“It is essentially a motorcycle rally but with poker mixed in. Each stop on the designated route will have a person with a deck of cards. Each rider cuts a card and said card is written on a paper, and at the end, based on a points system (aces low), a winner is determined.”

Riders have five stops, including the starting point, to draw their five cards.

In conjunction the rally, there will be barbecues for the public for both dinner (11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and supper (starting at 3 p.m.). An ongoing 50/50 will also be happening that day.

There will also be a kidsè pedal bike rally. Children can bring their decorated bicycles and ride around town at no cost and receive a free hotdog.

Registration for the poker rally begins at 12:30 p.m. at the Ed Elder Memorial Building located on the museum grounds along 1st Street East. Cost for riding is $20 with a meal included.

A meal for the public will be available for $10.
