Default Poker Run 3-08-08

It looks like everybody had a good time at the poker run over the weekend. Perfect trails and great temps made for one of the best riding days of the season yet! The trail stop was steady all day with people going in-out (and people returning because they forgot to get their sheet stamped ).

Once again all 47 that participated received some sort of prize. I had a prior commitment, so missed the majority of the prize awards, and will see if I can get the names of those who won the top prizes.

We added a another new twist to this run, the digital scavenger hunt. For an extra $5, participants were given a list of 20 items to find, and take a photograph of. It was rather amazing what people did to get pics of all the items, either making them or improvising to get that last shot. Our guest groomer Toddmeister took the top prize in that drawing. He must have spent enough time on the trails this year to know exactly where everything is at! Many seemed to enjoy this new addition, and I think that you will see it return again next year.

If anyone has a story or pictures of the poker run, please post them up for all to enjoy. I am currently at work, and will download my pictures when I get home tonight. Thanks again for all that made the trip up. Make sure you try to squeeze one or 2 more trips in before April!

Here is a pic of a shoe tree, also one of the items on the list

This one is located on the shore of Brevort Lake, on a forest road. There are more of these shoe trees, at different locations on the trail system.

Here is another of Skidoodude04. Had to grab a quick rest at the trail stop before heading out to get most of the stamps, AFTER 4pm! Thats what you get for going all the way to Curtis to check out new sleds during poker run!

The next pic is (Sorry I forgot your name) who traveled quite a distance to have his first ride on the straits trails. A perfect day for sure!

The guy with the #20 cat was Alan. Him and his neighbor were from Muncie, IN and he was checking out the Poker Run for a school project. Him and his Neighbor (Alex) were great to talk with. They had one of their cats break down and we towed them up to the next road so they could trailer it back to the motel. We met up with them that night at the VI... it was a great meeting you guys this weekend Alan. We'll have to make another trip out of it next season!
