Each September, OC Bikefest brings a weekend of great music, spectacular stunt shows, and exciting activities to Ocean City, Maryland. This year, the shows and vendors will be second to none, like always, but the organizers of Bikefest want to make the 2013 edition of the event even more memorable than ever before. To do so, the Hogs and Heroes Foundation- a community of motorcycle riders that supports public safety workers, military personnel, and Wounded Warriors through fundraising events- and Casino at Ocean Downs are teaming up to help you win big at this year’s Bikefest. The 2013 Hogs and Heroes Poker Run is a weekend long event that will take bikers across the lower parts of Delmarva and culminate on Saturday night with one lucky participant taking home $1500.
Participants (ages 21 and up) will receive a player card when they register for the poker run at the inlet beginning Thursday September 12. Players must then embark on a journey around the Ocean City area, stopping at the 7 participating establishments and collecting the unique stamp from each on their player cards. Businesses include: the OC Bikefest main entrance at the Inlet, the Rommel Harley-Davidson location at the Convention Center, Seacrets, the Salisbury Greene Turtle, the Blue Ox, the Official Delmarva Merchandise/OC Bikefest ticket outlet at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, and Oasis Bar and Grille in Whaleyville.
Once all 7 stops are hit and the player card is full with the stamps from each, participants will proceed to the Casino at Ocean Downs to draw cards for their poker hand that will help determine the winner of the run. Cards can be drawn on Thursday September 12 from 1-9pm, Friday September 13 from 10am-9pm, and Saturday September 14 from 10am-5pm. Once completing their first card, players wishing to increase their odds of winning can obtain a second card by making a donation to the Hogs and Heroes Foundation. Winners will be announced prior to the Three Dog Night concert at the Inlet stage on Saturday night. The player with the best poker hand will win $1500 and the player with the worst hand will take home $500. For complete rules and event details, visit http://www.ocbikefest.com/p_pokerrun.php.
