Poker Run!!!

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Have we thought about doing a poker run? They're a lot of fun, and a super easy way to acclimate brand newbies into the "rally" lifestyle... For those unfamiliar with a poker run, the nice thing about them is that time does not have to be a factor. Groups are made up of 5 teams, each team is working with a deck of cards. At the beginning of the run, each team in a group is dealt 5 cards from their group's deck. At the first checkpoint, there is a "dealer" who will allow the teams to switch cards. Teams aren't required to switch cards, but it plays just like 5 card poker/5 card stud. At the last checkpoint/end of the run, the teams present their hands. The team with the best hand wins their group! You can include a time element to help get an overall winner out of all the groups (over/under penalties), but it's not necessary. Rally route can include traps and tricks for fun, the poker runs I've done in the past have been divided by "elements" (leg one is in the mountains, leg 2 is highway driving, leg 3 is country backroads). Just a thought! :)
