This Saturday is the third annual Topless Jeep Poker/Bead Rally in New Mexico. Going topless means taking the top off the Jeep Wranglers. They then drive the Jeeps through the towns of Portales and Clovis, collecting poker cards and beads at specified stops along the way for a total of seven cards and eight beads. At the finish, the Jeep with the best poker hand winds. The beads are strung into a Mardi-Gras style necklace for the participants to keep. The main goal of this rally is to raise money for the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico.
