The fourth Poker Run, we are Heading back to the original stopping grounds and adding new trails for you to enjoy. As with all poker runs, these are fun social day trips to gt out and get your truck/jeep dirty. This will be a looped route for those with trailer vehicles.
Poker Run 4 (Sail Boats) is on Sunday August 28th and will cover around 158 miles of dirt trails. These trails are a mix of everything the desert throws at you, from smooth sections to slow washouts. Please remember this is NOT a race or competition, so take it easy when on the trail. There are washouts that can snap axles if you're trying to be Robby Gordon. This is a fun run like always and open to any and all off road trucks.
Meet time - 8:00am (Air down ready to go)

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 stud game. 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 150 miles off off road 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.
