Why should I expect to know how it is handled now, unless I paid the entrance fee, I'm not sure it's any of my business how the payout is handled.
I live in Ottawa, I knew this Poker Run was happening because some of my NJ friends had been invited, I forgot about the date, and didn't realize it had happened until after it was over.
There was no public press releases trumpeting the fact that there was going to be a large charitable donation, so how is it anybody's business now except for the people who stroked the cheques for the entrance fees.
If you paid, and won and you have a concern about the way the prizes (money for you, money for your charity) were handled then take it up with PRA, if not then don't worry about it. If you want a say, then ask for an invitation to next years run, and stroke the cheque for the entry fee. (which to my knowledge has never been a public amount - invitation only)
It just seems that sometimes people are looking for an excuse to pile on. Of the people in this thread that have voiced concern over the handling of the payout how many were at the Casino Run, or any PRA run ever?
