After a day of traveling the rural roads of Baltimore County, Carroll County, and Southern Pennsylvania, looking for roadside objects listed on the 2019 Poker Run sheet, event manager Al checks in event participants at the final stop: Friendly Farm Restaurant.

Everyone assembled for lunch, and a program to announce the event's winners.

President Paula welcomed everyone...

... and Al announced the agenda for the afternoon.

With announcements concluded, everyone lined up for a delicious meal.

And who held the highest poker hands?

It was Team Stershic - Mark and Mary...
Team Hack - Phil and Shelley, and...
Team Krupinski - John and Lois

Next, for all to see, Al displayed photos on the screen, of the various roadside objects to have been identified.

Participant's answer sheets were randomly distributed for calculating the highest scores, as Al revealed the "correct" responses. Sometimes comments ensued: "I see four antennas, not three." "How about the antenna on the car in the photo?"

 photo
After suffering some good-natured ribbing, Al instructed the answer sheets to be talleyed up and winners announced: (Left to right)
Team Garland - Owen and Wanda
Team Wilmer - Gary and Vicky
Team Abretts - Jody and Jane
Team Ruby - Gary, Jr and daughter Shannon.

When you experience "car difficulties" during a Chesapeake Region event, there's always the chance of winning the event's "Hard Luck" award" With condolences, the 2019 Poker Run award was presented to Henry Chaudron, Sr and Carol Sorrell, who at least made it to our event's last, most-important stop..

An enormous amount of work goes into planning and conducting an event such as this Poker Run. Our sincere thanks to Al Zimmermann, Tom Dawson and others of his 2019 Poker Run team who spent many hours putting this all together. It was great fun!!!
