Successful Annual Poker Run – 2016

Bay Cities Poker Run

October 15th was a successful event despite the gusty windy conditions!

Our Annual Poker Run was Saturday, October 15th and it was  blustery day.  We had lots of enthusiasm from the aviation community and generated an additional $500 to add to our 2017 scholarship fund.  Thank you all for coming out and playing with us!


What is a Poker Flight?

A poker flight is a flying poker game. Playing cards are distributed in sealed envelopes at 5 different airports. Many players assemble at the designated “start” airport where each pilot and passenger buys a “hand”. This is not mandatory, your can begin at any airport you want.  Each player can buy as many hands as she wants.  Hands and/or extra cards can be bought at the “end” airport.

Each pilot flies to each airport, picks a card for each “hand” in her plane, and flies on to the next stop until all cards are picked up. Everyone meets up at the designated “end” airport to reveal their hands and claim their prizes.  RHV is our designated airport for this Poker Run.
