Charles Town: We want to play poker!

47 Signatures Goal: 100

This year, the West Virginia legislature passed a bill to legalize table games, including poker, at the state\'s four racetrack casinos. The proposal still needs to pass a local referendum June 9, but most polls indicate it will pass easily. After that, the chips are allowed to fly. One of the state\'s casinos, Charles Town Races and Slots, is only 65 miles from Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, Penn National Gaming, which owns Charles Town, is not planning to add poker tables until July, 2008 - over a year after table games are legalized. D.C. area poker players do not enjoy a convenient place to play poker in a casino. Tolls, miles, and traffic makes Atlantic City an unattractive option to play poker frequently. And we do not want to wait for an additional year for Penn National Gaming to get around to adding a poker room to Charles Town. We, the undersigned, call upon Penn National Gaming to make poker a priority: offer poker immediately, dedicate significant floor space to poker, and offer a wide variety of games. Let us come make some money for you, while we make some money for ourselves.
