This year's Poker Run 2012 will be held on Thursday, May 10th, 2012. All pilots, passengers and aviation lovers are invited to come out and enjoy flying fun this spring and support aviation in Mississippi.
This is an event that is hosted by the Mississippi Airports Association in conjunction with the annual Airports Conference beginning May 9th, 2012. Pilots, passengers, and aviation lovers are invited to register and attend this premier meeting for aviation business executives in the state. Those in attendance are airport directors and board members, engineers, consultants, and representatives from government and other aviation-related businesses. More information can be found online at http://msairportsassociation.com/annual_conference.html.
This is a variation on Texas Hold'Em. Attendees will travel to outlying airports (at least two, but as many as nine--which improves the odds of a good hand!) to collect one poker card per airport. Attendees will arrive at KGPT before 6:00 pm on May 10th and receive a final card.
Compose your best 5-card poker hand from the cards you collected plus any, all or none of the shared community cards. Since there are three community cards, participants will need to collect at least two (2) offsite cards to compose a playable hand. Collecting additional cards from other airports will simply improve the odds of creating a winning hand.
Participation from all of the airports / FBOs has been confirmed. No registration is required! Just fly out, get cards, and have fun. Mississippi Airports Association will be sending out enough cards to support up to (twenty-five) 25 participants, which should be more than adequate.
Depart your Airport and fly to at least 2 (two) other designated airports returning to and finishing at Million Air Gulfport-Biloxi KGPT Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport (Gulfport, MS).
