Bad Bart, Western Hanover County retired outlaw, has agreed to share some of his loot with Southern Express Drill Team IF local riders can beat him at poker at one of his poker runs. Bart always seems to come up with aces on his poker runs. Southern Express Drill Team thinks that you can beat Bart at his own game, if it is played by our rules. We are allowing him only one ACE in his hand but he will give you an ace if you can catch him.
ENTRY FEE 20 DOLLARS CASH MONEY- Bart doesn’t take checks or plastic money.
PAYBACK- for highest hand is 10% of pot. Payback for second highest hand is 7% of pot. Payback for third highest hand is 5% of the pot.
Add $10 to payback places 1, 2, or 3 if you beat Bart’s hand.
RULES: This is a self guided trail ride to each of Bart’s SIX favorite hideouts to receive a sealed card envelope. Bart will be on the trail. If you can find him he will give you an ACE.
Notes: The terrain is hilly and wooded with creeks, mud, and some large open fields. Trails will be marked with ribbons. Horses will not need shoes.
Children under 18 need to be accompanied by an adult. Cards will not be accepted for the game unless still in their sealed envelopes or an ACE having been taken from Bad Bart. Each rider will sign a liability release.
A current negative coggins certificate will be required
