Those that choose to participate, can buy a hand. Each morning they draw a card. On Tuesday, the best poker hands win the pot!!! We'll be passing out cards for about an hour each morning. We'll explain more at the Meet and Greet. 'Hope that helps!!

Are suggestions welcome? I've never been to a MOC gathering.. but have been to others in my 'past life'
Actually, the very first rally I went to was back when I belonged to Escapees. We had a rally somewhere in N.Cal as I remember. One of the very first things that happened as we pulled into the campground, we were met by some Escapees and the California Highway Patrol.. WoW.. What's up?

What's up was they arranged for the CHP to do a courtesy weighing of our rigs. I don't remember the order as this was 15 years ago. But, we weighed the truck with portable wheel scales.. all four wheels with the trailer attached. Then weighed all four wheels of the 5er while hooked up. Then we uncoupled and weighed the four wheels of the p/u again with the wife in the vehicle.

They gave us a printout of the weights of each wheel and the pin weight. I thought that was a fantastic bonus to that gathering.

Don't know if this is possible, too late to arrange with the Oregon Highway Patrol.. or if it's even wanted by the organizers.

Just a thought.

GreatWhite, that is a terrific idea. Can you head that up and get it done? I would love to have my rig weighed but would hope not to get a ticket if it is over weight.

Well, I started this morning by calling the Roseburg office of the Oregon Highway Patrol.. I'm assuming Maralyn or someone else is working on this. Someone called the HP office and was referred to ODOT. Please keep us posted. I'd guess this, if it works out, will have to be put on the agenda.. and, I'd assume we would/should register to be weighed so DOT has an idea of how many are interested. It's a great service if we can get it. Might help a lot regarding weight on each wheel for tire ratings and inflation.. among a number of reasons.

Marilyn-- Can you send me how the Poker Walk works? It might be a good idea for something new at the Fall Rally in Goshen.

Rondo,

The poker walk is an adaptation of a jet ski or motorcycle poker run. Each participant buys a sheet. Each day they walk, they draw a card from a deck of cards and record the card they drew on the sheet. For us the wagon masters will stamp their sheet for the day. At the end of 5 days (or the end of the rally), the best poker hand wins and the proceeds are divided up. You can award multiple places if you wish. At some rallies, they allow you to buy a 6th card to try to improve your hand. We have also seen it done as a fund raiser to defer costs.

In our event, it makes no difference how far you walk. You just have to show up to get your card between 8-9.
If you're interested, PM either Marilyn or I and we can send you a sample sheet.

Ken
