*******THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT*******NO REFUNDS*******

This year's event will be open to everyone to participate in a "poker" paddle race for kayaks and stand-up paddle boards in beautiful Islamorada. Essentially a "poker run" is an excuse to get together, have some fun and raise money and awareness for a great cause. The approximately 4 mile route will consist of five stops in mainly shallow water, including two sandbars, making a loop back to Postcard Inn Beach. 
At each stop, the participant will be dealt a random card and the winner of the event is the participant who makes the best five card poker hand. We will have a closer run along the coast in case of windy conditions.

This years Poker Paddle will be supporting 
Children of Wounded Warriors a local, South Florida recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the children of fallen or wounded US Military, Law Enforcement, and Fire Rescue personnel. The vision of Children of Wounded Warriors is to support these children in need of financial support by offering grants to support and maintain their extra-curricular actives, such as sports, arts, or any other activity the child participates in which enriches him/her to continue to grow spiritually and emotionally. These grants offer the opportunity to maintain a level of normalcy, relieve the stress that accompanies these tragedies and maintain some daily routine to keep together bonds and friendships.

Whether you are the fastest paddler out there or the last one to finish, you have great chances of winning some amazing prizes. This year will be adding some extra twists to help increase your chances!!
