A Poker Event Where Players Fly About in Planes and Pick Cards at Airports
Marie Donovan is the organizer of the Coyote Country chapter of The Ninety-Nines’ 14th Poker Run on Saturday. This will not be poker in the conservative sense. There won’t be any strategy involved and no betting. Players won’t be seated about a green table, instead they will sail through the sky. 40 planes will be zooming across, stopping for a short while at a few area airports. At each airport, the pilot will be picking up one playing card. The number of playing cards will depend upon the playing hands bought at the first airport. Poker hands cost $3. Pilots from San Diego area, the Inland Empire and the Los Angeles basin will be participating in this event.
The Poker Run is open to both men and women. To be eligible for a prize, participants must land at five airports.
