The Sanford ATV Club is having a Poker Run on July 9th! What is a poker run you ask? It goes like this: Members register at The Depot on Pleasant St., where they purchase one or more hands (blank tally sheets) used to record the poker cards they’ll draw at each stop. The members then take their hand(s) to the first stop where they draw one card for each hand they purchased. Organizers observe the card(s) drawn by the participants, and mark the tally sheet(s) with the appropriate card information, and the members proceeds to the next stop with their tally sheet. After drawing their fifth card at the final stop, they will have an opportunity to purchase additional cards to improve their hands. Members then give their tally sheets to one of the organizers, who will score the sheets and determine the highest hands. Prizes will be given out accordingly. One hand (5 cards) will be $20. Additional hands will be $10 each. There will also be an opportunity to purchase up to two additional cards to replace those in your hand. The best five cards will win. At the final location (Schoolhouse Ice Cream), there will be a party with food and music. Over $1,000 in prizes will be awarded! Rain date is July 16th. Not an ATV Club member? Now is a great time to join!
