Sail Poker With Kentrock on Sep 29!

Remember the Sail4Life Poker Run?

Well, Kentrock Messmer’s doing it again, this time just for fun!
My RL weather report says it’s raining on Saturday, Sep 29, so the best sailing will be online with Kent! Here’s Kentrock’s post about it:

FIYC Fun Run
Sailing Card Game at Sailors Cove
Saturday the 29th of September at 1:00pm SL time
DJ TheBrat from BWoR Radio will be spinning your fave sailor tunes and rocking your way around the sims…

We will start at the Club
This week we will kick off with a game of 5 card draw.
Any 32 prim boat with sails can play.
This is not a race but you can if you like.

How to play
Come to the club around 1:00PM and get a map of the card giver locations. I will put the start line in time trial mode for the people who want a time. There is no course, just sail to all 5 locations and click the big card. Once you have all 5 cards, come back to the club and party. At 2:00pm the Draw starts. You can discard up to 3 cards and draw new cards at the party. The best 5 card hand or hands get the prize at 3:00pm.

Here’s the “chart,” (its really just a bunch of short trip locations to get your cards).  You’ll get all the landmarks and much more if you show up at the FIYC clubhouse on Saturday, Sep 29 1:00pm SLT.

Kentrock says this simple sailing game is a lot of fun, even though there’s no race to win, and you don’t even need to take your clothes off.

(Well, I guess you can, if you want too… 🙂 )
