    I had my Fiberfab Chevy Hot Rod out last Satuday. Rushed getting out the door and forgot my sunscreen. It was col and sunny in the a.m. And warmed up to the high 70’s by mid day. It was a mystery clue poker run with the Arizona Kit Car Club.   I was the only kit car owner to bring out my car. We ended up at the Scottsdale International Auto museum. Well wort the $5.00 admission. Lots of cool cars and even a real sharp ’53 MGTD.

    Sounds like a blast. I wanna do a “poker run.” Actually I don’t know exactly what a poker run is….

    I got pulled over today by a guy in an SUV wanting to know all about Bridget. Said he had an MGA back in the day, and a Triumph, some others and now a Miata. Driving past the schools was like being in a parade.

    It’s about 70 here and windy–real windy. Coming up from downtown I practically had to duck under a flying mattress topper. Luckily the wind set it down next to the car instead of right on it.

    I’ve been on two different poker runs
    The first one met in a park. Everyone drew one card out of a basket. Drove to next stops with sight seeing historical or cultural significance drawing cards at each way station. 5th card at the casino and end of run in time for lunch. Prize for highest hand was a basket of car goodies. Lowest hand of all got pair of fuzzy dice or something.

    Second one met at park and ride lot for the metro rail and got 1st folded card in sealed envelope. All brought cash for a return trip downtown to the ballpark and Alice Cooper’s restaurant where where we had a semi- self guided tour of some of downtown all with clues to surroundings, not actual street names, real restaurant names or addresses. If you made it successfully to your corner you met a club member for 2nd card. Follows clues to new location and ride the light rail back to starting lot.
    Each stop gave you a new card and a set of clues to find the next one. Stopped at a popular park and some other place ending at the car museum for card #5. Phone call if you got lost forfeit one card. Museum entrance and prepared lunch ($5each) at museum tables, then tour after winners cash prizes $75/50/25 for top three hands. No card trading just straight 5 hand holdem. Our day was well planned and thought out by a hard working team.

    Enjoyed plenty of lime runs in college in the ’60s (yes, I’m that old!) with our campus Sports Car Club. I was usually the navigator, since I didn’t get my first set of wheels — a ’62 Sprite Mk II — until my junior year. In addition to watching for the lime marks, navigators on those nighttime runs on dark county roads in Southeast Texas also had to keep an eye out for stray cattle. Fun times.

    Lime runs. Apparently a road rally involving bags of lime or other markers to mark the route. The twist is, the lime bag or marker comes at a cross roads, and the driver doesn’t know which direction is right until they go another mile. If there’s another bag of lime there, then they guessed right. If not, go back to the last bag and guess again.

    Right?

    That sounds like a hoot. It would have to be out of the city, I think.

    1spot of lime on the side of the road means your on the right road. 2spots means turn ahead. 3spots means to stop and look for a hidden envolope ,which will give you more directions . Sometimes they have a poker run along with it.so there will be a card also.the course has a pre deter mend miles 50or 25 per say. Who has the closest miles wins.who has the best hand wins. It is usely a all day deal. Alot of fun though.
