Corned Beef & Cabbage Poker Run Mar. 18th

Postby Cherpa » Mon Mar 13, 2017 12:50 am

A.A.O.F. is having their annual Corned Beef & Cabbage Poker Run on Sat., March 18, 2017. We are located 7.5 miles west of
SR 997 (Krome Ave.) on US 41 (Tamiami Trail). Come and ride in "YOUR" Everglades National Park. This is
next weekend. Let's see if all those "Pretty Boats" from the Broward Co. Airboat show can run. First boat out @ 10:00 am.
We grow too soon old and too late smart.

Hate to sound stupid but never been on an Airboat poker run so I'm curious as to what the procedure is and how its done. Ive done helicopter poker runs where we were given coordinates to buckets placed on the ground and we found them and landed, took an envelope and looked for the next one . Five buckets, five cards, then we all met back where we left from and seen who had best hand to win a prize so am I on the right track here?

We run a course behind the AAOF in the Everglades National Park with 4 stops, where you draw a card for each hand you buy. The fifth card is drawn back at the club. It's about 3-4 beverages long...depending how thirsty you get along the way.
Go to the AAOF.com site and you can see pictures from previous years.

Gladescat; how is the course laid out, will I need a GPS, do they pass out maps, or what? I'm trying to be prepared for this but not sure what to expect. Ive never run in the glades just lake Okeechobee so I don't want to be a lost pup in tall weeds.lol

Lwells there is a map on each poker hand sheet, there will be plenty of boats to follow if you wish to do that. A GPS is never a bad idea but if you normally don't use one then U probably don't need one for that day.

PJC there should be enough water skinny as it may be, I will try and get out Thursday for water report.

It's great people and good times (food, riding and live music something for everyone). :proud: :old_glory:

Rough Shot is the band that will be playing. Great group, if you've never heard them. Booked solid, but they're spending the day with us.
