Hundreds enjoy poker run pig roast in Dartmouth

DARTMOUTH &8212 For a change, it did not rain Sunday on Dartmouth Building Supply's annual poker run and pig roast that benefits cystic fibrosis.

Rain has been an unwelcomed visitor at four of the six previous poker runs and roasts held at DBS' lumber yard on Reed Road. Last year, the event was a complete washout. And while Sunday was not sunny, it did not rain. But, Geary said, the morning's overcast skies and the threat of showers kept the number of motorcycle riders down. "A lot of people don't like riding in the rain," he said. "I just wish it had been sunny at 6:30 when people wake up." About 300 motorcycles and between 100 and 200 other vehicles made the 90-mile poker run from DBS to Plymouth Rock and back again. "Considering the weather, we had a really good turnout," Geary said.

He was grateful for the turnout, explaining they were also competing against several other poker runs in the region and the air show at Quonset Point in Rhode Island.
