I am going to try to get some sort of prize from my job to see who can make it there the fastest. I would like to cruise together at some sort of semi-legal speeds. I have also talked with Orlando, the organizer, and he has everything from Lambo's, Ferrari's and some high end MB's showing up. Should be pretty intersting.

The hosting Hotel is the Boca Raton Resort and club. The phone number is 800.327.0101 . You should mention you are with 6SPEEDONLINE.com for a discounted rate.

Re: Poker Run ~ Boca Raton Fl. June 4th-6th (KEINREISAIRKEWLD)

update from the show organizer:

Here is a general update given to me by one of the head organizers:
"Ok guys, I met with the event planner, hotel security, and guest relations this morning at the Boca event, and if you think other events have been big, well this is going to top them all!!!!! We are talking an entire top of a parking garage (room for 75-100 depending on spacing), on site detailing, overnight security, bars, snacks, tents, tables...ITS GOING TO BE HUGE!!!!!
Directions once inside the gate of the hotel (yes its gated):
You will come to the guard gate where you will tell him you are with the Porsche event. He will also give you these directions, but just in case here they are....
Make the first left after the gate house (do not go through the gates unless you want to drop luggage off at the lobby). Follow that road along the golf course all the way to the back where there will be a 5 story parking garage on your right. Stay on the road and go around the parking garage untill you see the entrance where there will be a security guard assisting. Our parking is the top level of this garage on the roof on the right half (if we need more space we get the rest). Also if there is room on the 4th level (and there should be) you can choose to park in the garage...
Make your reservations if you have not already!! The show, poker run and cocktail party are going to be awesome!!! Make sure you bring sunscreen as well as all events are outside (including cocktailparty). Also transportation will be provided to Morton's Steakhouse Sat. evening so no worries about driving... If you have any specific questions or concerns please email either Orlando or I ([email protected]).

Re: Poker Run ~ Boca Raton Fl. June 4th-6th (KEINREISAIRKEWLD)

We finallized the Poker Run today, so here is all the information about it!!!
It will begin at 2:00PM (Sat.) at the Boca Resort with the first card given out there as you leave. The run should take between 2-3hours and will end at the Resort again. There will be 4 check points between where you will recive a card at each. These combined with the first one given at the hotel will equal 5 cards. When you return to the hotel at the end someone (probably me) will be waiting for you. At this point they will check your "hand" and write down your name and what your poker "hand" is. Once everyone has returned we will go through the list and determine the winner!! You do not have to be the fastest to win, just have the best hand when it is all said and done!!
The directions will be given out "gumball style". This means you will not recieve directions to the check points at the begining, instead you will recieve each at the check point before so you will have to figure out the route quickly when you recieve it (no time to plan ).
I and other FVD employees will be handing out the cards at each location so everyone else can participate!!
See everyone soon!!!
PS-A bunch of us will be going indoor Kart racing Friday night anyone that would like to join us is welcome to, it is about 10-15mins from the resort...

Is there a set limit on attendees? Sounds fun, just wondering how many decks of cards you have

Re: Poker Run ~ Boca Raton Fl. June 4th-6th (Cronic)

There is 4 days to the run... I do not want this to be a pure porsche event so bring your Dub or Audi or whatever german auto you own and have fun. The run leaves the Boca Raton Resort & Club 2:00pm sharp.

SEE YA THERE!!!

Re: Poker Run ~ Boca Raton Fl. June 4th-6th (Maflagulator)

You are with the poker run crew is all you have to say... I have a 2.0 Jetta and am going to be in the run as well as a friend of mine that has a BMW... You are here for the poker run. If you need a name to use, Orlando is one of the organizers.

Call me on Saturday. I should be showing up around 12:30ish.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.
