ON Sunday, April 11, 2010 the Wild Pigs MC of Memphis, Tennessee held their 13th
annual poker run. We were blessed by beautiful weather and prepared for what we
hoped would be a successful event for everyone. Our beneficiary this year was P/O
Margaret Taylor of the Memphis Police Department downtown precinct. For those who
are not aware, Margaret has been fighting an ongoing battle with cancer and, even

The poker run route was 68 miles long with stops at the East End Grill on Winchester,
The Recycled Biker on Poplar in Collierville, The Ozone Bar & Grill on Highway 64 in
Oakland, and Hooters Wolfchase.

We set a record for attendance for this poker run at well over 700 riders and were able

Thanks for your generosity and support.
