Murfreesboro Aviation has announced that they will be hosting a flying poker run on Saturday, March 18, 2017.
The event is open to all qualified pilots, their families, and passengers. A poker run consists of participants flying to each airport where they will randomly choose one card from a standard deck of playing cards available from an attending representative at that airport. They may fly to the airports in any order but the last airport will be Murfreesboro Municipal (KMBT). Murfreesboro Aviation will have their hangar open to the participants along with food and refreshments.
At 2:30 pm the participants will present their cards as a poker hand. The best hand wins! The cost to enter is $50 per hand (you may buy more than one hand), with Murfreesboro Aviation adding $250 to
the final pot. The winner will receive half the pot with the other half going to THE CHILD ADVOCACY
CENTER OF RUTHERFORD COUNTY.
The Child Advocacy Center is a non-profit agency that serves child abuse victims, child sexual abuse victims, and drug endangered children, along with their non-offending parents, grandparents, and family members. The poker run includes the following airports; Shelbyville Municipal (KSYI), Tullahoma Regional (KTHA), Warren County Memorial (KRNC), Lebanon Municipal (M54), Murfreesboro Municipal (KMBT). This is not a race but a fun event to raise money for THE CHILD ADVOCACY CENTER OF RUTHERFORD COUNTY and to kick off the flying season. While the event is open to all pilots, their families, and passengers, participants must register in advance, so Murfreesboro Aviation encourages everyone to see the rules and regulations at the link http://murfreesboroaviation.com/index.php/2017/02/02/murfreesboro-aviation-poker-run-rules-2017/
