The non-racing Poker Run starts anytime between 9:00 and 10:30 a.m.

A $100 Bass Pro Shop Gift Card will be awarded for Best Hand in the Poker Run. Other top hands will receive gift certificates and other prizes, while supplies last. The Poker Run involves paddling to several docks along the designated route to collect
