It’s Poker Run time again in Sumpter!
Saturday, February 16th, 2013 from 7:00 am to 2:30 pm
The Poker Run will be held regardless of the weather - it will not be cancelled!
This year, the Sumpter Snowmobile Club will be adding a little extra fun….
The 1st Annual Sumpter Outhouse Races in downtown Sumpter – across from the Gold Post. The races will be held between 2:30 and 3:00 pm. All outhouses must be registered and inspected before the races. See the rules and get more information here.
The Sumpter Valley Blue Mountain Snowmobile Club held a potluck and meeting this past weekend to make final plans for the poker run. See the photos of the meeting below…….
This year, there will be 6 poker run stations in town, and two stations out on the trail. However, you can only draw 7 cards, which means you will need to choose which poker run stations you would like to visit. This year’s poker run stations are:
The Stage Stop Gas Station, The Gold Post, The Depot Inn, The Elkhorn, The Sumpter Museum, Homestead Realty, Inc. and two stations on the trail.
Once you have drawn 7 cards, you will need to turn your ticket in by 2:30 pm at the Sumpter Community Schoolhouse. Those with the best poker hands win the money……
The total purse for the Poker Run is $3,000.00 guaranteed!
You are not required to go out on the trail in order to participate in the poker run. In fact, you are not required to even ride or own a snowmobile in order to join the fun!
There will also be a Winter Bazaar and Rummage Sale at the Sumpter Municipal Museum from 9 am – 4 pm. Vendors are by donation only…..some table space is still available if you hurry! To reserves space call 541-894-2355.
Friends of Sumpter Valley Community will be holding a baked goods sale on Friday, February 15th from 6-8 pm during advance poker run ticket sales at the Sumpter Community Schoolhouse – 475 N. Mill St. (just above the Stage Stop Gas Station)
On Saturday, the FSVC will also be selling breakfast burritos from 7-10 am at the Sumpter Community Schoolhouse.
Come up to Sumpter and join the fun!
