2018 Poker Run

It was great to see many of you at the Poker Rally on Saturday, and it was nice to meet and visit with new members.  Although the snow was declining during the week, the groomers made the best of what we had and were able to establish the event trail.  Hopefully, we will see more snow this season!  It’s no fun to ride on pavement!   There was lots of fun to be had on a beautiful, sunny weekend.  The lunch was scrumptious, as usual.  Thanks so much to the cooking crew for all their hard work in preparing the meal, setting up and cleaning up afterwards.  The raffle went well.   Thank you so much for all who donated prizes.  Michelle Grubbs and the rest of the crew responsible for obtaining, displaying prizes and selling tickets also did a great job.  Many commented that it was nice to have ticket bags for the individual gifts.   We have lots of new t-shirts and sweatshirts available so let us know if you are interested in purchasing one.  We received several membership applications this week-end.  Thank you for those too!  Thanks for all those who helped with registration and for those who manned the stations.  It appeared that everything went quite smoothly.  A big thanks to the Bakers, Brumbaughs and DeWitt for donating the shotgun for the raffle again this year.  Last, but not least, thanks very much to the lodges for providing such a welcoming and fun environment to enjoy our off snow time.

The next BLSD event will be the playday on Saturday, March 3rd.  Hopefully we’ll have lots of new snow by then!  I will send an update as the date gets closer.

All for now,

Barb
