road bike you can do the poker run
through the gorgeous Catskill Mountains and come back to Joralemon Park for a beef and
clam roast. If you have an ATV, they are doing a separate ride through Coeymans Hollow.
And, if you just have your own two feet, come join us for food, drink and a great band-

Wylder, "The rock & roll party band!!!"!

What is A Poker Run?

A Poker Run is an organized motorcycle event where riders travel over a prescribed course and at
designated stopping points and select a poker card.  At the end of the run, the person or persons with
the best poker hand or hands, wins the prize they have been playing for.  Poker Runs usually require
an entry form to be filled out and a fee to enter.  . The rules for Poker Runs vary depending on the event.

We use the standard 5 card hand on all our rides.  All cards in poker are ranked, or valued,
in the following order. From lowest to highest in each suite: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack,
Queen, King and Ace.   I have listed the lowest hand to the highest hand below.

High Card: In a poker hand with no winning combinations of cards, the high card wins.
                That card is determined by the ranking above.

One Pair: Two cards of the same value with three extra cards that do not combine in
               any desirable way.

Two Pair: Two pairs of cards with the same value each pair having a different value.
               One extra card is present.

Three of a Kind: Three cards of the same value with the remaining two cards not
                         combining in any desirable way.

Straight: Five cards of sequential value and differing "suits"(spades, clubs, hearts or diamonds).

Flush: Five cards of the same suit that are not all sequential.

Full House: Three cards of one value, and two cards of another value,
                 sometimes called a "full boat".

Four of a Kind: Four cards of the same value with one extra card present.

Straight Flush: Five sequential cards of the same suit.

Royal Flush: A Straight Flush that consists of the five highest value cards, 10, Jack,
                  Queen, King and Ace.

Each level of value beats all levels below it. For instance, even the lowest Three of a
Kind (Twos) will beat the highest Two Pair (Aces and Kings). If two players have the
same type of hand, the player with the higher value cards wins the hand. For instance,
the player with three Jacks beats the player with three Eights. Extra cards only matter
if two players have otherwise identical hands. For instance, if two players each have
Two Pair consisting of Tens and Fours, the player with the higher value extra card wins the hand..
