Offroad Poker Trail Run II (Deuces) – July 18th

The offroad poker run is a meant to be a group trail run to allow those without GPS or other gear to participate. This also means that participants can help each other in case of an emergency. However some of you more experienced off roaders would most likely want to run on your own we have that option. This is NOT a competition but a fun run with a game attached to it. There will be a crew going ahead, setting up a flag and a check points so you know where grab your next playing card. Simple as that.

Starting point:
Pilot Travel Center
465 Pilot Rd
Fernley, NV 89408

Sparks NV:
BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse
425 Sparks Blvd
Sparks, NV 89434

The $50 costs cover the following:
- $15 - Poker buy-in
- $30 - Decals (number of your choice as shown below)
- - - Decals do not harm your paint and are a pick and stick product. Test to 189 MPH and stayed on.
- $5 - PayPal Fee

The poker run trail game:

Players: A team consists of the participants riding in a single rig. A team can consist of a single driver, or as many passengers vehicle can legally hold. We encourage this as a family or couples event as the trails are as smooth as trails can get and is meant to be a fun outing.

Objective: This is a 5 card game with deuce’s being wild this time. Participants can stay in a group or if they want to do their own thing can drive ahead to the check points to pick up the next playing card. Check points will be noted by a flag so you know you to jump out and grab a playing card.

How to Play: At the start of the event, teams are given a packet with GPS locations (street addresses and times checkpoints are open). At each checkpoint teams will be able to choose their playing card.

Distance covered: The group will cover 140 miles off offroad trails and no pavement till the drive to the restaurant.

NOTES: This is not a time and distance rally or the fastest car wins event. This is a meant to be a fun trail event with a “game” added to it to make it different. Goal of the outing is to be fun and social not a race!

There is no “civilized” restroom on this run so plan accordingly.

How to Win: This Poker Run is about the experiences and the adventure, but the prizes at the end are not bad either ;-). The winning team is the one with the best hand at the end at the lunch stop. Payouts are given to the teams with the top three hands.

Payout: First place receives 70%, second place receives 20%, and third place receives 10%. The more participants there are, the bigger the pot will be. All fees collected go to the event as noted below.

Costs: $30 for decal with number of your choice, $15 poker buy in, $5 for maps and PayPal collection fee (GRR)

Lunch: BJ Brewery. Chain restaurant but best / closest option for the group.

Maps: GPS map files will be sent to those who register for the event. Printed maps will be made for those who don't have a GPS or GPS app.

Weather: If the weather turns south on us, a full refund will be given a week prior to the event. After that partial refunds will be give as decals will have been printed. They will be mailed to you if canceled and a new date selected to do the run.
