The Wichita section had a great time on this poker run, with 11 members and 7 cars taking part!  We kicked off the event with a gathering at a wonderful local bookstore, Watermark Books and Cafe.  After drawing the first card and getting route directions, the group next drove west to the Kingman County historical museum.  The museum is located inside the town's old firehouse and has a great collection of items documenting life in a small Kansas farm town.  Clyde Cessna (of Cessna aircraft fame) starting building and flying airplanes in this area.After stretching our legs (and drawing another card) we next drove on to the little town of Zenda and had lunch at the Lumberyard.  This local eatery serves great food and the service was top notch.  We got a lot of looks as our Mercedes convoy cruised through the town!  Time for a third card draw!From Zenda, we next turned back east and back towards Wichita.  Our next stop was on the Arkansas River and the famous Keeper of the Plains monument.  The weather was wonderful, especially by the river, but it was starting to get hot and we were getting thirsty!  Fourth card draw...Our final stop was at a local German restaurant, Prost.  The co-owner of the restaurant, who is from Germany, was thrilled to see us and ushered us up to a long fest-style table for some very good German beer.  We then drew the fifth card and people showed their hands.  Deanna Gaffney was our big winner, taking home a very nice framed picture of a 300 SL Gullwing.  Kevin White won a signed photography book by a local artist and Lee Elrick picked up a Kansas guide book.Everyone had a great time and we look forward to doing this again.
