John and Dottie Miller’s plans for the October 17 Poker Run have been completed. The fun will begin at the Holiday Inn Express in Morrilton, Arkansas, located at 8 Bruce Street, just south of I-40 and Hwy. 9. You can see the hotel from the intersection. We will meet at 9:00 a.m. in the hotel parking lot to check off all names and hand out a map of the run, draw the first playing card and any other necessary business. There is no cost to participate in the run but if you want to enter your name to draw a card, the fee will be $10.00 per person. At the final destination, we will draw the final card for the winning participant. The winner will receive half of the pot with the other half going to the Ozark Section for future expenses. The total value of the five cards picked will determine a winner. If there is a tie, a card for each final winner will be drawn to break the tie. We will leave the parking area of the hotel at approximately 9:30 a.m., turning left to make the short drive to Hwy. 9. Turning right onto Hwy. 9 will take us to Hwy. 64 where we will head East to Hwy. 25, which is at the west end on Conway. Then travel north for about a mile to Kinley Drive with a beautiful lake-park to draw the second playing card. Our third stop will be at the corner of Hwy. 64 and Hwy, 5. Continuing north on Hwy. 5 to Hopewell we will draw the fourth card and then onto our destination in Heber Springs. The Millers have picked a beautiful location for lunch at the Red Apple Inn, 305 Club Road, on Eden Isle. A very large dining room is available for us to enjoy lunch, and we will draw the last final card for the grand winner. If any of the group would like to take in one more surprise, the Millers are planning a trip back toward Morrilton but heading a little more west to view something they won’t currently talk about. They will provide a second map to all who want to get a little adventurous. From this final location, it is easy to head back home Northwest towards Harrison, Arkansas or South to Morrilton and back home on I-40. The Holiday Inn Express has offered us a rate of $ 94.00 to $ 104.00 per stay. Several members may plan to spend Friday night. Please call the hotel at least 5 days before the event to ensure availability. The number is: 501-215-4924. If there are any questions about this event, please don't hesitate to contact the Millers at 479-414-9415 or [email protected]. All other information on the route will be handed out at the hotel. Please come join us for a great day of fun. See you there!
