2016 Illinois District MAD Poker Run

It’s time once again for the MAD Annual Fun Run. Our theme for this year will be Unique and Unusual Sites or Monuments. This was done in the past as oddities about 8 years ago. We will be doing it a little different this year. From all of the submissions that we have received, we have compiled a list of over 100 sites, plus some that we have added. We have also added a new twist: where we have included 15 additional BONUS sites which will allow you to have an extra draw for additional points.

       As in the past, you will need to visit the individual sites and have a picture taken of you visiting the site. You can also do this as a chapter and include the chapter picture. Your Chapter Director will then need to verify everyone from their respective chapter who did participate. For every five sites you visit, along with your pictures, you will be able to draw a hand of five cards. If you visit a BONUS site, which is at least 100 miles from your chapter’s home location, and send a picture with you in it, you will be allowed to have an additional bonus draw. All hands will be $5 per hand, plus an additional $1 for the bonus draw. Payment needs to be from a chapter checking account with the check made payable to; Illinois District Riders Ed. NO CASH or personal checks accepted. Multiple pictures can be printed on one sheet. If you want to send in pictures during the contest early, we will be posting pictures on the website.

You will need to have all your pictures, a copy of your checked list and paperwork for drawn cards sent to us to be included in the fun run by December 15, 2016.   NOTE: The list for the sites and paperwork for drawn hands are located on the website. After all the information is received by the cutoff date, each card in the deck will be randomly drawn and assigned a point value. Also, a separate drawing will be done for the bonus sites also and those will be assigned a bonus value. The total of these points will be given to the hand and the three highest totals will be the winners. Also note, you will need to visit the bonus site with the proper distance and submit a picture to be counted. If none of your six cards are a bonus number, you will receive a minimum value for the bonus draw. There will also be an award for the chapter that visits the most sites. Pictures are required to be eligible for the awards.  The winners will be announced at Winter Warm Up 2017 in Peoria. (Bikes do not have to be in the picture)


So let’s get riding and have some fun!
