Scubadillo Poker Run
August 9, 2014 @ 10:00 am
Put on your scuba mask and look in a mirror to practice getting your �poker face� all set for this Saturday�s Annual Scubadillo Dive Club Poker Run at Clear Springs Scuba Park.� The festivities begin at 10 AM with a �workshop� on Search and Recovery techniques to improve your ability to find lost objects and then the safe way to bring them to shore. We will be covering compass search patterns, rope techniques for accurate searches, setting up search areas and dive plans, plus discuss the use of lift bags and other items to move heavy objects.
We will then break for lunch and fire up the grill for some club-sponsored hot dogs, but you are welcome to bring some other item for the grill since we have it fired up. We also like to have a �pot luck� lunch for side items if everyone would bring something to share with other Dillo participants.
After lunch, we will hold our Poker Run event where dive buddies compete underwater during a specified time frame to put together the �best of five� cards for flushes, straights, full house, or multiples of one card (four of a kind, three of a kind, etc.). Standard Hoyle poker rules for five-card draw apply. Divers will search our game area for special plastic-coated cards that are attached multiple lines stretched out along the bottom. Grab your first five cards and then improve your hand taking a new card and then putting one back on the clip where you found the new card. Participants are constantly changing out cards so you have to keep searching the game area to find those winning cards.
Participants will be given a raffle ticket and participants with the top hands getting additional raffle tickets. Additional tickets can be purchased at $5 each. Each prize will have a container to place your ticket(s), so you can choose which prize you want to try to get. You must be a current paid member of the Scubadillos in order to participate in the Poker Run. If you are not a current member, then we are offering prorated memberships for the rest of the year that are only $20 and cover our future activities this year. Standard entry fee to Clear Springs Scuba Park of $20 for each diver still applies. Bring a chair to relax in and socialize with us during this fun day of activities. See you there!
