Well, instead of idling one hour to the next stop (which I would have made the deadline) and then 2 1/2 hrs back (in the dark and in unfamiliar waters), I decided to take the short cut back to the marina. After loading up, we headed out to the awards dinner to pick up my last card & give them my hand.
No, no, no.....................I didn't complete the run 100% so I was disqualified.
I have NEVER heard of such a thing at ANY poker run I have ever attended.
I'm glad they still send me sign up info, It makes great kindling in the fireplace!
Billy Frenz & Stu Jones know alot more about customer relations
I disagree with the "gotta make all the stops" rule being "unfair" .... I think that part of a run adds to the "competition" aspect of the run . No, it's not a race , but you do have to "navigate" the course , and get back ect..... with all your cards . If you break down , you break down . Thats er.... "racin" so to speak . Better luck next time .

I'm for the don't have to complete every stop for good reason philosphy, but there has to be some form of measure to ensure the cheap-azz's don't short-cut it and save on the fuel. But then agian every run is differently setup for different reasons. Some/most are trying to generate funds for charitable cuases and the money is made form $$ spent at the parties and on entry fees, meaing everyone earns the right to draw and the run itself is more of a social activity for the day. Others are out to strictly party and divvy up the bounty to the luckiest both in draws and in boat reliability.
