99s First Canadian Chapter Poker Run Coming Up

The First Canadian Chapter of the 99s, the women pilots association is coming up in two week's time, on 16 June 2012. The rain date is 17 June 2012.

The event is open to anyone who flies.

Each Poker hand costs $5 or $20 for 5 hands. Hands can be sold to anyone. Pick up some for your friends.

Start at one of the designated airports and buy the hands. Draw the first card at the starting airport.

An aircraft may 'fly' as many hands as they wish. The person to whom the hand was sold does not have to fly in the aircraft to be eligible for a prize.

Fly in any sequence to four more of the designated airports (including the terminus).

At each airport give the hands to the attending 99 and then draw one card per hand. The 99 will randomly staple a card (in two places), to each of the hands, then will stamp and initial the card.


Fly to the terminus airport by 2:30 p.m., draw the last card and hand in the poker hand for judging.

Judging will be according to standard Draw Poker. The judges’ decision is final.

The person who ‘flies’ a winning hand is responsible for picking up the prize at the terminus and delivering it to the owner of the winning hand.

The participating airports are:

  • Burlington CZBA
  • Brampton CNC3
  • Buttonville CYKZ
  • Lindsay CNF4
  • Greenbank (grass) CNP8
  • Peterborough CYPQ
  • Lake Simcoe Regional CYLS
  • Oshawa CYOO
