I had a great time meeting all of you yesterday. Thanks to Nate and everyone that helped to organize the event.

My brain is still hurting from some of the wacky Omaha based games we played. Though that really made it interesting and made me more likely to play in some mixed games in the future.

The chips were nothing short of amazing as well. Some really nice Paulsons and CPC set got some felt time. I'm REALLY tempted to order some CPC small crowns now. Hope to see all of you again.

What an experience! I feel very fortunate to be able to attend and meet all of you. My only regret was not being able to be there longer. First time I played poker on the edge of a cliff! I know a lot of the circus games but learned a bunch of new ones also. The new ones I learned are probably a little too much for my group, but fun nonetheless. Got to play with so many great chip sets and chippers, hopefully we can do it again.

What an incredible venue for a weekend of cards! Appreciate all the pics, looks like it was a blast. :tup:
Absolutely agree but man a group photo with names would have been nice... or maybe I missed it?

Seriously who is tattoo Jesus... and this guy might be related to me? Lol

The big dude is my twin brother... so funny that we have been collecting buttons together for a couple years now and never seen a pic.

So who is tattoo Jesus? And for the record I will pass the torch as I have since cut my Jesus hair! Lol

Thank you to everyone who showed up and participated and congratulations on not getting yourself stranded on a random hilltop after following your GPS on a road to nowhere. @wonderpuddle, @TricycleClub, and @WhiteMamba1646 were a huge help in bringing tables, chairs, chips, and running games while I handled the admin and logistics of getting people situated at the venue. @IllCallOneTime culinary skills were greatly appreciated when he decided to "make a few things" and then cranked out grilled chicken, carne asada, and his own freshly made guac and pico de gallo.

Congrats to @warewulf for winning the flip for the "main event" prize. We need some glamour shots of you with that poster in the future. I hope everyone who stopped by (@Organista1 @greenchip @cpiaaq @feltschmerz @Soggy0atmeal @casinochipper22 @Suited Connector and more) had a good time and made a few connections for future chip deals and home games. Thank you for pitching in to help clean and/or cover costs of the event and venue. Hopefully we can do this again soon.

New controversial chip opinion after handling some new chips at the meet-up: CPC scrowns are as good as ~90% of TRKs...

Nice job hosting @chicubs1988 and the energy to make this happen. The prizes were a nice touch. As someone mentioned previously, the carnival games were all new. Thanks @wonderpuddle for explaining each game 50 times. I'm still no better at remembering how to play any of them. I'll just stick the with that lame game called Hold'em. Anyone heard of it? Btw, did someone get a picture of the parking Tetris and that golf cart sidewalk aka driveway? geez
