For the second year in a row, the Domremy Hall was full of eager riders ready to get out on the trail. While there weren’t as many people as last year, those who came out and braved the elements said it was well worth the while.
The Poker Rally Committee began meeting in December in order to get what had been a very successful fundraising endeavour last year up and running once more. Once February 26th was chosen as the date, all that was left was to organize the raffle tickets and prizes, gathering up door prizes, silent auction items and rider prizes, and of course the kitchen. Thankfully, everyone put on their “A” game and it all seemed to come together.
The Poker Rally Committee and the Domremy Rec Board would like to thank everyone who volunteered to help make this poker rally such a success. Thank you to the group who made the trail – it was great! A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered to work in the bar, the registration table, the raffle table, the 50/50 table, and the fuel stop We also want to thank everyone who worked in the kitchen and on the barbecue. The food was excellent! Thank you once again to the Bear Lake Blizzards for the use of their shack. It was a great place to stop and enjoy the hot-dogs and drinks provided once again by Dantin Trucking.
We sure enjoyed ourselves and we hope you did too.

2nd place of $441.00 was won by Louise Georget
3rd place of $330.00 was won by Monte Krasicki
