|Description||2013 MCDS Poker Run- July 13, 2013
This year, riders can start at either Maggie Maes in Salina, KS or Dans Cycle in Hesston, KS. Each route will cover over 100 miles and stop at MCDS in McPherson before ending in the Marquette City Park.
Registration to ride in the Poker Run includes an event t-shirt (first come, first served) and a poker hand, which can be entered at the final stop for a chance to win a cash prize. Cost is $25 for a single rider and $15 additional for a passenger. Registration begins at both starting points at 8 am with the first bike out by 8:30 am.
Along the route, riders will stop at five locations, collecting playing cards in order to build the best, or worst, five-card hand. All poker hands for registered riders and their registered passengers (if over 18 years old) will include an additional card to help increase the chances of building the best five-card hand. A sixth card cannot be used or included in the Poker Hand entered for the cash prizes. Riders may choose to purchase extra hands (5 cards + additional 6th card) for $5.
Once at the park, riders will be able to enter the five-card hand they built for a chance to win a cash prize. The rider with the best hand will win $500 and $250 will be awarded to the rider with the worst hand.
Vendors of various local goods and services will also be invited to set up booths for riders to visit at the Marquette City Park.
