Friends of Long Prairie Trail, Illinois Trails Conservancy, will hold its fourth annual Poker Run from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Aug. 7. Get out and bike on the Long Prairie Trail, where you will see nature at its best, get some good exercise, collect poker cards, and read about some of the natural and cultural features along the trail.
If you get a qualifying poker hand, you will win a gift certificate from one of the local participating merchants. Registration is $5 per five-card hand. You may pre-register by calling the Illinois Trails Conservancy at (815) 569-2472, or register on Saturday, Aug. 7, at either the County Line parking lot one-quarter mile north of Illinois Route 173, or Roland Olson Forest Preserve parking lot.
Prizes will be awarded to winners on Monday, Aug. 9, along with a list of all the hands.
