Try your luck at Saturday’s snowmobile Poker Run
Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club’s annual Poker Run fundraiser takes place this Saturday, with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Freeman Reservoir Trailhead parking lot, about 10.5 miles north of Craig on Colorado Highway 13.
Snowmobilers head along the path to several stations — open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — and pick up a playing card to form a poker hand. Those with the best results win 25 percent of the total collected with 15 percent for second place and 10 percent for third.
Hands are $10 apiece or $25 for three.
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m. at The O.P. Bar & Grill, 534 E. Victory Way, and plenty of additional door prizes are also up for grabs.
Money raised during the Poker Run goes to the group’s scholarship efforts, last year awarding $1,000 apiece to four local students, the majority of which was raised during the event.
