    start point is SOPHIA’S PLAZA, 2 North Rd, East Windsor .on RT 140.  Just off of I 91 N EXIT 45 at the intersection of RT 140 and Rt 5.

    Gather for 10am drivers meeting and mini-monthly meeting.  First car out at 10:30
    Plenty of places at this interchange for gas, coffee and breakfast

    14th Annual Poker Run.  Yup…14 Poker Runs in the books! The basics are this…you and your navigator are given a set of written directions. Follow the directions and you will find the finish point for lunch. Don’t ask, because I am not telling ahead of time where the finish is. Pretty simple. the only technology you need is a pencil or pen…a clipboard comes in handy. Along the way you will be given questions to answer. Anything you can see from your car after you leave the start is fair game for a question. Some may be in the form of a riddle. When the instructions say TAKE A CARD, look for a sign on the side of the road.  the bag hanging on the sign will have sealed envelopes with cards inside.  Best poker hand at the end gets the cheezy trophy. Nothin’ to it!

    A few things…this is a RAIN OR SHINE event.  If you sign up, SHOW UP. Deadline for signup is FRIDAY AUGUST 13 about 8pm.  This is very important because i need an EXACT car count.  I put just enough cards on the signs on Saturday afternoon so everything is in place for Sunday fun. Figure on  3 – 4 hours  and a little over 100 miles. This is a self paced ride, so your time will depend on your driving style. This is NOT a race…finishing first just means that you spend more time at the finish socializing. There will be a review of all the questions and answers.

    Are you smarter than a 5th grader?…only time will tell!!

    You folks are gonna like what is in store for you.  Route finished…end point found and sampled.  All is right in Poker Run world

    Well..I see that some folks were waiting for more information to get posted…

     

    up to 28 cars now!!!

     

    this one is proving to be a bit of a challenge.  the route is pretty much finished…some new roads i discovered, a few spots I have used in the past but not in quite a while and strung together differently…definitely ‘interesting’ for the driver.  Lots of very technical back roads in an area we do not frequent.

     

    which is a bit of a problem for me so far…i have to find a way to finish it!!  The area we will be exploring is a restaurant desert and we might have to have a bit of boring at the end to get someplace that can take our group.

    I will get it figgered out and still make it fun.  Plan on an all day thing
