BP Poker Tournament/Fundraiser

    BP Poker Tournament/Fundraiser (Texas Hold 'Em)

    This is a private message that I sent to a hand full of members late Friday afternoon. I wanted to get a good feel for how much interest there would be in such an event before presenting it to the public. The response I received was positive so I figure it's time to move forward. If you weren't one of the original members that I PM'ed this to, please don't take it to mean anything, I just wanted to get the ball rolling as soon as possible. <O:p</O:p
    Since writing this private message we have decided to hold the tournament the weekend after the spring game, which would be Saturday April 29th at 3979 Parkway Ln. Hilliard, Ohio 43026. Dinner will start at around 6:00PM with the tournament beginning at 7:00pm sharp. <O:p</O:p

    The location of the tournament is very convenient and is near I-270 and a Motel 6 is within walking distance should anyone need to get a room for the evening.<O:p</O:p

    We still need help with setting up the event, so if anyone is interested please PM me. I will probably be there at 2:00 or so to begin getting everything in order. We also need decks of cards and poker chips. If anyone knows of a place to get those very cheap or of anyone who can donate, that would be great.<O:p</O:p

    I would like to make it clear that this is not a BP members only event, and everyone is welcome. It is important however that everyone understands what we are trying to accomplish with this event, and that it is encouraged but not mandatory that you donate some or all of your winnings if you win.

    I think a medal of some kind could be proudly displayed by one's username as bragging rights to the rest of BP should the winner be a member.

    Just a thought.

    That's a great idea and I don't think it would be a problem to do once the medals are up an working again.

    I understand that all of this is a little short notice, but I need to have an R.S.V.P list by this week that way we can get all of the food ordered. If at all possible, let me know in this thread or by PM if you can make it and if you are bringing anyone with you. Those of you who have already returned a PM from my original invitaion, please confirm that you are going to be there either by PM or in this thread.

    Thanks everyone.

    It is a dance studio owned by a family member of one of our members. He is unselfishly letting us use the building for free.

    I am working with my calendar as we speak (the fiance). With my wedding 2 months away I just have to make sure there is nothing already planned that day. If not... I AM THERE!

    EDIT - After reading it a second time, if I can make it I have about 20 deck of cards I can bring and I do have 1,000 poker chips. Will PM SIMV after I determine if I am 100% coming.

    Apparently telecommuting to the game is not permitted. :grr:

    And all it would take is someone to read off the cards... what could go wrong with that plan???
