This event is sponsored and supported by various area merchants. This event is NOT A RACE! Participants walk or bike ride at their own pace, to checkpoints throughout the course where they pick up a playing card. At the end of the event, each poker hand is tallied and the person with the best hand in each category receives a prize.
Raffle prizes will be available after 10:00 AM. At 11:00 AM the winners of the best hands in all events will be announced along with the winner of the bike and the 50/50 drawing.
You must return by 11:00 A.M. for your poker hand to be eligible.
