Event description

Description

Paddlers (kayak, canoe, SUP) *NMV (Non-Motorized Vessels only)

This is a five-card poker run on the water from Plumas Pines Resort, southerly along Lake Almanor's west shore, and return. Lake Almanor is the 8th largest reservoir in California and has warm summer water and stunning forest and mountain-top views, including Mt. Lassen and Dyer Mountain. Choose from either a 5 miIe or an 8 mile roundtrip!

So what's a Poker Run?

Paddlers will make 5 shore stops at 3 different locations to pick up 5 poker numbers, which upon finishing will be matched to numbers on the master poker hand board to determin a paddlers poker hand. First and second place prizes awarded to the paddlers with the best poker hand.

Bring your own non-motorized vessel (NMV) and safety equipment to the starting/finish line at the Plumas Pines Resort (on the shore behind the restaurant). Equipment is also available for rent from Lake Almanor Kayak Rental or Bodfish Quiet Mountain Sports.

Why travel to Lake Almanor?

Lake Almanor is a stunningly beautiful lake in the Sierra/Cascade Mountains, with a maximum surface elevation of about 4500 feet (see our website for pics: www.yourARPD.org). The surface water temperatures can reach 65 to 70 + degrees. The west shore of Lake Almanor has great campgrounds, RV parks, cabins and associated resort restaurants, cafes, bars and swimming areas.
