Happening March 14th 2010 be there….
Poker Run is a term derived from organized motorcycle events where riders would travel over a prescribed course and, at designated stopping points, be given randomly-selected playing cards. At the end of the poker run, the person with the Best Poker Hand wins the Top Prize.
When some folks hear the words “Poker Run”, they think of go-fast motorcycles travelling at Break-neck speeds. Lots of noise, big bikes with big engines – you get the picture? They think it requires speed – and lots of money. In fact, POKER RUN is not a race and you might be amazed just how low-key, relaxing, and inexpensive it can be.
The type of Poker Run which I will be introducing requires a fee to enter, which provides a way of getting lots of people to have fun and to win prizes. Bike owners will participate in their own bikes and others can ride along with them and participate in the fun as well. The day will begin with a “check-in” station. At that time, money will change hands on the 1st Checkpoint to cover the costs of any prizes – and other possible food and programmes. I will also be distributing an introduction pamphlet of the Poker Run area with all of the Checkpoints marked and times of key events included.
As the day progresses, the bikes will travel from Checkpoint to Checkpoint, collecting more playing cards at each Checkpoint. At the end of the day, I’ll score everyone’s poker hands and determine a winner with the best poker hand.
