Last Sunday the club had a poker run from Atascadero to Sunday brunch at the Pozo Saloon. We went on a lot of windy roads in Templeton, Paso Robles, Shandon, Creston and Pozo. It's called a poker run because we were given 5 cards in a sealed envelope at the start. There were two checkpoints where you could exchange any cards to improve your hand. We ended up with three-of-a-kind-3s, but it wasn't good enough for a prize. The drive took about 2 hours. I was lucky to be invited as a passenger / navigator in Ken Finney's 2007 Carrera S. What a magnificently-handling car. I figured we were going into the ditch on several occasions but Ken's confidence in his brakes and foot-wide tires was spot on. Ken upgraded several parts of his car at Gary's shop. Sadly G-Rides is no more due to the economy but he went out with a great reputation in the Porsche and performance car fraternity.
Here is Ken and some pictures of the other 20 or so Porsches in the event.
