Poker Fun Run

Recommended Posts

... he is just starting to feel pressured by another Poker Player....

 

Yeah, like the rest of us, who are battling it out for ... like, 6th place or something!

 

:laughing:

After my trip out this last weekend, I'm starting to think that 6th place might be overly ambitious for me. I was just having no luck whatsoever. I'd find locations where I could find witness posts and not the benchmark, heck I found an access cover and still never found the benchmark once. Thoroughly disheartening, I'd hoped to collect a spare royal or two, plus the straight flush I need.

 

On a brighter note, I did end up on a cool forest road that weaved amongst the trees, just barely big enough for a single lane of traffic. I was astounded it was in my gps maps. (Of course, compared to the one I ended up on on the west side of the state last year that was in the gps maps, this one almost seemed like a major road). There just aren't enough of these types of roads in Michigan.

I have a question for A tapeworm, Why a 4 of a kind with all of those potential Royal Qs? Trying to make others jealous that Qs are that easy to come by? Or "Yes, Virginia, there are Qs - Plenty of 'em!"?

 

Also, He had to slow down for the biggest Deer on the road that I have seen! Please, let me have the pleasure of posting it here for him!

That should be in the rules! Bonus for funny pictures! Maybe next contest (if there is one).

Why a 4 of a kind with all of those potential Royal Qs?

 

Because, with a day job & gas here at $2.97 / gal, *potential* is often the best I'll achieve!

And now for breaking news, that is I am breaking into the discussion for a Stat break.

 

Enjoy.

How about some bonus scores? OK.

Oh, by the way, not much time left...lots of marks left - somewhere.

 

We are still enjoying the pictures. :laughing:

 

!Remember! If you want to be in the drawing for the signed book or other prizes - you have to have at least One Hand on the table, err, board.

 

Good hunting players!

Since I largely seem to be looking in some of the same areas as a tapeworm, I can say that there's suprisingly few lines here in michigan that seem to have the real potential for the royals. I'd have to look at my notes for the state, but most of those look like ones that aren't doable as royals anyways. (I often feel like I'm running around behind a tapeworm.)

!Attention! Only ONE week left!

I am just wondering who will come in last? Who is waiting till the very last to post?

 

Good hunting everyone.

PS, we had a really funny E-mail sent to us....

 

How about a booby prize for the first one to collect a full set of hands? B) This contest has really gotten "out of hand!"

Hmm, for some reason I was thinking I only had till the end of October. Guess I have a couple more days to at least try to get that straight flush, now I just have to find time to do that this weekend.

I think that it's strange that all of 2/3 Marine's vertical control disks have four places before the decimal. Most of mine only have two digits! I'm lucky to find one with three...

Didn't do as well as we might have today. Something about a dumb dolphin locking his keys in the car, and having to call AAA... ;) Been a lot of new and interesting places. (Okay, and a number of rather dumpy places...) Unintentionally, but, perhaps, appropriately, we ended up today in the old Mennonite area of northwest Jersey. Independence, Liberty and Hope. (Didn't get to Tranquility or Stillwater on this trip.)

Not sure what this has to do with benchmarking, but as I've been know to say: "Remember: The Land of Make Believe is in Hope, and not the other way round."

Thank you John & Shirley for all you hard work running the contest. Enjoyed it very much, and I sure do like those old benchmarks! Never thought when I recovered them that it would get me a prize.

Best photo, not showing a benchmark: Andy Bear at Hawks Nest. Rte 97, Orange County, New York. High above the Delaware River.

 

Wow! That is a beautiful spot! And that is a great idea to post any picture from your travels with the contest that any of you would like to share.

 

Thank you all for your kind words and we still need a couple of Snail mail addresses so we can send out the prizes.

Thanks John & Shirley for the contest. Got to see even more of Colorado this time around, which is half the fun with your contests. Some more counties will no longer be WHITE in NE Colo pretty soon, which is a bonus. Didn't think I would outlast the Dolphin!! Really could have used Andy Bear to help with the gas money.

Thanks John and Shirley for all of your hard work in putting this contest together. :laughing: Also thanks for your patience John in helping this newbie out with all of my questions about benchmarks and this contest. Before this contest started I had only found about a dozen benchmarks and found over 100 in the last 2 months. Also got to see and explore the country that was in my own backyard that I normally wouldn't have got a chance to see. :)

Prizes were mailed out today at 3 PM for those who had gotten their Snail Mail addresses to us. Jedi Cacher, yours will be mailed on Tuesday.

 

Rumpled and Ernmark, you need to send us your addresses or tell us you do not want your prize. Just shoot us a note.

Thanks John and Shirley for the prize and certificate. ;) That's too bad that you didn't get to join in the fun and have a shot at the prizes. Maybe next contest.

Got my autogrphed book, thanks mucho!

Too bad the oldfarts haven't even seen it.

I wouldn't have minded at all if you'd pawed thru it, QC inspection; you know?

 

I'd trust you guys to run the contest and be in it, too.

 

I'll see if I can do better at completing the next contest, whenever/whatever it is.
