Roush Poker Run ~ Lacey WA

Roush at Capital

The Roush Poker Run was held Sept 24th in Lacey, WA. Five club vehicles met at the Ridgefield exit at 8 AM and headed to Lacey where the poker run was to get underway at 10 AM. Another member met up with the group at the Centralia exit and drove into Lacey making a total of nine NW Mustangs and Classic Fords members attending. The group pulled into Huntamer Park around 9:45 and met up with the other owners and drivers. Shortly after 10 AM the procession left the park and proceeded to the first stop. Having never actually been to the state Capitol building before, it was a treat to get that close to it. A great photo opportunity was presented, allowing us to line up all our cars for a nice picture in front of the Capitol. As luck would have it, the weather was in our favor that day as well!

The tour left the Capitol and wound its way towards Aberdeen, stopping at a casino and a gas station to hand out cards. The final card of the five was given at 5 Star Ford in Aberdeen where the group was provided lunch. There was a couple opportunities during the drive to 'let the ponies run' along the way and everyone arrived in Aberdeen with big smiles on their faces. After lunch everyone gathered in a conference room for awards and a trivia game. Prizes were handed out for the game, and then they got down to the poker hands. The winning hand was two pair and a beautiful Roush die cast model was given along with some other Roush swag including a hat, a mouse pad and other Roush branded items. Then came the most anticipated and sought after award; the WORST poker hand. Fortunately, with his outstanding card playing skills, Ken won this award handily with a single '9' card being his best hand! Better yet, the prize for the WORST hand was the same as the first place hand! Awesome!
