Riders will be in Shreveport-Bossier, Nov. 9-11, taking part in activities at Sam’s Town Hotel & Casino and enjoying the local Louisiana cuisine, live music and hospitality. On Sunday, Nov. 11, the progressive poker run will depart Shreveport for Lake Charles, stopping to explore a number of historic sites along the way.

At the time of the Louisiana Purchase, a large swatch of the western edge of what is now Louisiana was literally no man’s land. While the Adams-Onis Treaty in 1819 set new boundaries, the era of "No Man’s Land" would end only after the United States physically installed a military presence at “Cantonment Atkinson” in 1829.
