Every poker run I have done, had nothing to do with speed in any way. You drove to a spot, drew a card and drove to the next spot, normally 5 stops. Top hand wins. We did it a lot with classic car runs years ago.
Actually we had one last year in our Palm Springs run.
Again on the Poker Run stuff, who ever promotes an event, will be responsible in the end. Something happens you will get dragged into court. That is just the way the system works, someone has to be responsible for your failure to use common sense.
Thanks Rob for getting this going, as directed I will work on the hotel stuff when I am there in a couple of weeks. The only real problem with this area, is that it is a gigantic tourist spot. A lot of history about mining, the million dollar highway. The high mountain tours between Ouray, Silverton and Telluride. They plow the trails for the tour companies, not the off roaders. It is a huge business in the area. Hotel rooms are not what I would call reasonable by any means. I have never tried them in June though. Not many of the high passes are open that early, so the demand for rooms may not be as high.
The hotel site that I would suggest it the Best Western Twin Peaks. That will be my first choice for headquarters, but there are others close by. Twin Peaks has a large area in front of the Hotel, that we use as our main headquarters for the FJ 4 day event. It has adequate parking for well over 100 cars I am sure. I will check on the tent for the main site also.
The FJ community has donated money for local high school scholarships and to the Ouray High Mountain Rescue.
Ouray also holds world class level Ice Climbing competition in January. Ouray Ice Festival ? Ouray Ice Park
A 100 mile mountain bike ride that goes over Imogene Pass at over 13,000 feet.
The area is amazing in the summer and winter.
