Second Annual Halloween Poker Ride

October 22nd - 24th, 2021 

This year we will have our Second Annual Halloween Poker Ride at Lake Carl Blackwell in Stillwater, OK!  This ride was such a great success last year that we have decided to make it an annual event!  We will have a unique BGTRC Poker Ride Belt Buckle that will be given away as the top poker hand prize!  (Pictures coming soon!  The picture above is last year's buckle.) As well as several other fabulous prizes for Low hand, Second High Hand, and more.  Poker hands will be $10 for the first hand and $5 for each additional hand you wish to purchase.  We will have buckets set out on the trail with a different color “poker chip” in each one.  Collect one of each color and bring them back to camp for your hand.  (There will be options for non-riders to pick up poker chips in camp as well.)

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 (or running out of money to buy more cards!)  We will announce the winners at dinner.

 Dinner will start at 6:00 pm under the pavilion and we will once again have our chili cook-off contest with great prizes for 1st through 3rd place!  Enter the contest or bring the sides to go with it!  We will need Fritos, sour cream, chopped onions, cornbread and whatever fixin’s and side dishes 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 have a very special prize for the winners!

In addition, the Famous Pumpkin Decorating Contest is back!  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 more great prizes for the Top Three 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!  Camping Reservations will open up at the May Member Meeting on May 8th!  Be sure to come to the meeting for first choice on a campsite and horse pen!  Online reservations will open up on May 10th.  Save the date and make your plans now to join us!
