    Default Updated: July 3rd Poker Run El Paso tx

    Alright time to update this post:

    The event is scheduled for July 3rd (saturday) and will consist of an easy to moderate trail ride (majority on the easy side) and food and drinks afterwards. Prize support is still in the works, however it is coming along.

    -Prize will be handed out for Best Hand and Worst Hand, there will also be raffle tickets available for other smaller prizes.
    -All participants will have to sign a waiver in order to come and play, as even though nothing should happen, there is always the chance, and all parties involved must be protected and absolved of any liabilty.
    -Entry fee is $10.00 and covers the driver. However a hand may be bought for each passenger in the vehicle for $10.00 a piece.

    Times:
    -0830 meet up at Lowes parking lot on montana ave, right off of US 375
    -0900 Move to start point for registration, waiver signing, and safety brief
    -1000 Start Trail Ride
    -1400 End Trail Ride
    -1630 Hand out prizes
    -1900 Pack up and head home

    Now these time are all slightly subject to change, mostly just the ones for after the trail ride. Now just because the event is over does not mean that every one has to leave, nor does it mean that the wheeling has to stop.

    However, I must ask, that every one who is coming bring out a small trash bag, in order to take all of your trash with you and to not trash the place any more than the local hooligans do, and if the participants want we may even try to clean up around our area some of the stuff that was already there...

    That is really about it, very simple I know, but I figure that the simpler it is the less that can possibly go wrong.

    I look forward to seeing many of you out there for a great day of wheeling and helping a great cause. If you have any questions, Ideas, or you want to help feel free to get in touch with me as my contact info if located below.

    Regards,
    -Joe Walker

    WFTW, pelase read
    Hello, how is it going? I and new to this whole thing (mil jeepers) but I am already in love, and when I saw this (WFTW) i knew that it was something that i had to get involved with.

    I was wondering how I would go about setting up a poker run, or maybe something fairly simliar down here in el paso tx, at ft bliss.

    If you could get back to me that would be great, email is [email protected]

    and my phone is 540-392-6513, I am really interested in helping with this and maybe bringing alot of life into this program. if you can get back to me in the next couple of days then perhaps we can start working on something for maybe july, perhaps even a july 4th poker run.

    Thanks in advance,
    -Joe Walker


    So we already have one Tx. event in San Antonio, and could probably use another and actually 2 years ago one was planned for another location in Tx.and TTORA was involved among others, and I think its a great idea.
    You may want to get some insight from Richard Cruz or Jerry or anyone else on Richards team at www.wftw-sa.org .
    I called you and left my number.

    Alright it has been decided the poker runs proceeds will be going to wheelers for the wounded and the plan may be to turn the fundraisers into an eventual main event for the wheelers for the wounded, however that is still up in the air and will depend on the turn out for the fundraiser

    I look forward to seeing any who can make it out, also if you are in my area and are interested in helping me to put this together then please send me a PM, an email or simply call or txt me.

    Alright, I hit up Red Sands today nad did some exploring. Lot of dirtbikes out today and I wasn't familiar with the area. We need to meet up in the near future and do some mapping out of the trails we want to run. I'm sure there is a lot more than I saw today, and you said there was some more difficult and technical stuff that I'm sure I didn't find and would like to before the event.

    We need to figure out who is going to be the trial bosses for the different runs nad how many groups we want to run. Let me know what weekends work for you and we'll make a plan.
