SPRING INTO YARNELL AND FALL INTO YARNELL POKER RUN will be an amazing day, with some amazing stops, all to benefit a great cause. The registration will start at 8 am  and will feature 5 stops for card pick ups and raffle tickets. We will use a conventional scorecard that will be imprinted with the card you have drawn at each stop. You will have the opportunity for 1 card re buy on the trail to try and make a better hand. The highest 3 hands at the end of the run will receive the top 3 prizes. We will offer a 50/50 raffle and an array of prizes and giveaways from our sponsors. UTVAZ will provide staging for trucks and trailers on a 2 acre graded two tier piece of property behind the American Legion in Yarnell. Upon completion of the run all UTV's will arrive at Gilligans Pizza & Bar for their final card and the finale of the event, Gilligans will have great specials and live music onsite. Proceeds from the event will go to pay the cost of the event and to help our local charity!

All entrants will be required to sign an event waiver and follow the rules given out at the event.







For an entry fee each person gets a scorecard and runs a preset route with 5 stops or checkpoints. At each checkpoint there is a person with a full deck of cards in a bag. The participant then has to pull a random card out of the bag and have it marked on their score card and continue on to the next checkpoint. At the final checkpoint all the scorecards are collected up and the persons with the top 2 best hands and the person with the worst hand will win the tier prizes. 100% of the entry will go to WeDevelop fro charity! 50/50 raffle - 50% to winner and 50% to WeDevelop for charity


As we are approaching the close of registration there are approx. 135 vehicles with over 290 people registered so upon arriving back to Yarnell the finale traffic will be split up as follows:

1. All entrants will arrive to Gilligans to turn in their poker cards for count and each group can decide on where they would prefer to have the finale at, the American Legion will have Live Music as will Gilligans, Gilligans will serve a slimmed down menu of Pizza, Wings, Salads and Sandwiches and the American Legion will be Serving homemade Burgers, sides and Deserts. 

2. We will have a live stream between the 2 restaurants so all can enjoy the calling out of the winners of the Poker Run and the various 50/50 and gift raffles.

3. If you are not planning on staying later in Yarnell you can drop your cards and purchase your raffle tickets and you will be called in the event you are a winner, you DO NOT have to be present to win.

4. The American legion will also be doing dinner for Friday Night and will have Coffee, Doughnuts and Biscuits and Gravy for Saturday Am and Sunday Am

5. Gilligans will not be serving breakfast on Saturday and Sunday due to the work load to coordinate the poker run, The American Legion and Nichols West both will have breakfast

6. On the Hillside checkpoint there will be hot dogs and ice cold shrimp cocktails available along with drinks for the riders.


1. The trails will be manned by the Arizona Rangers Auxiliary a non profit group of retirees to aid all the riders along with the Fire Chief, medic and mechanic.

2. This IS NOT a timed race this is a fun full day in the Weaver Mountains visiting some of our local establishments all for charity. The charity benefiting the run will be WeDevelop, Toys For Tots of Yavapai County and The Arizona Rangers Auxiliary
