Start at Rum River at 6:00pm then go to any bar your wish, do it in any order you like, but be back for check in at Whiskey River by 9:00pm!
Participants must visit all 5 locations. Once signed up at the starting place players will be given their first card in a sealed envelope. Players will visit the other locations and will draw a sealed playing card at each establishment. Players must not open their envelopes until the end of the game. The object is to have the best poker hand at the end of the run. The event has a time limit, however the participants are not timed—winning is purely a matter of chance. See complete rules at bottom of page. Event coordinated by Bayou Business Association.
