The Off Road Business Association (ORBA) will host a free
Vendor Poker Walk during Contingency for the 6th running of the King of the
Hammers in Johnson Valley, CA. Five freshman members of the trade based OHV
advocate group will be hosting the poker walk. Participants may enter free of
charge by visiting any one of the participating vendors booths between 10 a.m.
and 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9.
The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. at the
SXSPerformance.com booth No.V42 in Hammertown.
Participating vendors are:
RuffStuff Specialties Booth V24
SXSPerformance.com Booth V42
Trail Gear Booth V45
Poison Spider Customs V43A
Torchmate CNC Cutting Systems Booth V20.
Participants will have the opportunity to draw an additional
card by making a donation to ORBA when they turn in their playing cards at the
SXS Performance booth.
"Our goal is to raise awareness of the type of work
ORBA does for OHV users through its work with lobbyists," ORBA president Fred
Wiley said. "Off-road industry leaders apply a different perspective when
dealing with legislators and we feel that the community needs to understand
that process. This interaction between ORBA membership and the end users is a
great first step in bridging the gap and showing consumers the work the
off-road businesses do to keep public lands public."
Participants will be required to visit each of the five
listed vendors to draw a single card and then turn in the completed playing
cards in order to win. The player with the best poker hand will win a prize
pack assembled from each of the ORBA vendors who are participating in the Poker
Walk. No vehicle travel is required and entry is limited to one per person.
Donations will benefit the effort to stop the 29 Palms base
expansion into the Johnson Valley OHV area through www.Savethehammers.org.
