News Flash... every month we get a few emails from readers asking if we can list their poker run or bike show in the calendar. We always say, Yes, send over the info and we would be glad to. However, there is a catch: to make the newsstand in time for your event, we need to get the info at least three months ahead of time. So if you want us to post your event info, we need time to do so. Email any info to firstname.lastname@example.org

Frank’s Ride for Children
Frank’s Ride is one of Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado’s largest and longest-running fundraisers. This event has raised enough money to grant wishes for nearly 100 children in Colorado. The fun kicks off with breakfast and registration at the American Legion Post #32, followed by a 100-mile road trip through northern Colorado with stops in small towns along the way to collect a poker hand. Its last stop is Anderson Farms, where you’ll be treated to a pig roast, BBQ beef, sides, and beverages. If that isn’t enough for you, there’ll also be live entertainment, drawings, and door prizes.

Myrtle Beach Bike Week
Murrell’s Inlet, SC
Myrtle Beach Bike Week should be pretty fun so long as you, um, avoid Myrtle Beach. If that sounds snarky, bear in mind, the event’s website says pretty much the same thing: Many of the people made reservations outside the city of Myrtle Beach and discovered better rates, friendlier places, and how much easier it was to get around the Grand Strand and out to the surround areas. They discovered all the ordinances the city of Myrtle Beach passed really didn’t bother anything because they never went into the city of MB. So, feel free to visit Myrtle Beach, but don’t actually stay there.
