This year, after trying to work out the agency details for an ATV Poker Run through the forest that surrounds La Pine, the Chamber is hosting its very first ATV run. On September 12, 9 AM participants will start in North La Pine, go east of HWY 97 through Newberry Country on a mapped route (maps available with purchase of Poker Hand) ending up back at the starting point.
Taking on the roads through national forest, provides participants with a scenic route that will challenge their driving skills and allow them to take a look at what La Pine has to offer! The route takes folks on a trip to complete their poker hands during the fun of driving their favorite ATVs. The entry fee of $10.00 per hand will pay off in the end, too! The “Highest Hand” gets $100.00 to be awarded on stage in the La Pine Community Center of the event grounds at 3 PM. While there, families can visit many displays at the second annual two day Gun and Recreation Show in Frontier Heritage Park.
Come join in the fun. You can still register for a vendor spot, be part of the ATV Event and families are welcome!
