Cecebe Waterways Annual Poker Run

Our Poker Run started in the summer of 2009 and was the creation of Mike Kinsey who still “chairs” this today! His aim was to provide an opportunity to meet some of your neighbours and make new lake friends. At the same time, the registration fees could go towards the local Food Bank (Burks Falls and District) and hereby give back to our community as well. And as one says, the rest is history! This year’s Poker Run will be our 12th – it has been a fun event and we are now up to 60+ teams most years.

Registration is $10 and you can have as many entries per boat (or canoe, rowboat, car or?) as you wish or enter as a one team name. The entry is free if you complete the poker run without the use of a motorized vehicle/vessel. All members of the waterway association are welcome along with their family and friends.

There will be seven pre-arranged host docks to stop at. You will pick up a playing card at each and try to make the best poker hand possible. There is no particular dock order and it really is blind luck so no skill or knowledge of poker is required. There is also an opportunity to be one of the 7 docks which is also a lot of fun as you get to meet everyone when they stop to collect their poker card!This year’s poker run takes place on Saturday August 15th from 11am to 3pm. Posters, registration forms, a lake map and the dock list etc. will all be available through our website and FB group page closer to the date. The winner will be announced and presented with the trophy at the CWA family corn roast that evening.

If you wish to be a host dock or just need further information please contact Mike Kinsey at mike@makmechanical.com or 705-828-1279
