2005 Summer Mountain Ride East
July 15 & 16, 2005
Ride Coordinator: Andy Simons
The Summer Mountain Ride East is scheduled to start Friday, July 15, 2005. Plans for the day include a group ride to supper. Most of our group will be staying at the Ridgetop Motel & Campgrounds. The owners of the Ridge Top, Ron and Darlene Pickett, offer our group a great rate ($50 for one bed, $55 for 2 beds, campsites also available) and enjoy having motorcycle riders stay at their motel/campground. Be sure and mention the the MTF Summer Mountain Ride when you call for your reservation. Make your reservations early. Motels in this area fill up fast at $100+ rates.

The 2005 Poker Run Map and Plan:
Saturday's main activity at the Summer Mountain Ride/Smokey Mountains Rough Road Ride will be a Poker Run. The following guidelines apply: Participation is voluntary. You can come to the Summer Mountain Ride/Smokey Mountains Rough Road Ride and do your own thing. Entry Fee for the Poker Run will be $10. We will play 5 card poker. Please reference Hoyle for poker hand ratings. Riders earn credit for a card when they sign-in, credit for 3 cards by visiting 3 (of 16) sites shown on the poker run map (must show proof of visit), and credit for the final card by returning to the Ridge Top and checking in before 5:00P. Any ties will be broken by "cutting for the high card". All money taken for the poker run will be paid back as prizes (probably 66% first place, 33% second place). Sign-in for Saturday only riders will be from 8:00A till 9:00A. Check-in/drawings will be from 5:00P till 6:00p.
