Come to Fat Mama’s Poker Run

We are ready to roll for the seventh annual Krewe of Fat Mama’s Poker run. Again this year the Krewe of Fat Mama’s and Adams County Search and Rescue have teamed up to host the 2017 Natchez Poker Run. All raised money benefit Adams County Search and Rescue (ACSAR). ACSAR is a 100-percent volunteer group that depends on fund raisers to bring a valuable service to you, our citizens. Bring your bike, buggy, classic vehicle, (anything street legal), to Fat Mama’s Tamales (FMT), Saturday. Your participation will help ACSAR protect you.

Adams County Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization dedicated to the mission of search and rescue, Mississippi River safety, first aid/CPR, evidence recovery and other tasks assisting the population of Adams County.

ACSAR has coordinated many missions with our neighboring counties and parishes.

The seventh annual schedule will start with registration from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. at Fat Mama’s Tamales, 303 S. Canal Street. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. All street legal vehicles will leave for Illusion’s on the Vidalia — Ferriday Highway. Following this our route will take us to the Under-the-Hill Saloon on Silver Street, then on to CR’s for lunch. Lunch will consist of a hamburger plate for $5 with a drink. About 1:45 p.m. we will take a scenic ride out Highway 33 to the 33 Roadhouse to get the fourth card. All vehicles will arrive back at Fat Mama’s to draw the fifth card at approximately 4:15 p.m.

The best five card stud poker hand wins $500. The second best hand gets $300. The third place winner gets a cool $100. Many door prizes will be given away as well. Such categories as “Most Patriotic Bike” (or vehicle), or “Best Bling” will be awarded from a panel of ACSAR judges. A 50/50 pot is a $5 chance to win half of ALL the money in the pot. You don’t want to miss this!

Entry fees for the poker run are $25 per bike. Jokers (Wild Cards) can be purchased for an additional $25. All street legal vehicles will be charged an entry fee of $25 as well. T-shirts for this year’s event are $15 each and are limited in number, so be sure to get yours early.

More information may be obtained by visiting our Facebook page at “Natchez Poker Run.” Event Coordinator Melissa Brown can be reached at 601-807-8030 with any additional questions.

Come enjoy the fun and fellowship! Come support and meet the volunteers you pray you will never need. Be sure to talk to the ACSAR members and see if you have what it takes to be one. Adams County Searchand Rescue exists to help protect Adams County and its neighbors.

Thanks in advance for your support.
Stan Owens Jr. is the vice president of the Krewe of Fat Mama’s Tamales.
