Motorcycles, Cars & Trucks Invited to the OMC Dice Run of the Mills June 10

Inaugural Event will raise money for needed equipment for treating breast cancer

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation will hold its First OMC Dice Run of the Mills on Saturday, June 10. Each year, this fundraiser will be used to raise money for a specific need of one of the departments of OMC. This year, the need that was identified is an attachment for OMC’s 4D Linear Accelerator to treat breast cancer when the tumor is located close to the heart and lungs.

The Dice Run is open to motorcycles, cars & trucks. Cost to enter is $20 per vehicle. Riders can begin the route any time after registration, which will be 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. at OMC Parkway Center. To participate in the dice game, dice scoring cards can be purchased for $5 each. T-Shirts and koozies will be available for purchase at both registration and the Lot Party.

The public is invited to attend the Lot Party at Great Rivers Distributing, located on Highway 63 in Pomona, even if they are not participating in the Dice Run. The Lot Party will open at 1:00 p.m. with food trucks, a cash bar, a silent auction, and vendor booths. The rock band Fender Bender will begin at 2:00 p.m. and will play throughout the afternoon. Dice Run Awards will be announced at 3:00 p.m., and the 50/50 drawing winner and silent auction winners will be announced at 4:00 p.m.

“What better way to raise money for a wonderful cause than to have a little fun while doing it,” said Ward Franz, Director of the OMC Foundation. “The Dice Run is a 122 mile ride that will have stops at Dawt Mill, The Antler, Hodgson Mill, Rockbridge, and Twin Bridges, and then end at a Lot Party at Great Rivers Distributing. It’s a way to showcase the beauty of the Ozarks and invite riders to join local riders in experiencing all the Ozarks has to offer,” he said.

For those unfamiliar with the rules of a dice run, five dice will be rolled at each of the six Dice Roll Stops. The player’s score will be recorded on their dice scoring card. A prize will be awarded to the winner of each stop for highest roll (at Dawt Mill, Rockbridge, and Twin Bridges) and lowest roll (at The Antler, Hodgson Mill, and Great Rivers Distributing). The grand prize of $100 will be awarded to the participant who has the highest overall dice roll score after all six rolls. Consolation prizes will be awarded for lowest overall score, oldest motorcycle driver or passenger, and for the person who traveled the farthest to compete.

Sponsors for the event include Great Rivers Distributing, Outpost Motorsports, Q94 Classic Rock, Bartlett Moving Services, and Lazy W Pallets.

Vendors at the Lot Party are Outpost Motorsports, Q94 Classic Rock, Bikers Against Child Abuse, OMC Cancer Awareness, US Cellular, and Red Calf Designs.

Food trucks at the Lot Party are The Bus Stop and McClard’s Boro Dogs.
