In Memory of Curt Mitchener (11/9/1960-1/17/2008)
Last January our community was suddenly devastated when friend, father, coach, and loving husband, Curt Mitchener, tragically passed away of a heart attack. Curt was a very friendly and generous individual. He always played an active role in the community whether it was coaching little league teams or lending a hand to someone in need. He was a fun filled person who could always bring a smile to your face. Curt will be dearly missed, but never forgotten. His kind heart and personality shines through his loving family.
Our rally aims to give back to Curt and his family in appreciation for what they have given to our community. Your charitable donation will go toward the further education of Curt's three children. Please help us sooth the loss of Curt by participating in something he would have loved.
The Poker Run
There will be five predetermined destination points during the course of the rally. Each point consists of a short break where your team will receive a poker card along with directions to the next rally point. The best five card hand at the end of the event wins. Cash Prizes/Gifts
will be given away to the top three hands of the day.
Co-Pilots are highly recommended! Turn by turn details, Mileage, and Toll Amounts for each stop will be listed on your direction sheets.
Each driver and passenger will be responsible for signing a waiver prior to participating in the rally. Driver waivers can be found on our website. Either email them back or print and bring them to the rally. Passenger waivers will be available at the event. If you do not wish to print out a waiver we will have them available the morning of the event. If we do not have a signed form you will not be able to participate.
Donations can be made in the form of cash or check. You are not required to make the donation until the morning of registration. If you would like to make your donation ahead of time locate the "Donate Now" icon on our site. Please provide all of your information with the donation. Checks can be made out to Lori Mitchener.
