CHIPPEWA BAY -- The first-ever Chippewa Bay Poker Run is set for Aug. 16.
The event will be held, rain or shine, at the Chippewa Bay town docks with poker run points at various islands in Chippewa Bay. The event is a run, not a race. The three best poker hands will win prizes. There will be charts for those not familiar with poker.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. and paddling begins at 9 a.m. The awards ceremony and kayak raffle commences at 1 p.m. at the Chippewa Bay Fish and Game Club from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
An Old Town Dirigo Kayak will be raffled at the event and tickets can be purchased from https://ticketriver.com/event/11164-chippewa-bay-poker-run---paddle-for-...
