About the event

This event will take us back in time as we will visit four Maritime Museums in the Port Huron area, giving us a view of water travel history.  At each museum, each registered car will receive a card from a new card deck. At our final stop for lunch, you will receive the fifth card. to complete your poker hand. With 5 decks of cards, it is possible to have some unusual hands and several versions of them. To break ties, we will use the ranking of suits in official US poker rules. 1-Spades, 2-Hearts, 3-Diamonds, and 4-Clubs. The car with the best poker hand will be the winner. We are trying to negotiate one month’s use of a reconditioned (almost new) Jaguar or Land Rover vehicle. If a slightly used Jaguar car is not available from the dealer, we need a backup plan. The backup plan is that each car would be charged an entry fee of $20, so have the exact cash available with you. The entire entry fee goes to the best poker hand.

We will meet at the Fort Gratiot Light Station, 2802 Omar, Port Huron, MI. 48060 at 10 AM when it opens. From there we will drive to the other three Maritime Museums.
