MSA Wheels Poker Run
High Lifter Mud National Events are known for adapting to the region hosting the event while staying loyal to our ‘mud roots’. It’s never been truer than it is at the Full Throttle High Lifter UTV Rally powered by Polaris. The MSA Poker Run will take place in downtown Sturgis!
That’s right, the City of Sturgis has graciously shut down 2nd Street to allow space to park your machine while you play the MSA Poker Run in downtown Sturgis. Providing you have the proper equipment and permits for your machine, you can drive your UTV from The Full Throttle Saloon to downtown Sturgis to play.
You will have from Wednesday – Saturday to sign up for the Poker Run. When you register to play, you will be given a card that displays all 52 cards of the deck and a map of the Poker Run route. Once the Poker Run begins, you will travel to each station located in businesses on the map downtown to draw one card from a deck of cards. The station attendant will punch your playing card with the card you chose, and you will move on to the next station. At the fifth and final station, once you have drawn a card and your card has been punched, the attendant will keep your card for scoring. If you draw the same card at any two stations, you will be allowed to re-draw.
After all cards are completed and turned in, we will review the cards to determine the final high hand winner and low hand winner to be announced Saturday night during the concert. Both winners will win a set of MSA Wheels.
We want everyone to play and have a safe and enjoyable time. Several of the stops are in restaurants that serves alcoholic beverages and it is hot outside. Please make sure you have a designated driver to return you back to the Full Throttle when you finish playing.
Make plans to grab your friends and family and make it a group effort!
