The VHA will sponsor a Golf Cart Poker Run from the Everglades Recreation Center on Tuesday, March 16 at 3:00 PM.  Cost of the Poker Run is only $10 per hand and cash prizes will be awarded.

Players should register by March 15 at MikeBurkeVHA@Yahoo.com

CDC guidelines will be enforced, with players being required to wear masks while inside the Everglades Recreation Center.  The event is being sponsored by The VHA and Florida Blue.  Players will receive instructions and card sheets at Everglades at 3:00 p.m. in the Grand Canyon Theater and then depart for four other sites to get their cards before returning to Everglades for the awarding of prizes and free ice cream cups.

Prizes will be awarded for Best Hand, Second Best Hand, and Worst Hand, and extra cards and Wild Cards will be available for purchase, as well as a 50-50 drawing.

A poker run is an organized event in which participants, usually using motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, boats, snowmobiles, horses, on foot or other means of transportation, must visit five to seven checkpoints, drawing a playing card at each one. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. Having the best hand and winning is purely a matter of chance.
