Sunday's Poker Run Information
Get that '55-'57 Chevy ready to DRIVE at
Lone Star '36'
The Poker Run can accommodate an unlimited number of '55-'57 Chevys and each person in each car gets one hand if they chose. Two runs will be conducted to accommodate the expected number of cars, both meeting at 10AM on Sunday morning. After some instructions, directions, collecting funds and selecting of the first card, the first group will leave promptly and arrive in the special parking area in Roanoke, Texas to enjoy a fantastic lunch at the 'Official Unique Dining Capital Of Texas' . Small groups will leave the hotel in a staggered timeframe to minimize congestion and confusion. There is a 3 hour window of time allowed for the actual driving and lunch stop, with no requirement to return to the hotel by a deadline, so ENJOY yourself at lunch and take your time!
Now for the best part of the Poker Run (besides a great lunch and
possibly winning a pocket full of cash) is the simple act of driving
your Tri Five Chevy with a big group of other Tri Five Chevys. The
Run will take participants through cities like Grapevine, Southlake,
Westlake, Roanoke, Keller and of course Irving. The route will
take back roads and the scenic way as much as possible. Along the
way you will see some outstanding homesteads, beautiful city parks, some
interstate driving, some winding hilly roads, and we will pass many
horse farms, famous Texas Longhorn cattle and even buffalo. All of
the roads are in good condition so a lot of thought and preparation has
been put into making this a great adventure for everyone!
The only 'get out of the car' stop is the lunch stop in Roanoke. Detailed maps will be provided to all participants along with emergency cell numbers in case someone gets 'misplaced'. It will be a good idea to have a designated driver and a separate designated navigator. Everyone in the car can play one hand so simply put, the more that play, the bigger the winnings!
