Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and related circumstances beyond our control, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our event scheduled for this August. The new dates for the return of the 47th (Third times the charm) Annual Smuggler Poker Run are August 6 & 7 2022, where the event will be more thrilling and better than ever!
Even though Washington State is scheduled to re-open in late June, we are not being given any new guidance from DNR and the State of Washington. We are being told to operate under January 2021 guidance which prohibits or makes nearly our whole event impossible. Some events have been held and have been successful, but unfortunately ours is on State/DNR managed land which adds another layer of rules and regulations. There does not appear to be a workable solution to staging a customary (and fun) poker run. If the restrictions were all lifted in June, we would have a month to make everything happen. That is not fair to my team, our supporters and likely would not provide you with the experience you’ve come to expect from the Smuggler.
We’ve been exploring the idea of a Determine virtual Smuggler….. but we haven’t been able to get the 2-Stroke Candle to smell right. All kidding aside, what do you think about riding a TTC arrowed course for fun and sharing your comments, pictures, and videos with the TTC community?
We hope you will understand this difficult decision, and that everyone who has enjoyed the Smuggler in the past, as well as first-time riders, will plan on joining us next year on August 6 & 7 2022 for a return of the Poker Run, prizes, Raffle, music, food, fun and friends. We look forward to seeing you at the 2022 47th (Third times the charm) Annual Smuggler Poker Run.
