Blackmer Lodge of Mount Gilead is getting set for this weekend’s inaugural run of the “Uwharrie Mountain Rumble”.
Organizers hope to make this an annual motorcycle ‘poker run’, meaning riders will participate in a friendly competition, stopping at various checkpoints, drawing a card at each, and hoping to have the best hand at the conclusion of the ride.
In this case, there will be five stops on a route that leaves the lodge in Mount Gilead Saturday at noon, rides up Hwy. 109 through Eldorado to Asheboro and the Pisgah Covered Bridge, and concludes at the Denson’s Creek Recreation Complex in Troy.
Information and registration for the Uwharrie Mountain Rumble are available from Ben Wallace at 910-572-7678. Proceeds will support the charitable projects of Blackmer Lodge No. 127 A.F. & A.M.
