anyone returning with at least 5 verified stops is eligible to win.

To play:

Ride Participants will be provided a scorecard at registration.  Ride

Participants have the option to visit each of the 7 official site stops but must

visit at least 5 of stops to have a valid scorecard.  Ride participants will have

official stops, and their scorecard validated by site personnel volunteers.

Scorecards must be the official scorecard, and this must be filled out by the

stop’s personnel, not by the participant.  It is the responsibility of the

participant to check their scorecard before leaving each checkpoint, to

ensure their scorecard is validated.

Ride participants must present their verified scorecard to the dealers at

LuLu’s at the end of the poker run.  The number of verified stops will relate

to how many cards will be dealt.  (one card dealt per validated stop,

example 5 stops = 5 cards, 7 stops = 7 cards). The dealer will deal the

corresponding number of cards, face up.

The winning hand is determined by standard poker rankings. This is an

optional 7 card or minimum 5 card draw format with no wildcards, best 5

cards decide winning hand.  Information will be recorded on the scorecard,

which will be collected for tracking purposes.

In the event of a tie, players will draw a single card from a deck of 52 cards

(high card wins) to determine the winner.

Extra hands:

Extra hands can be purchased by ride participants for $25.00 (one card

dealt per validated stop, example 5 stops = 5 cards, 7 stops = 7 cards). The

extra hands must be purchased when the ride participant’s validated

scorecard is presented at LuLu’s upon the conclusion of the poker run.

Once the ride participant walks away from the dealers’ table, they will no

longer be able to purchase additional hands, except under the walk-in

participants’ price.  Additional hands for walk-in participants are $45.00

each and 5 cards only.
