JERICO SPRINGS POKER RUN – Wayne Sprenkle, Joplin, brings friends back to the community each year where his grandparents lived and his parents still do. Twenty-five to thirty bikers “from all over” made the poker run. There was one slight mishap when rain-washed gravel caused a bike to go off the road, which was not a problem until the bike encountered a log which the rain had washed into the ditch. One lady reportedly broke her collar bone, but the couple say they will be back next year, Bernice Sprenkle, Wayne’s mother, said.
