Poker runs OH MY!!!! I've done so many of those it was unreal....Some clubs used like empty wooden coke cases with ping pong balls, each of the 24 holes had a different value, draw a card at the next stop, then throw a dart at the next stop, etc...Some of those poker runs were something else...Our club had a hidden object game, you couldn't ride 500 mph, because you needed to keep it at a sane pace...
Example one of the "Hidden objects" was on the "Clue List" as "Three steps to nowhere"....At one time there was this house on the side of the road, the rose bushes were still there, and quite pretty I might add, but all was left of that house was the concrete steps up to the porch...Three steps to nowhere..!!!!!!
Now everyone might near carries a digital camera so taking a picture would work...But with any poker run, you will need people to volunteer to man the different stops...There used to be a motorcycle club at one of the bases in San Antonio, Texas, This club gave away some really fantastic prizes, each stop on that 300 mile ride was something different...They gave away 20 trophies....First place was like a $2000.00 Savings bond, along with like a set of riding gear....Top 10 places it was money, a very nice trophy,and something for your bike...10th through 20th was like a $50.00 saving bond and a verynice plaque...
My wife won 9th place I won 10th place, we came home with two savings bonds, and two nice trophy's, I also won "Best Dressed bike" in my class, and we won "Best dressed couple"...We had some really nice outfits, won several contests with those suits..
So it doesn't have to be just straight cards it can be different things....
