I have put on 2 or 3 of these in the past but it has been a long time since we have done one…I am redesigning the run to make it easier to manage and run...Buy in for the "Pot" will be $5 person...We all start at the same location and at the same time and that will allow everyone to drive at a comfortable pace without getting lost...As in past runs, the Newby and Angwin, there will be detailed instructions and mileage at key areas...We will drive through the foothills and lower Sierras collecting a card at each check point with the intention of getting the highest poker hand and winning the pot…And speed is not important...Although this will be a moderately paced event...We will enjoy the scenery, especially around the Amador and El Dorado Wine Country...Entry fee has been changed to accomodate the changes…At the first stop we will all pick one card...High card wins $2...Ties will be broken with an additional draw...We will then proceed to next stop...Everyone draws a card...and high hand wins $4...Again ties are broken with an additional card until someone wins...This continues with each stop with a $2 increase in the winnings...I am ending the run at the Pizza Factory in Ione...Please order when you arrive, retire to upstairs area and wait for everyone to order...We will then compare hands and high hand wins the pot which will be $5 times the number of entrants minus $20 for the stops along the way...The hands will be given to the organizer...Me...And I will announce the winner and present the pot...Remember that the more participants that enter the bigger the pot...Directions will be clear and driving the route will be easy, scenic and straight forward...With a couple of new roads thrown in...This event is meant to be a nice drive and fun competition for all...Pace will be moderate...So if the speed limit is too much for you this may not be your run...This is a sunny day run only and if there is doubt about the sun you may check back at this website and it will be set up to let all know the intentions that morning…Rain cancels the event...Check back on this website for rain/sun notice...Please RSVP by April 29.....As of this revision (April 24) we have 26 participants which amounts to a $130 pot overall with $20 going to winners along the route...And an $110 pot at the end...Get those RSVPs in now...One week to go!!!
