Sat March 7, 2020-- Welcome to the 5th edition of SnowBall's Chance!
ANYBODY CAN WIN !!! All Bikes are Welcome!!!!
This FUNdraiser event for the WaterShed Trails of Port Jervis, NY is ridden as a Poker Ride (5 card stud). There is no need to "race" or be in a hurry. You can ride with your friends as a group ride, a personal challenge, a scavager hunt, time trial, or however you want. This is all about The Experience!! You just have to finish and make sure your "hand" is turned in by 3:00pm. There will be 5 checkpoints , 4 of which will be within the WaterShed Trail System. You will be allowed to get to these checkpoints by any route you want. The WaterShed Trail System is marked amazingly well and there will be maps available. The shortest total mileage to get to all 4 checkpoints will be about 10 miles, but again you can take the long/more fun way if you want.
At each checkpoint you will be allowed to draw one card per hand. You are only allowed to play one Championship hand for the BIG POT. We will also have other hands that you can buy into at registration. Other POTs will include Cash and/or Prizes to be played for.
The Championship hands will be broken down into the top three hands in each category. Total buy in will determine the cash payout for the championship hands. In the event of a draw, those players will cut for High Card to decide.
There will also be WILD CARDS in every deck. These cards will be worth prizes and possible cash as well. If you draw a WILD CARD for your hand, you keep that wildcard and then draw another card for your hand at each checkpoint. So basically you get multiple chances to win!!
The Ride will go on, Rain, Snow, or sun with 100% chance of FUN!
Registration and Awards will be at Up Front Gallery (31 Jersey ave. Port Jervis, NY)
Race, Ride, Experience SnowBall's Chance! This is a benefit for the WaterShed Trails of Port Jervis and the Outdoor Club of Port Jervis.
