Smoky Mtn. Poker Run May 18, 2019

Saturday, May 18, 2019
Event Type: 

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, we have a Poker Run planned.  For those not familiar, a poker run is an organized event where participants drive a predetermined route, stopping at five checkpoints along the way to draw a playing card.  The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the drive.

We will meet at the Steinmart Parking lot in Farragut (11437 Kingston Pike) at 11:00 AM. Everyone will be provided with a map and detailed driving directions. Following a briefing and drawing their first card, cars will begin departing at 11:30 AM.  Rather than everyone leaving at the same time, participants will depart every 2 minutes.

The 68 mile route will take everyone through Lenoir City, Greenback and the beautiful Foothills Parkway (including the newly opened section) and finally into Wears Valley and Elvira's Cafe.  We have reservations for a late lunch at Elvira's and awarding of the winning hand!

The cost of this event is $15 per person. Both driver and passenger can play a hand. Proceeds from this event will be directed to the Kingswood Home for Children.

For planning purposes and to let Elvira's know how many to expect, we'd like to start pulling together a roster.  If you plan to attend, please email Bob & Penne Baugh at and let them know how many will be attending and buying a hand.  

Lastly, we still need to staff two checkpoints. These must be staffed in order for this event to occur.  If you can work, please let them know.
