To play:

Ride Participants will be provided a score card 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 score card validated by site personnel.

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 score card, 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 $20.00 (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 $40.00 each and 5 cards only.
