2018 Annual SnoMoles' Cookout & Poker Run


UPDATED: 2/15/2018


Unfortunately due to the lack of snow it was decided at the meeting to postpone our annual cookout and poker run. This is a tough decision as many people have put a lot of work into making this happen. We are going to play it by ear depending on snow. So if you see good snow conditions in the area, check back on our website or Facebook page as there will be updates there. In the event we do not get any more snow, we intend to have a cookout at least at a later date. Stay tuned….


The Monadnock Snomoles' Annual Cookout and Poker Run will be February 17th, 2018 from 11:00am to 4:30pm. Groomers will be out prior to the cookout to ensure all the trails will be groomed.

Cookout donations: $10 for adults- Kids 12 and under $5. All you can eat. For those bringing food dishes, (all dishes, salads, treats etc. are welcome) there will be someone at the cookout location to handle any drop-offs from 9am on. See Location On Google Maps Please put your name on your crock pot, dish etc. so we can make sure it gets back to you.  

The Poker Run starts & ends at the house at the end of Beach Ave. on Lake Contoocook in Jaffrey. (Coming across the lake (403E) from the rail bed (Corr 4) towards Woodbound, it will be on the right shoreline. After you pass the point, look for all the sleds!) There is NO TRAILER PARKING at this location! The Poker Run is $20 for 5 hands. Wild cards are available for an additional $5. The stops have yet to be determined due to our uncertainty of the safety of the ice or snow amounts a month from now. (More info will be posted the nearer we get to the Cookout.) USE CAUTION crossing water at any time, please.

Parking is available at the public beach parking area, Squantum Rd. Jaffrey, NH and at Monadnock Marketplace in Rindge, NH (Market Basket) There is some parking at the Dragon Palace in Troy as well.

The Vintage Ride - Has been scratched from this event this year. Putting the cookout and poker run together is taxing enough on the help that we do receive. We hope to have a seperate vintage ride on another date.

Can you help? We need some folks to help us with our event. Be it manning one of the poker stops along the route or checking the cards when players return. We have a number of little jobs we could use help with. If you think you might be able to give us a hand, please attend our monthly meeting Tuesday Feb 13th at Emma's 321 at 7PM. If you can't make the meeting or you would like to help sooner, you can email us asap at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. At the meeting we will be discussing everything about the event and getting all the bases covered. Certainly would be nice to have some extra help for this year's event.

Thank you for your interest in our event. This is our clubs primary fund raiser for the year. Funds raised aid in equipment repairs mostly. We do take a portion and make an annual donation to the Easter Seals' Camp Sno-Mo which allows children to enjoy the "camp" experience for a week that might otherwise not be able to due to their disability.
