The Fern 45 Is Tomorrow!

We are so excited to see all of you tomorrow for the 2nd Annual Fern 45 Patriot Poker Run. Tshirts, mud, and good times await! 

Before tomorrow we wanted to go over a couple of important items: Registration and Guidelines. This is a lot of info, thank you for sticking with us and reading to the end. 
If you have pre-registered, thank you first of all this helps us out tremendously, you will be receiving an email today with a liability waiver. Please print and sign your waiver and bring it with you to check-in tomorrow along with either a paper copy or electronic copy of your tickets (on your phone). Bring both your waiver and tickets to the check-in table to receive your vehicle decal and any tshirts you have ordered at 9am. Those camping on site will have an opportunity to register tonight. 

If you have not yet registered, we have held a number of spots for on site registration. Please plan to arrive and be ready to register by 8:30am. We ask that you bring either cash or a money order/cashier's check to pay your registration fees. We will have a card reader on site, but sometimes service is sketchy. 

We will have a number of volunteers waiting to check you in and get you ready to go, we do ask that you be patient. Volunteers are hard to come by and we love ours so please be kind. 
Important Info & Guidelines

We are anticipating beautiful weather, it will be a little chilly in the morning and in the high spots so come prepared. We will be serving lunch for those who have purchased tickets. Lunch will be served from 11am to 1pm. Please be sure you come back to the staging area to grab some during that time slot. Just a reminder that this is not a race, we encourage everyone to take your time and enjoy the scenery, get to know your fellow riders, and take lots of pictures. If you do post pictures or updates to social media, remember to tag us #Fern45. The first heat (dirt bikes) will be released at 10am with other vehicles falling in line behind them. In order to keep on schedule we ask that you finish the course by 3pm. 

Raffle tickets will start to be drawn at 3pm sharp, you must be present to win. During that time our crew will be finalizing the poker hands to determine a winner. Poker hands will be decided in accordance with official poker rules outlined in the handbook on site. There are no jokers or wild cards this year, but you will have an opportunity to purchase additional cards at the end of the run. A $500 cash prize will be given to the top hand. We will draw a random hand to receive a custom YETI

Answers to Email Questions

Thank you for all the input during the last couple of days. We have heard from many of you asking about location and number of other things. Just in case you have these questions too:

Location - Where do we go?
The event will start, stage and end at the Fernley 95a Speedway 1965 S Hwy 95A, Fernley. Google maps may show this out in the desert, no worries! It's right off the highway, can't miss it. 

Do you take credit cards? 
The short answer is yes. But it depends on service, so please be prepared. We will have raffle tickets, limited quantities of tshirts, sweatshirts, and decals for sale, along with adult beverages. Cash is much appreciated for efficiency. 

Can I still register? 
Yes, but we are very limited. Please come early as to allow space and time for those who have pre-registered to check in. Even better send us an email and let us know: Number of Tickets, Type of Tickets, Number and Type of Vehicles, Names for Tickets, and a good contact number. Those who missed the pre-registration deadline will not be receiving tshirts, those can be purchased separately. Lunches will be provided to late registrations on a very limited quantity. 

Camping - Is it still available? 
Yes, you can still purchase camp sites either on the ticketing website or on site. The gate to the Fernley 95A Speedway will be open to those camping at 4pm today, Friday, November 4th. One price for one or two nights, $20.

Can I Still Sign Up to Volunteer?
Absolutely! Email us right away. Volunteers will be expected to arrive by 7am the day of the event.  

If you have any other questions, please contact us at or post it on our FB page

Thank you to everyone for helping to make this event a success and supporting the Nevada Veterans Coalition, we'll see you tomorrow!
