Poker Run August 25, 2018

Many thanks to Di Atherton for organizing this fine event, with assistance from Jill, Randy, Catherine, Lori and Warren.

10 vehicles and about 25 people took part. Also thanks to our volunteer marshals. These photos are courtesy of Catherine Phillips and Warren Hiebert.

Cars left from the Credit Union parking lot, separated by 3 minutes. Each car was given a set amount of time to reach each checkpoint. If you arrived on time or late you received 2 poker cards, but if you arrived early only 1 card was received.

The first heading was down the ferry hill to turn left onto Easthom,  then left onto Harrison, up the hill to turn left onto Pat Burns. The first checkpoint was at Pat Burns and Stephens. Cars then headed along Stephens to South Road to proceed to the Golf Course for the second checkpoint. The third checkpoint was at Silva Bay, followed by the fourth at Robert’s Restaurant. From there we headed back down the ferry hill before turning onto Taylor Bay Road and heading to the fifth checkpoint at the Malaspina Galleries parking area. Finally it was on to our last stop at The Surf Pub.

The Surf had set aside a parking area for us and we headed into the pub for drinks and snacks, camaraderie, and the awarding of Poker Hand prizes for best high and low hands. Everyone else received a prize of some sort. Thanks to the members who organized everything at the Surf.
