Poker Ride Clearwater BC, July 18, 2015

Camping Registration Form Available for Download

The ATV – BC  Association organizes a POKER RIDE every year at different places in BC, this year it is coming to Clearwater.   The local club, Clearwater ATV Club is assisting the event which will take place on July 18th 2015,  and with special permission from Canfor forest products, it will be held at the old airport up camp 2 road, where camping will be available.

The poker ride begins at the airport and follows a marked trail up into Canfor’s timber management area stopping at some lakes before returning to the airport.  A stop at each checkpoint where riders draw a card to see who has the best poker hand.

Prizes are $ 3000. for first,  a utility trailer for second, and a full years insurance policy for an atv  for third place.  But that is not all, all riders will have a chance at a draw of several random prizes.  Also anyone who buys a 5 card pack will be entered for the HIDDEN HAND draw for a new Can –am Commander four wheeler.  Your hand must match the pre-drawn numbers to win.

We expect people to come and camp ahead of time to partake in some other activities and look around the town.  There is lots to see in Wells Gray Park, the waterfalls park;  River rafting is in full swing this time of year;  there is plenty of great resturants in town to check out;  and there is some local quad trails at hand right where you camp.

The Clearwater Club will guide 2  rides on Thursday and Friday for those coming early, and of course includes any local riders as well.

The Elks Lodge are putting on a special pancake breakfast on Friday morning for all the quad riders.   ($7 to $8)

Friday evening we hope to have an escorted ice-cream ride to top off the day.

The poker ride is Saturday, but after the winners announced and prizes drawn, we will ride to the Legion for a full sit down roast beef supper with all the trimmings. ($15.)

Raffle tickets are being sold for a $ 14,000. ATV;   second prize is a 2000 watt generator, with third prize being a pressure washer.  Tickets are available from Aspen Auto Parts.

With the new regulations requiring the licencing of all off road machines, when applying for insurance from Interior Savings Insurance, they will allow 10% discount if you have a membership of the local ATV club, so it is to your advantage to have a membership, which are available at Aspen Auto Parts in Clearwater.
