So what is everyones thoughts on clubs haveing poker runs. Our club has one every year. I personally think that they are a blast. I found that the trick is to get an early start and try to keep allthe drunks that you are rideing with from sitting in one bar to long.

I've only been on one poker run but it was quite fun. I enjoyed it because you ride sled all day and you can come out of it with a pretty nice chunk of change if you play your cards right.

We have poker runs in my area every two weeks. 6 or 7 stops total. Lots of nice sleds, and lots of fun.
I like to start early just to avoid more night time driving. I've gone numerous times, but have never won any prizes.

I did a poker run once but it wasn't on a sled, it was in a Cessna. Had to fly to 7 different airports to get your 7 card hand (nothing wild). That was a blast but as I recall, didn't win anything. Didn't need to.

I think.... therefore I sled

I have only been on one poker run and it was a blast, 210 miles each way. It's called the Trek over the Top it is put on by the Tok Trailblazers & the Dawson Chamber of commerce (I think) You take the Taylor highway from Tok to Dawson. 1st Prize is $1000 I know cause I won last year. It's great to go on a ride gamble and have a good time in Dawson and then get a check that covers all your expenses when you get home.

Our club has a poker run every year, with 5 check points. It's a big money raiser for the club and the winners of the best card hands. After the run we have a cookout, and pot luck dinner. It really brings everyone together, not just club members but we hope they will join.
