The Robson Valley Back Country Horsemen of B.C. hosted their 6th annual poker ride last Saturday.

The B.C. wide society includes about 900 members.

The funds from the registration are used to improve trail access, mapping of existing trails, building new ones for riders, hikers and bikers, maintaining (clearing and brushing) and preserving existing trails.

The 7-8 km ride had a designated trail with entry and exit points and stations along the way where the participants secured the cards for the poker hand.

First prize was won by Dan Powell, second prize was won by Shalia Keith, while Dawn Hickerty took home third prize. Constance Rauter won the worst hand prize.
