On Saturday, May 16, 2009, the Marion County Aquaholics Paddlers Group will sponsor their 10th Annual Paddlers PokerRun. The eight-mile paddle starts at Gore’s Landing and runs down the Ocklawaha River. The proceeds benefit the Ocala Outdoor Adventure Club. The club is a non-profit group that teaches outdoor skills to children and youth.
Our plans are to camp at the Silver River State Park Friday night. It is a nice park. And camping there is a good way to be relaxed and focused for the Poker Run.
There is early registration of $10 per kayak. If you register on the day of the event, the charge is $15. There is also a separate free game with prizes for children under eleven.
