[20 June 2020 1730-2200z] Vancouver Island Poker Run

The 2020 Vancouver Island Poker Run starts at 10:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time (1730z) and runs until 3:00 PM (2200z). Within that time, land at as many of the five qualifying airports as you can and collect a poker hand. The top poker hands get bragging rights (and FS Economy prizes if you're part of that world).


The five airports are CYYJ, CYCD, CYAZ, CYQQ, and CYBL.


Fly IFR or VFR, it doesn't matter. Three of the fields are uncontrolled with an MF. There will be staff on the Flight Service Station frequencies at Nanaimo and Campbell River, and on the RCO frequency at Tofino. When you land at a qualifying airport between 1730z and 2200z and are clear of the maneuvering area, switch to the poker terminal frequency, advise your callsign and airfield, and request a card. Please be patient while the card is generated, recorded, and communicated to you before switching back to the appropriate frequency and starting your next flight.


The top hands will be announced on the poker terminal frequency shortly after 2200z. For pilots that participate as part of FSEconomy, there are prizes available.
