Some of the Daubenmier's, Uncle Butch, Jason and Jason's Dad Bill

Shaved heads were everywhere you looked at the grand finale of the 2013 Poker Run for Life Experiences at Ruckus in Morrisville, NC.  Motorcycle riders enjoyed a beautiful sunny day riding from one destination to another and concluding their Poker Run ride at Ruckus in Morrisville.
