Questions about the Poker Run

Answer: A boat poker run is an event where the participants go from one designated stop on the lake to another by boat. At each stop they will pick up a playing card until they have completed all of the stops and have five cards. When they return to Sunset Cove the poker hands are evaluated at the "Casino" then scored and the best poker hand wins the grand prize. This year the cards will be in sealed envelopes and are not to be opened until the player returns to the "Casino". Our event is also "Pirate" themed and we give out trophies to the best "Pirate" dressed boats and crews. This will be our sixth year of having this event on Lake Lanier and each year it gets bigger and better. The only purpose of the event, other than to have fun, is to raise money for the children in need in our area.
