Description

The Fort Pierce Yacht Club, and its sponsors, present the 1st community-wide Annual Charity Poker Run on the water. This event is OPEN to both powered and paddle boats. Proceeds from the event will be used to provide scholarships for local Indian River State College undergraduates to perform a 10 week, 40hr/day Marine Research Internship at FAU Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. Local Events, Local Students, Local Research! Come have fun on the water and help us give back to our community, promote local research, and provide educational opportunities for our local students! It's a win-win for everyone!

There are two separate courses: 1) Power boats (inboard & outboard) & 2) Paddle boats (Kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, etc). At the mandatory Captain's meeting, participants will receive a participation coupon (to be stamped at each stop). Participants must visit five docks, where they will have their coupon stamped and then draw a poker card from an envelope. An official will mark their coupon with the rank and suit of the card drawn at that stop. When all five stops are completed for each participant they will return to the Fort Pierce Yacht Club for scoring and results. Poker hands will be scored using standard poker hand rankings.

Prizes will be awarded for:

  • Best Overall Hand

  • Worst Overall Hand

  • Best Decorated Power Boat

  • Best Decorated Paddle Boat
