That's right folks!
We are going to have the 1st annual north west International Harvester poker run.
It May be a little short notice but still plenty of time to make plans to attend.
The weather has been absolutely gorgeous up here and I just felt like others need to see the beautiful scenic whidbey island where I call home. If you are looking for it on the map then go north of seattle but turn left on 20 before you hit bellingham. If you hit the canadian border you went a little too far.
If your coming from the north eh just drive thru bellingham where you get your gas and groceries eh, and then turn right on 20 and take it right into oak harbor.
The plan is to get together in the morning for some good old fashioned meet and greet time. A little fender racing and some "there we were" stories.
We will be gathering at wind jammer park which is right on the water. There's a playground for the kids and a several ball fields to play in.
Lunch will be served at around noon.
Then the scenic drive begins.
Keep in mind that a poker run is not a race. It's more a scavenger hunt, but the only thing your looking for is the beautiful scenery and finding the hidden IH to pick up your next card.
You May want to bring some hiking boots for some of the worlds best trails.
Once you are done with all the stops along the way you return to the park.
The person with the best hand wins.
If anyone would like to stay around after we can all head out for dinner at one of the local establishments, and if you would like to stay longer, I'm sure some primitive accommodations can be provided.
Designated drivers all always available!!
Where: windjammer park, oak harbor, wa 98277
when: 25 May 2013...that's right, this month. The weather is perfect and it's a 4 day weekend. Come spend some time enjoying the company of fellow ihr's.
Stay longer if you want.
Cost: absolutely nothing. Gas is expensive enough. There no need to pay money to meet fellow ihr's.
There is an optional $5 buy in for the poker run. All funds will go back to the winners with the best hands. Or maybe some to the guy with the IH that doesn't make it. but I do have a garage and a few parts rigs should someone need assistance.
