Kickin’ things off... PP Poker Run

Saturday morning’s roar, kicking off Peanut Proud activities and National Peanut Month, came from motorcycles as riders started their engines for the Peanut Proud Poker Run.

Over 40 Peanut Proud Poker Run bikers departed Court Square Saturday for “a 65-mile ride through some of Georgia’s most beautiful countryside.”

The first card draw was at the registration tent. The second card draw was at the ICON Mural at Cotton Hall in Colquitt. From there they departed for Arlington for the third card draw at Bank of Early and to Kolomoki State Park for the fourth draw at the museum. The final draw was at 4th Out on Court Square.
