2017 Poker Run - 10-03-2017, 03:02 PM

One of the Club's most fun events, the annual Poker Run is scheduled for Saturday, October 21. The run will start at 11:30 a.m. at the Firewheel Mall in Garland and continue for 93 miles to Princeton, TX, where we will have lunch. The winner will get $50. You will need a navigator, as it will be unsafe to try and drive and look at a map at the same time. Come one, come all!

Thanks for posting this Robert. We will meet at the East parking lot for AMC theater, right next to Friday's. Be sure to have a full tank of gas. We will have a short driver's meeting and then go. I think we will have 2-3 navigators available for those who may need one. This years run will be about 90 miles and take about 2.3 hours. The roads are good. Again this year, both drivers and navigators will be able to play Poker for cash. If anyone has and younger children or grandchildren who like animals, this Poker Run route has lots of them to see.

Please post up here or on Facebook so I can plan for the group and tell the restaurant how many are coming.

Here are the general instructions for the Poker Run. Please read.

Tour Instructions 2017

Strongly recommend a Navigator
Have full tank of gas
If your car is lowered, drive something else.
Read Ahead !

Same format as previous years
Approx. 2.3 hours long, 93 miles
Reset odometer after reaching the distance called out after last reset

Anyone need explanation on how this works?

Odometer reset point is the commonly accepted stopping point for an intersection. Normally a painted line in the road or a line even with the stop sign or traffic signal.

Read Ahead !!

There is a dip at 0.9 miles on FM 522.
Don’t cut corners on the inside - can be drop-offs.

“This is neither a speed nor a timed event. Ford Performance Club of North Texas recommends seat belts be worn and that traffic laws be observed at all times”.

Steve Derda reported on facebook that he and his son will be there as well.

I will be present, serving as the navigator for Johnny Perez.
