Russell County Combined Search and Rescue will be hosting a Jeep Poker Run on October 20, 2018. More and more details will be released as they become available. We also hope to have online registration available in the coming days. Although this is a Jeep poker run, this is not a Jeep specific event and there will be no “off road” routes. We encourage all vehicles big and small as long as they are street legal. Meeting point will be released soon. Registration will begin at 8:00am and the ride will begin at 10:00am. This year’s theme will be “Tour De Russell County”. We will be winding the back roads of Russell County and hopefully showcasing a side of the county that many may have never seen. This will be an all day event. There will be three scheduled stops along the route with the first being in Dante for lunch with Shug’s foodapalooza food truck, The next stop will be in Cleveland, And the final stop will be in Honaker. We will then travel back to the shelter at the Lebanon Farmers Market for food, entertainment, door prizes, 50/50 drawings, and Grand prizes. There will be a prize for high hand and low hand. As to be less confusing for everyone, we will be drawing specially marked poker chips instead of cards. These chips will be marked with numbers. The high hand will be the player with the highest count as will the low hand be the player with the lowest count. The entry fee will be $25 per vehicle and $10 per additional hand. Riders and drivers are both welcome to additional hands. Tee shirts will be sold on the day of the event. Also, with October being breast cancer awareness month, a portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated directly to breast cancer research. All other proceeds will go towards the purchase of technical rescue equipment and training for our organization. Keep an eye on our page as we release more details leading up to the big day! Come on out and take a ride through the country with us!
