We want this to be a simple meet of friends from a forum that love HHR’s and w no big fees and all money being used for the meet. We want lots of times for sitting down and just visiting and will work out some places to go but I really want to just do a lot of meet and greet and get to know people.

Work with him ahead of time to get it so he will be ready to work on your HHR Poker or a Bean Run both days. We will do a Poker run one day or a Bean run both days w a $5 donation. The whole pot would be split 2 to 3 ways depending on how many participants. Award Plaques will be for best 2 to 3 hands as well for the winners each day depending on # of participants. Poker run- consists of stopping at designated points on your map and drawing a card at 7 different points. When you get back you turn in your cards and best 5 card hand wins. Top 2 to 3 winners will be announced at the Car show on Sunday and plaques awarded and the money in cash awarded at that time. You will be able to enter and pay for the Poker/bean runs ahead of time if you like to. Bean Run- consists of stopping at 7 designated points. You reach in and get a bean from each check point and pick any bean of the 13 to 15 available. Points for each bean and only the point counter will know the value of the beans. When you return after the run you turn in your beans in and your points will be tallied. Winners will be announced at the Car show on Sunday and plaques awarded and the money from the pot to the 2 or 3 winners. Treasure Hunt during both RT 66 runs on Friday and Saturday. Our Tom of TomsHHR is going to do a 2 day treasure hunt while on the run to Quapaw and Arcadia. There will be a 1st and 2nd Place winner. Details to follow Texas Holdem Poker Championship We will have a contribition amount to donate and chips will be given. Award Plaques will go to the top 1st and 2nd places. Friday Leave Tulsa from 9 to 11 and go NW to Quapaw on Old Route 66 starting from downtown, around 100 miles with 14 cities and the Will Rogers Museum along the way. Everyone will be furnished a map for both days with points of interest to see. So that would leave lots of time to stop a lot of time and spend the day looking and learning and having fun w a breakfast to start and then dinner at Quapaw. get on I-44 and head back or go back on RT66 w no stops to Tulsa and the hotel. Back at hotel, we will have a room at the hotel large enough to let everyone show up and chat and visit. Saturday Next day we depart between 9 - 11 to the SW to Arcadia leaving down Tulsa again with another 100 mile day w 15 towns to stop and look at and spend the whole day looking. Dinner will be in Tulsa or in Arcadia. On both drives back it would be 1.5 drive back to Tulsa to make a great day and end up back at the hotel for a short get together and visit both days.
