A horseback and wagon poker rally held Oct. 4 as a fundraiser for Rimbey Sleigh, Wagon and Saddle Club was well attended and provided participants with a great outing during a beautiful fall day.

Club president Denise McFarlane said 72 participants took part in the poker rally.

Registration took place from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Rimbey Ag grounds. The cost was $5 to register and each additional hand cost $5. There was a 50/50 payout to the top four poker hands.

Each participant could choose to go on one of two rides. Trail one was wagon friendly and took about two yours and trail two was not less suitable for wagons and took about four hours. Both rides started and ended at the Rimbey Ag grounds.

“We had a nice turnout and it was a beautiful day,” said McFarlane, adding that the community was supportive of the event.

“We could never pull this off without that support,” she said.

The ride gave everyone an opportunity to check out the new Agrim Centre in Rimbey, she noted.
