    This is a Poker Run, which means you'll cruise to different spots, and when you get there, you'll get a playing card. At the end of the run, you'll trade in your "hand" and if you have a winning poker hand, you'll win the pot. The rest usually goes to Charity.

    They are cool, but a road one isn't great amounts of fun. If it's a pre-war event, or some kind of specialist event (Lotus club does it all the time) then it's fun. But what am I going to have in common with a Viper owner when I run my Brat ?

    Boating poker runs are also cool. They island hop with cards, that's a cool time.

    its a good time to drive around for 3 days and meet new people.

    you'd be suprised how much you have in common with a viper owner. he started out somewhere too. But, i doubt there will be any there. This will be more common folk than any big-dollar gumball like cars showing up. i think it will be fun.

    i think i'll kidnap steve as my co pilot... he gets married a couple weeks after that so it will be a great last weekend of fun with the bros before [​IMG] lol

    Let me start by saying. Thank you for the support and I hope to see some of you in the New England Rally.

    Now..

    Hey all, I'm Sean. The host of the New England Rally and I'd like to answer a question I've been seeing come up now and then.
    It seems some people don't understand what it takes to run an event of this size.




    I'm curious how you figure this.

    Do you have any idea how much it cost to run an event like this?



    Ok First...

    prizes for awards

    And much much more.. I think you get the point though.

    So in short,

    No I'm not making anything off this event, but if by some chance I do cover expenses I will donate the profits to the Boys and Girls clubs in the towns (or local to the towns) we use.

    I'm actually paying thousands of dollars out of my own pocket so people can have a blast at my expense.

    If you'd like to join us.. you are welcome to.. if not then best of luck in life to you, but we are going to have a great time.

    Be well,
    Sean Conrad
