|101 N. Main Marble Rock, Iowa
|****IMPORTANT****: For all you First Timers Riding on this Poker Run Here is how it works.****
#1. Plan what route you are going to take, consider if it would be better to go to that specific location in the
morning or in the afternoon unlike other poker/funruns we don't require you to come all the way to Marble Rock
to sign up and then travel all the way back to where you live to stamp a card at a poker run stop
#2. Ride to your first stop, At all these poker stops and dealers there is a laminated flyer of this event with small
4x3 stamp cards underneath it, grab one have it stamped and use that card for the remaining stops.
**FOR THIS RIDE IN 2015 GET YOUR MAPS/STAMPCARDS AT THE V.F.W. IN CLEAR LAKE OR WHITETAILS **
#3. Bring your stamp card, one for each rider even if your a passenger and your entryfee/donation to Whitetails
for a chance for the best Poker hand to win some big money
#4. After you are done riding to your stops whether it was allot of stops or a few come to Whitetails Bar and Grill
in Marble Rock and show your card in the back room and sign up for free prizes and your meal, donation,and
Bikers that made it to all stops get an extra poker card to help make the best 5 cards and to possibly
win prize money !!!
If by chance there is no more stamp cards at that first location have those poker stop people stamp and or
sign any piece of paper for you and just grab a card on the next stop and show both items of paper you have
stamped at the sign up at Whitetails

|RULES FOR WHITETAILS CHARITY POKER RUNS
|We have had Charity Poker Runs for the last 7 years, Poker Runs are an organized
event for local motorcycle ethusiast of all types We ride around Northern Iowa or
other communites and stop at supporter businesses or establishments and get a
stamp on a card then meet at Whitetails or other home base and draw for best poker
hand and raise money for a charity.
Our first Poker Run was for the American Diabetes Fund back in May of 2009 we had
a bike show, casino games, blessing of the bikes, and a tastey supper we raised
around $500 for the charity
|Our 2nd Run in May of 2010, was for the American Cancer Society, we expanded
our stops and got more people involved using radio for advertisement and went to
other abate and rally events and passed out flyers before our ride. We had the same
style of events and a meal with a blessing of the bikes etc.. which turned out to be a
great success 80+ bikes attended and we raised $700
|The 3rd one was on June 11 2011 but this time it was little different, shortly after the
2nd Poker Run back on July 3rd 2010 my wife and i got hit by a car on a saturday
morning going to meet some friends and head to a local rally. i got road rash and a
sprain ankle but my wife got both bones shattered below her right knee, she still is
affected by it today She had to deal with infection and weak mended bones and open
wounds. We have been thru hell but it wasn't going to prevent me from having a
Poker Run that year
While i was planning it... I wanted it to be bigger than ever i involved all the
dealerships that sell motorcycles, had more stops involved such as a winery and
bowling alley. But this time there will be 2 charities one is for the Mended Hearts
which is associated with the American Heart Foundation and the other i created
called "THAT'S M.I.N.E. DONATION" which stands for Motorcyclists. In. Need.
Everyday. this will help bikers who got hurt this year. We will buy gift cards from
Hy-vee Grocery Store and/or Wal-mart an give to hurt fellow motorcyclist. These
cards can buy bandages, medicines, pharmacy items, gas, or groceries all in one
place. Which comes in handy when your wounded and off of work and need help with
everyday activities or put some food on the table for your family.
My wife and I felt hardship and we feel the less painful it is not worrying about money
the sooner you will recover from your accident
This Run we had 120+ bikers and raised over $1000 we found potential candidates
who were hurt and needed some assistance in the area
|Please help attend and continue to support our Poker Runs So we can contribute to
motorcyclist who got hurt this year and future years to come AND I HOPE IN THE
FUTURE TO MAKE AN AWARENESS COMMERCIAL FOR MOTORCYCLE SAFETY ON
THE DANGEROUS ROADS OF TODAY.
I hope other bikers read this and use "a simliar charity" to help other biker comrades in
their area where they ride.
|Our 4th Poker Run was June 02, 2012 was another record breaker bike attendance it
was for our own charity M.I.N.E. and our Local Hospice. My wife's mother recently
passed away in hospice and was grateful for all their help so i and my wife presented a
check to our Local Hospice in Mason City to do as they will with it as long it was for
someone who had little money and needed some special care or treatment.
|Another Poker Run was on June 15, 2013 it was for our Charity M.I.N.E. and The Arc
Charities for disabled and challenged people.. This one was a challenge because we
had to deal with Rain and we had a fellow Biker get into an accident during a busy
intersection ... So most of our Monies went to him and his Recovery along with a
generous donation to the ARC....And we plan on having one year after year !!!!
|Our Present Dealerships that help in our
