Elks Annual Veteran’s Poker Run Scheduled for Sep. 12

The Santa Barbara Elks Lodge #613 will host their annual Veteran’s Poker Run Sep. 12, 2015.    

The all day event is open to the public and is expected to have over 60 motorcycle riders. This year, the Elks have opened the event to participants driving cars, too.

To participate, entrants should meet at Stow House Fire Station, 320 N. Los Carnernos, in Goleta. Sign up between 8:30 and 10 a.m. while enjoying coffee and donuts, then pick up a self-guided map and enjoy a three-hour scenic drive.

The run begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. at the SB Elks Lodge at 150 N. Kellogg Ave in Santa Barbara.  

Lunch will be provided and cash prizes for the high and low hands will be awarded at the Elks between 12:30 and 3 p.m.  Music will be provided by DJ Johnny “B” Good.

The annual event helps the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge raise money for their many veterans-in-need programs, including the Veteran’s Clinic and veterans-in-need cash credit cards and bus tokens.

For more information about the veteran’s programs, contact the Loren Mane at 805.637.3416.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
