This year our Annual Halloween ride will be held once again at Lake Carl Blackwell in Stillwater, OK and this year we are going to shake things up a bit and make it a Poker Ride!

The virus did not cooperate with our original Poker Ride plans in April, so we have moved the date and the prizes to our Halloween Ride event!  We have a GORGEOUS, 25th Anniversary Belt Buckle that will be given away as the top poker hand prize!  

Poker hands will be $10 for the first hand and $5 for each additional hand you wish to purchase.  We will have more details soon on how you will be able to collect the cards for your Poker Hand, as well as options for non-riders, so keep watching your newsletter and this website for more info!

We will be using several decks of cards to play, so we will have a list posted at the pavilion of the Card Rankings with an example of each.  This list will be the Official Rules for how the winner is determined.  There is no limit to the number of hands you may buy other than running out of cards.  In the event of a Tie, the two (or more) people with the winning hand will have a tie-breaker one card draw.  The highest card, ranked Ace high to 2 low, will be the winner.  We will announce the winners at dinner

 Dinner will start at 6:00 pm under the pavilion and we will be having a chili cook-off!  Enter the contest or bring the sides to go with it!  We will need Fritos, sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped onions, cornbread and whatever fixin’s you like to eat with your chili. And of course, we will need desserts as well!  We will select the judges on Saturday and allow them to taste each contestant’s chili anonymously from a sample cup.  After the judges have voted, we will a have a very special prize for the chili cook-off winner!

In addition, there will also be a pumpkin decorating contest for our dinner table center pieces! Carve your favorite pumpkin design, paint and bedazzle your pumpkin, or dress it up in a festive costume!  However, you decide to decorate your pumpkin, we would love to have you show it off at dinner. There will be prizes for the best pumpkins!

After Dark we will have campsite Trick-or-Treat!  You may dress up in your favorite costume, or come as you are.  All ages are welcome to join in on the fun! 

(ALL ELECTRIC/WATER SITES AND HORSE PENS IN HUNTS MEADOW ARE SOLD OUT!!!)  We still have plenty of primitive camp sites available.  Overflow camping will be at Scissortail.  (Call the LCB office to make reservations at Scissortail.)  If you camp at Scissortail you will need to drive/ride over to Hunts Meadow for the activities.  If you would like to be put on the waiting list for a campsite in Hunts Meadow in case a reservation is cancelled, please send an email to and let us know!
