VERSUS (Limited to 60 teams)

Airdrie – Red Deer – Alberta Badlands – Calgary (580km)

August 22, 2020 (1-Day Event)

Event Style: Poker Run

Starting at House of Cars – Airdrie, Versus will take teams into Central Alberta for a showdown between American and European/Import vehicles. At the start of the event, teams will receive a route card containing three locations they must visit, as well as one playing card. At each location, teams will draw a card from a standard deck of playing cards. The goal is to form the best blackjack hand (trying to total 21). Teams have the option of hitting or staying, at each card draw location.

  • Numbered cards are worth the value of the number displayed on the card.
  • Aces are 1 or 11 (your choice)
  • King, Queen & Jack are worth 10 points

At the lunch location, teams’ hands will be tallied. The afternoon leg will see teams form a new blackjack hand.

During each leg of the rally, there’ll be a special challenge. Win the challenge and earn an advantage that’ll help you form a better hand.

The group (American or Euro) with more collective points will reign supreme, and earn their Versus medallion. Will American Muscle defeat the European/Import crowd, or will Team Euro take down the stars and stripes? On Versus, one group will reign supreme! The event will conclude back in Calgary, at Hotel Blackfoot, for dinner and awards. Expect the event to conclude around 7 p.m.

We will accept 30 vehicles to form each faction.
