This weekend is Custer’s first-ever Off-Road Rally!

Check-in begins on Friday at 12pm at the Custer Chamber of Commerce Visitor Information Center.  Also during that time will be the Show & Shine that will happen on 6th Street and will go until 7pm that night.  At 4pm various judges will take a trip through the participants and choose their favorites.  There will also be a guest appearance from Smokey Bear!  The awards for the Show & Shine will be given out on Saturday night at the banquet.

In and around the Visitor Information Center several vendors will be set up.  Black Hills Parks & Forests Association will be selling Motor Vehicle Use Permits, the Black Hills National Forest will have representatives on site with trail information, t-shirts will be available for purchase, and more.  Many of these same vendors, in addition to others, will be located behind Mt. Rushmore Brewing Company throughout the day on Saturday as well.

For a small fee of $10 visitors and locals alike can participate in the Poker Run which will be a beautiful route through great trails in the Custer area.  After signing up, participants will receive GPS coordinates for locations on the route to take selfies.  The selfies are what will be shown to Off-Road Rally staff on Saturday afternoon to receive poker hands.  The route will take about 4 ½-5 ½ hours.  Along the route the Boy Scouts will be selling pulled pork sandwiches, chips, and a drink.  Bathrooms will be available at the same location.  Custer also has several great restaurants for people that would prefer to come back to town for lunch.  In addition, Lynn’s Dakotamart has a deli and plenty of goodies for a great picnic.  Between 4-6pm selfies can be turned in at Mt. Rushmore Brewing Company to receive poker hands.  This is also a social hour that includes live music from Brent Morris and the Western Acoustics.

The banquet will be at the Custer Corral starting at 6pm, and that dinner is included with registration.  After dinner the awards banquet will take place at Mt. Rushmore Brewing Company starting at 7pm and will be followed by more live music.

It’s shaping up to be a great weekend full of fun for the whole family!  We hope you can join us!
