Waxenfelter ride scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15

The Second Annual Grady Waxenfelter Memorial Poker Ride and Drive will be held August 15 to honor Waxenfelter's memory.

Waxenfelter, who was a motorcycle and car enthusiast and devoted family man, was shot to death at Highway 224 and Amisigger Road on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, as he was performing his duty as Clackamas County Weighmaster.

"Grady's family and the community suffered a great loss that day," event organizers said. Friends and family organize this annual event in Waxenfelter's name to "honor a man who gave so much to his family and community."

The ride is for motorcycles, classic and custom cars and trucks.

Staging begins at Latus Motors in Gladstone, 870 E. Berkely St., at 9 a.m. with the last bike out at 10 a.m.. The ride will have four designated stops to draw a poker card with the ride ending at The Viewpoint, 20189 S Springwater Road, Estacada.

There is $10 entry fee for the two-and-a-half hour, 93 mile ride and a free lunch will be provided by The Viewpoint. Donations will be accepted and the family will donate the proceeds to the "Change for a Dollar" charity. You can pre-register for the ride at www.gradyride.com.
