{mosimage}The term “brotherhood” is not used lightly in certain circles. It is a bond that is forged not from birth, but from a shared experience; through blood, sweat, and yes, tears. In Cumberland County, that word is particularly sacred to the members of the Special Forces Regiment, and in this case to a band of brothers who take their passion on the road.
     The Special Forces Brotherhood is a motorcycle club that is open only to men who have donned the Green Beret and worn the tab. They ride American motorcycles and throughout the year conduct a number of rides.
     On Saturday, April 11, the brotherhood will sponsor its annual Spring Poker Run. This year, the funds raised will be used to construct a 3rd Special Forces Group Memorial Walk.
     The event kicks-off at noon at M & M Leather on Bragg Boulevard. The first bike out is at 1 p.m.    Throughout the afternoon, the riders will stop at many of the area’s favorite watering holes to receive another card for their hand. Stops along the way include Aviator’s Grill & Pub, Charlie Mikes and Louies Sports Pub. The ride will end at Poindexter’s Saloon, where participants will be treated to free food and live music featuring Abandon Solatude and The New Machine.
     Registration is $10 per bike, with a $5 fee for additional riders. There will also be a 50/0 drawing, raffle and door prizes.
