'Ride for Doubet' to Raise Money for Late Biker's Family

Friends of the late Mike Doubet will be gathering this week to honor the former community member. It seems only fitting, that what organizers hope will be the first annual memorial for the biker enthusiast, will center around a motorcycle poker run.

Those that knew Doubet, also realized that he spent a lot of time driving around, something that also fits quite well with the poker run theme. Mike, a devout Christian, spent much of his free time, not simply wandering the roads, but instead praying for those homes and families he passed by on his travels.

On Saturday, September 8th, many of those gathering to honor Doubet will be doing the same thing.

Signup will begin at 12:30 p.m. at Johnson Park in Memphis with lunch provided for the participants. At 1 p.m. riders and motorists will depart from Memphis and loop around to Kirksville, Edina, Lewistown and Kahoka before concluding in Memphis. Participants will receive a playing card for each stop made, and the winner will be decided by the best resulting five-card poker hand. Cost is $10 to participate, with additional hands available for $5.

A free-will offering supper will be held at Johnson Park at 6 p.m. and is open to all. A benefit auction will follow at 7 p.m. featuring a number of items donated by area merchants and family friends. All proceeds for the entire event will go to Mike's family, his wife Pam Doubet and their two sons, Zach and Chris.

A dance will be held in the park following the conclusion of the auction. John Jordan will be donating his services as DJ.

Michael Larry Doubet, passed away March 2, 2012 at the age of 52, following a truck accident near La Plata, Missouri. Mike owned and operated Doubet Pallet & Cycle in Memphis.
