    There was a lot of discussion about going back to using cards handed out at the dock instead of poker chips.   The poker chips were a way to control cheating or the perception of cheating at the event.  

           Need to procure custom tamper proof seal or tape for envelops.

           Melisa will get unique card decks ; Dazzle has custom playing cards
