As the crowd dispersed "good-byes" were said

The Hickmans extend thanks to donors, supporters, volunteer workers, advertisers and property owners at Nobe. Most of all to the riders who have continued to support this annual event and those who participated this year for the first time. Welcome and thank you!

The proceeds from the poker run of $1,152.73 went to "The Danny and Luke Hickman Memorial Scholarship Fund". The fund is an annual $500 award given each year to a Calhoun County High School graduate to be applied toward continuing their education.
