The game goes like this: You put in your $5 and every one who is participating draws one card at the Supper Club and your draw is written down. The group heads out across the prairie, heading to a neighboring farm to the north, where they draw another card. The person who lives there jots down those card number results and sends them along with the last member of the snowmobiling group. Repeat that last step 3 times and every one has a hand of five. Best hand by poker standards wins.
He faked a nap and then talked me in to dressing him so that he could join Danish Cowboy for the last leg of the journey on the five miles back to Brockway. It took the group a long while to get to our place.
The group that does this is pretty hardy, but they were helped along with some schnapps and the promise of warmth and a meal at the supper club when they returned. I suppose that the $63 promised to the winner also made a difference because wow...$63.
