RECAP: Montana Trip 2014 & Children's Ride 2014

Highlights of the 2014 trip to

Lowest temperatures on record for the dates we were there...
think low 30's!

Highest rain fall on record for the days were were there...
3" in one day!

Latest snowfall on record!

Did I mention the "Road to the Sun" in Glacier National Park was washed out by rain the day after we were there?

And the State of Montana was doing there best to start road repairs early in the season, so a lot of pavement was stripped off - leaving an interesting array of mud, gravel and water-filled pot holes to greet our return journey!

There were some entertaining adventures,
and some amazing scenery to behold!

2nd Annual WSHS Poker Run
Benefiting the Field Trip Transportation Fund

What's the #1 reason why many of Washington's school children can't go on field trips? Is it the cost of admission? Nope. Actually, the cost of transportation is what often prevents our area's kids from getting to supplement their classroom experience with a visit to the Washington State History Museum, where they get to connect with their local history and shared past.

That's where YOU come in! Suit up, gas up your motorcycle, and come on down to the History Museum on Saturday, June 7. Ride in our 2nd Annual Poker Run to benefit our Field Trip Transportation Fund. This fund provides grants of up to $150 per school to assist with the cost of renting buses to bring kids to the History Museum. Last year, during our inaugural run, the event raised enough money to transport 700 kids here for field trips! Some of the kids who have visited us this school year had never stepped foot in a museum before.

Help us to increase those numbers and our impact on local kids. The ride begins at the History Museum in downtown Tacoma and makes four stops between here and the State Capital Museum in Olympia before ending at The Swiss Restaurant & Pub. Prizes are awarded for the best and worst hands. No pre-registration required...just show up the morning of the Run.

  • Saturday, June 7
  • $15 per rider or $20 for rider and passenger
  • Registration begins at 9:30am
  • First bikes out at 10am
  • Last bikes out at 11:30am
  • Last bikes return to The Swiss by 2:30pm
