[EVENT] Sunday 1/25/04 - ZSE's Puget Sound Poker Run

Recommended Posts're just 5 days away from some awesome IFR action up here in the Northwest.If you haven't heard about this great event, you need to check it out!Here's a bit about the event.Many pilots participated in last May's Puget Sound Passion, an event thatfeatured VFR traffic between six Sound-area airports. We wanted to revisitthe fun of last year, but with a little twist... This year's event will follow the popular 'Poker Run' format, similar tomany general aviation and even non-aviation events held in the real world.The idea is thus: Pilots will fly IFR (it is January and the Northwest, after all) between5 Puget Sound-area airports, starting at 1300 PST / 2100Z. We'll providecontinuous high-quality ATC coverage, of course. Each time a pilot lands,they will be 'dealt' a card by one of our controllers, who will keep trackof who has what cards. Since we're staffing 5 airports for the event, eventuallyall pilots'll have 5 cards and thus will have a poker hand. Once the eventis over (1700 PST / 0100Z), we will compare the poker hands of each pilotand determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places! Then what? Bragging rights, right? Well, a little bit more... 'cause we gotsome very, very, nice prizes we're itching to give away to some lucky pilots.Visit the event's website at, and read up on thematerials you'll need for the big day. This will be a huge event! We'll see ya January 25th! If you haven't already, join our events mailing list and be the first toknow about events! Visit tojoin!
