Welcome to the Rawlins Jam Motorcycle Rally website! This site was created to convey information on this rally which takes place every summer in Rawlins, Wyoming. This rally and poker run has evolved over the years. Originally, it was sponsored and organized by Jill Carrico and was called Jill's Jam. She handed over the reins to a group of orgainizers several years ago. That group apparently got burnt out on the process so wanted to give up their roles. John Rutherford and Scott Hannum and a few volunteers have since taken over the organization of this rally. In the past, and it appears the same will happen this year, the activities will consist of a full day of activities, starting in the morning with registraion. The participants can register, starting at 8:30 a.m. and leave on the poker run together at 10:00 a.m. (kickstands up) The route starts in Rawlins, goes to Baggs then over the Sierra Madres to Encampment then to Saratoga and back to Rawlins. Cards are drawn in Rawlins before leaving, at three intermediate locations along the route and the last card is drawn upon the return to Rawlins. Once back in Rawlins, the participants present their cards and the winners are determined. The after ride activities are sponsored by various sponsors with food and usually a dance. Prizes will be awarded to the top three best poker hands and a winner of the bug splat will be presented along with a few door prizes. It is always a good time so if you know somebody who rides a motorcycle, tell them about the day of activities and this website so they can participate next year.
I am trying to make this a destination site to get information on Wyoming poker runs and rallies as well. If you are sponsoring or know of a rally or poker run in Wyoming, let me know so I can add the event to the 'Wyoming Rallies'
page to spotlight other Wyoming rallys.
If you are interested in being a sponsor of this website, send me an e-mail
and I'll give you a quote for what the cost will be. I will present a graphic on this main page with a link to either your website or your e-mail address and the cost will be minimal. This could be an inexpensive way to advertise on a rally site such as this and get the word out to bikers about your business or your service.
