DATE: Saturday, October 3rd
WHERE: KRPUA - Knik River Public Use Area (AKA Jim Creek)
TIME: Depart the parking lot by 10am
This will be our 2nd annual Outdoorsdirectory ATV poker run! Last year we had about 100 riders and 70+ played the poker hand which was a "split the pot". The $10 buy in awarded over $350 to both the high and low hand winners for the day!
This is very much a family event. The poker aspect is completely voluntary. Feel free to come and ride free of charge.
We will have a rough map of the area with the checkpoints marked along with time slots that they will be open. A longer break for lunch will be scheduled at the half way point (by Wolf point). We will be making cooking fires and several folks usually bring grills to put over the fires so bring hot dogs, hamburgers, steak or whatever. A hot meal on the trail is a great thing!
Remember that proper gear is up to the individual riders/families. There will be water crossings and the possibility of getting stuck. While there will be many people to help, please be prepared. Appropriate clothing and gear is a necessity! Helmets are strongly encouraged.
If you want to play the poker hand, there will be a $10 buy in per hand (cash only!). We will have 4 checkpoints for cards along the route which will be from the main pavillion parking lot out to the large meadows just short of Wolf point and back. The 5th and final card will be drawn back at the parking lot. The winning hands will then be determined and jackpots awarded on the spot.The way we did this last year was to have each checkpoint open for about 45 minutes and then folks could ride as they choose to the next checkpoint. At the checkpoint, see one of the volunteers who is doing the card draws. Give them your name and draw a card from the deck. The value of the card is then written down next to your name in the scorebook and the card is placed back in the deck.
Feel free to post questions/concerns and one of the organizers will answer as quick as we can.
Hope to see you there!!
