Write Up:
What a great day for a hike. The sun was shining and the temps were perfect. We all gathered at the start and everyone decided how many hands they wanted to play. Then each person drew 3 cards for each hand played. By about 10:30am everyone had finished drawing their first round of cards and we were off on the hike. Though there had been plenty of recent rains, the trails were not as muddy as I expected them to be which made the start of the hike much more enjoyable. We hiked about 5 miles through Gunpowder Park, past one of Glenn’s favorite swimming holes, across many streams, and finally arriving back at the cars where everyone drew their last 2 cards.

The winners for today’s event:
1st place – Diane with 2 pair (This was Diane’s second event with MOC)
2nd Place – Jeff with a pair of Aces
3rd place – Jennifer with a pair of Kings, Queen high (Jennifer’s first event with MOC)
4th place – Glenn with a pair of Kings, 6 high

Congratulations to the new members of MOC. Both Jeff and Jennifer donated their winnings back to the club (thank you both again). With the donations from today’s event and the winnings donated back to the club by Jeff and Jennifer, MOC raised $82. This will help a lot with the MOC operating costs.

Thanks to all that came it and really big thanks for the donations to MOC. It is people like you that will help keep the MOC running strong.

I really enjoyed the event (and learned a lot as well). I hope everyone else enjoyed the day as much as I did. Hope to see you on another MOC event soon.
