On Sunday, August 11th, the Tom Carpenter Poker Run will entail a scenic ride through the Comox Valley including a stop on our beautiful Mt Washington. There will be a terrific buffet provided by Mt. Washington Alpine Resort at a reasonable cost, and a free ride up the ski lift for the driver OR the passenger to get the fourth card....so bringing a light jacket is advisable, as it might be a bit cool while enjoying the breathtaking scenery. Five cards will be given at five locations. At each location there will be an extra prize on view at each table. Dropping a loonie in the metal can provided will get you a draw for that prize at the end of the run. Also all five cans will be consolidated for a sixth consolation prize. The final card will be collected at the Cumberland Hotel, where you can also purchase, if you choose, two option cards at $5 each. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the Poker Run, as well as the lowest hand, so don't give up! There will also be MANY other raffle prizes available at the last stop.
