Underwater Poker

For a guy trip with a little adrenaline and other worldly experience, try an underwater poker tournament. Divester reported about a tournament to raise money for a military family, but there are tons of other good causes as well.

Here's how to organize your getaway with friends while raising money for a good cause:

  1. Decide how many guys can make this commitment. Note: They must either be scuba certified or willing to be trained how to dive.
  2. Arrange practice group dives before the big tournament.
  3. Arrange practice poker matches just for fun.
  4. Decide where to go diving and make any necessary hotel, transportation, etc. arrangements. 
  5. Set the date of the tournament, the cause for which you'll donate money, and the target amount to raise. Alert the non-profit organization, church, family, or other benefit group.
  6. Raise funds. Make calls. Go door to door. Do email blasts. Ask co-workers. Post announcements on MySpace. And so forth.
  7. Create a trip on TripHub to invite any who want to join the tournament and go as spectators or participants.
  8. Discuss trip details using TripHub's trip discussion blog, organize and post everyone's info and trip details on the event schedule.
  9. Then go on the poker tournament, win big, and feel great about donating to a worthy cause while bonding with your pals in a unique way.
