Poker Run Sat. 23 Aug ’14

PAPA’s Poker Run date is next Saturday, August 23rd. We’ll meet with Rolf and other luminaries at the PAPA Hangar 0930 Hrs. After a flight briefing and the weather clears, we’ll fly to four other airports. You’ll receive a poker card at each airport and another one when you return for lunch a total of 5 cards–the highest hands win, and the Worst hand will also win something!

Poker hand

The route: Depart O69 and fly to Healdburg (KHES). Next up, Cloverdale (O60). The on to Ukia (KUKI). Finally Lampson (1O2), then return to Petaluma to pick up your fifth card.

The cost is $25 per hand. Rolf will have some brats on the BBQ and PAPA will provide the coals for BYOB (Bring Your Own Beast). The forecast looks nice so bring your luck & your lunch fixings and come have a great day flying with PAPA.
