West Coast Challengers attended the 4th annual “Jeff’s Fun Run” (poker run) hosted by a fellow local club, Pickups Limited, Orange County Chapter. Days before the event, when rain was confirmed to be in the forecast, the club members, to their credit, all wanted to go anyway, with some even saying that it would be fun cruising around in the rain — and they were right!

Like last year, the Fun Run began at Ken Grody Ford in Buena Park. After checking in and staging, West Coast Challengers was the first group to roll out and lead the participants to various automotive hot spots in and around Orange County. This years’ automotive hot spots on the route were Chopit Kustoms, C.W. Moss, Reid’s Rod Parts, Kugel Komponents, Lime Works and Moon Equipment Company, and finally ending at the famous Bob’s Big Boy in Downey, CA.

This year, Larry, Leo and Adrian all managed to draw a pair of aces which were the best poker hands the club could muster. The winning hand was a club flush, with several other people having three of a kind, so the poker hands this year were pretty good.

Of course, being at Bob’s Big Boy in Downey is always a pleasure and the club members split into three groups so not to overwhelm the restaurant. After lunch, we all headed outside for the presentation for the best poker hand of the day and the 50/50 drawing.

The 50/50 drawing this year rose to a nice $700.00, and like last year, a member of Pickups Limited happen to be holding the winning ticket, and just like last year, he was generous enough to throw half of it back in for a second chance drawing — which he then again won, 500 ticket numbers apart! His lucky day to be certain. Stefanie’s daughter was the official ticket drawer.

The club members all had a great time on the Fun Run and the rain was never heavy and only lasted an hour or so before giving away to sunshine and cloudy skies making for an enjoyable ending to the cruise.

Pictures of the event can be found in our club photo gallery.

  1. Thanks for such a great write up about Jeff’s Fun Run. You MOPAR guys are definitely gamers and showing up in the rain proved it. For those interested, we are doing a Re-Run on February 25th which will be a no-cost cruise. More details to follow soon.
    Thanks again for supporting our event.
