    The Scuderia South Florida Poker Fun Rally II is beginning to pick up
    pace and we've landed two new sponsors just this week in the form
    of Exo Tech, which will provide a great service by having a
    mechanic riding along in a truck complete with racing trailer outfitted
    with all types of spare parts in case anyone has trouble along the route
    and Auto Couture, which is donating a set of tires to the cause.

    Exo Tech will also be going in on the catered breakfast with Cargraphic.

    Can you post directions on how to get to the starting point by taking either 95 or the turnpike? Last year the starting point was one of the stops along the way, but I was following everyone and have no idea of how to get there

    This year's starting point is Cargraphic which just moved into new digs. I've not been to the new place yet since they are literally just moving into their new headquarters now but the address is given on the registration form which is adequate for a Yahoo Map or Mapquest search.

    Cargraphic
    7640 N.W. 25th Street
    Doral, Florida 33122

    The unit number is provided on the registration form.

    There was a problem last year when we listed our sponsor TWC as being
    in Miami which threw off the Yahoo and Mapquest searches since technically
    they are in Doral as well.

    Is there anywhere along the way for someone interested in viewing the cars and meeting up with members? I went to the web site and it does not list where the event will be going during the course fo the morning. Is it only a short stop at each sponsor? Would it possible to join up with everyone at the end of the rally at Carcierge at the end?

    Thank you

    Just so you dont have to look, the rally starts at 9am w breakfast starting at 8 am.

    It would be great if everybody brings a pair of motorola walkie talkies so we can be organized on our run North. You can get those at Radio Shack

    We have 4 walkie talkies already. Any more will be welcome to be safe.

    There will be someone with a walkie talkie in each Group and we will have Fabio from ExoTech following the Rally along with his truck and racing trailer
    full of parts, gas and parts for any emergenices. His contact information will be provided on the Rally Route directions.

    Those whom are interested are welcome to come to The Carcierge to see the cars and take part but we do ask for $50.00 as this is a charity event.

    The Rally Route will only be revealed the morning of the event for privacy and
    security reasons for our participants and guests.

    FYI
    Did anyone realize that the Poker Fun Rally was scheduled around Fashion Week in Miami... When models from around the country converge upon Miami by the 1000's

    : )


    Another reason to join in on the fun!!

    do not have yours.
    Better bring a filled out form tomorrow and a check. Once your check comes in we will send it back to you.

    Don't know why everybody waits till last minute. Next year we will have a deadline a week in advance. How should we plan for food if you guys can not make up your mind. <sigh>

    Okay last count as of Friday night 9pm:

    We have 52 people confimed! There are several more that are coming to the rally tomorrow and will pay last minute entry fees.

    If we get enough entries tomorrow we are going to break open another deck of cards.

    As it stands right now there is $3500 raised for Charity. The organizers have decided to split some of the prizes and offer some of them for direct auction bid. They will be available on a desk at Carcierge for direct purchase. Again, all funds raised are given direct to the Charity. So if you would like to bid direct on a gift certificate you can do so. I know I will.

    There will still be lots of great prizes for grabs for poker hands. Cheating has been eliminated this year.

    We are all looking forward to tomorrow and to be able to break $4000 in donations. This will be matched 50% through the MacCormick Foundation, which means we will raise upwards of $6000 for Children tomorrow.

    This has been made possible through the tireless effort of Barton Workman, Scott Saidel at the Carcierge and others that have given their time for this event. Of course a major Thank You to the Sponsors of the Rally. We will post a final recap with pictures etc. tomorrow or Sunday.

    Stay tuned.
