For the Poker Ride, there will be 5 aid stations where you will pick up a playing card. Once the ride is over, you'll take your cards to be verified (no swaping cards with anyone else on the ride) to see who has the best Poker Hand!! The winner will recieve $100.
The entry of $40 (no matter which ride you choose) will culminate with a BBQ of Chicken or Hot Dogs, Beans, Salad, Bread, Soda and a no host bar at Chamisal. If you'd like to partake of the BBQ and not the ride, you may purchase a BBQ ticket for $20.

We will also be holding a raffle with the grand prize bein a two night stay at Squaw Valley family cabin. Raffle tickets are being sold by Monterey Bay Multisport team members or you can contact Laurie McLennan at for more details. The raffle tickets are $5 for 3.
