Message from Salem HOG Director Bryce Campbell:
Richard Farmer has volunteered to chair the 2015 poker run committee, which will have its first meeting on Sunday, December 21, at 12 noon at Salem HD. This will be our December meeting.
The money we earn from the poker run pays for the Let It Ride and Pot Of Gold prizes, gifts and awards for the Christmas party, and about 90% of the summer or Christmas party. In 2013, it paid $2300 for our Christmas party at Oregon Garden. It also lets us donate to worthy charities that we choose.
We invest a significant amount of seed money for the run, such as prize money, supplies, insurance, posters, and advertising. We need your participation to make the run a success so we can continue to fund the parties and prizes during the year.
Since the poker run is a chapter project, we need some help from you, the members. If all of us help a little, then we can get it done without burning out those who take on a larger share. You can choose how much time to provide, since we have tasks ranging from making copies, to picking ride routes, to posting flyers and signs. You can help with registration, pass out game cards to participants or the prizes to winners, or even shuffle cards. It’s your choice.
Save this date on your calendar: July 12, 2015. Then, let’s have a big turnout for the meeting and really kick-off our 2015 poker run. Hope to see you there.
