Poker Run

Hi all,

What better way to celebrate the arrival of fall (finally!) than a drive through the country? Even better is a Poker Run with fabulous prizes and a tasty meal at the end of the drive!

For those unfamiliar with a Poker Run, you get a playing card at the start, then amble through the countryside to three other places to pick up another card at each stop, then get your final card at the final destination. Each person in the car will build a "poker hand," to increase the fun. The person with the best poker hand at the end wins! 

We will start at Mercedes-Benz of Memphis at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 19. We will explain the rules and hand out route maps. Cars will leave in a staggered fashion and we will end up at the home of Cliff and Linda Reyle for dinner and prizes.

The middle point is Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs. Strawberry Plains is 3,000 acres that hosts an amazing amount of native plants and animals and is a migratory stop for hummingbirds. A portion of the $15 entry fee will be donated to them as a Thank You for allowing us to use their visitor's center.

Timeline & Locations:

1pm - 1st stop: Mercedes-Benz Memphis at 5389 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN 

Middle point stop:  Strawberry Plains Audubon Center in Holly Springs at 285 Plains Rd, Holly Springs, MS 38635

5pm - final stop & dinner: Cliff & Linda Reyle at 9568 Dove Meadow Cove E., Germantown, TN 38139

Come out for a nice fall country drive, hang out with your friends and support a very good cause!  If you can't make the poker run, please come and join us for the dinner at 5PM.
