Salute To Veterans
Car & Motorcycle Poker Run!
August 14th 2021, 9:00AM – 3:00PM
Poker Run Starts in
Good Afternoon Veterans Car/Motorcycle Show friends
I hope this finds you all well!
First, I would like to thank you for being a part of the Veterans Show to help support our local veterans in need. Some of you have been with me since 2012! We have now raised over a quarter million dollars all for the veterans!
I have been in close contact with the Hillsboro Fair Complex director about our August 14th Show….No reservations are being taken yet and when/if they do, we could only have a whopping 300 people in attendance! That would cover a few cars/motorcycles and a couple of volunteers! No food trucks, use of only 75% of the area, no vendors, no raffle, no speakers, etc., and we would have to hire social distancing monitors to a tune of $29/hr. each for 9 hours and on and on….Very Very sad. I know how we are all itching to get our cars out, have some fun and support our local veterans in need!
SO…We are putting on a POKER RUN. We will keep you informed here and Also via Email. It will be on August 14th and be a 100 miles or so (?), a $20 fee, have 5 stops, and end up at a restaurant or large parking lot. I think it will be a fun day for all. There will be a couple of winner’s prizes – best and worst hands (?), and our usual printed shop towel and a printed mug would be handed out. We may sell our 2022 Calendar, Tee Shirts, mugs, and a few large raffle items, and the funds raised would support the Oregon Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Veterans Village for homeless veterans.
