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.  HWD is our designated airport for this Poker Run.
