Pine River Poker Paddle returns Aug. 20

Combining two popular pastime activities equals great summer fun. The 3rd annual Pine River Poker Paddle returns Saturday, Aug. 20.

Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. Thanks to our sponsor DeLude Construction, the cost is FREE to join in the poker fun and be eligible to win a kayak. Best hand wins! 

We will still sell extra cards for $2 each. Paddling starts at 10 a.m.

You can pre-register now.

During this event, participants paddle along the Pine River starting at the St. Clair Boat Harbor to the train bridge and back. Along the way you will stop at five checkpoints to pick up a poker card. There will be an optional longer route to obtain an bonus poker card. You can also purchase extra cards for $2 a piece at the event. 

At the end of the event, the player with the best hand wins a brand new Dagger Zydeco kayak, generously sponsored by DeLude Construction and Great Lakes Marine Outfitters.

Don't own your own kayak, canoe or paddle board? Don't worry, you can rent from the St. Clair Boat Harbor, Great Lakes Paddle Sports, Missy's Kayak Connection or PoHo Paddle Co. There will be a limited amount of kayaks on site to rent so book early!
