EAGC 2019 Poker Run-A Scholarship Fundraiser Event
A poker run is a fundraiser in which each pilot or driver flies or drives to an airport, picks up a card for each purchased hand and continues to another airport. Passengers may also register and purchase as many hands as they would like.
Playing cards are distributed in sealed envelopes. You must start at one of the airports on the route where you will pick up your first card. You have a choice of three additional airports to stop at where you will pick up an additional card for each purchased hand. Finally, you will end (the terminus) at Salt Air FBO located at the Jack Edwards National Airport in Gulf Shores, Alabama (KJKA) where you will pick up your last card.
Envelopes with cards must remain sealed until you play your hand with the dealer. If you have any doubles of a card, you may trade the double in for another card with the dealer. If you choose to not stop at additional airports after your starting airport, due to weather factors or time constraints, you may pick up cards for your hands at the terminus, KJKA. Extra hands may be purchased at the terminus airport for $20.
Anyone can participate! Pilots, auto drivers, motorcycle riders and passengers. Insurance for your mode of transportation must be current.
Contact Terri Bazacos at (559) 618-0159 or at [email protected] to obtain the registration packet and purchase as many hands as you would like. Box lunches are available for $5. Please purchase your box lunch when you register or bring your own lunch.
Once registered, you will receive a text from Terri Bazacos confirming the number of cards to pick up at each airport.
