Poker Run 2022

TICKET SALES: Ticket sales will begin at 9:30am EST for members and 10:30am EST for non-members. We have a limit of 8 tickets per paid membership household. Sales will be the Pinkos house on Idle Ease Beach (94356 Drive D) Only 400 tickets will be available. Tickets usually sell out within the first two hours. Tickets will not be available early. Tickets are $15 and payable by cash or check. Venmo will not be accepted for this event.

Sales will run the same as previous years. A line will form at the front of our house (street side) and will flow into our backyard. The first table you approach will check your membership, give you a check-out form and assign your player numbers which locks in your ticket. After that you can purchase poker run t-shirts, gravel lake t-shirts and 50/50 raffle tickets. You do not need to rush through this as your players numbers are already reserved for you. When you are ready to check out – proceed to the check-out table where you can pay for everything at once with the form you receive at check in. At this time, you will receive the player packets.

Poker run start times will be staggered like previous years. Start times are at 1:00, 1:45 or 2:30 depending on your player number. Please adhere to this as closely as possible to avoid congestion at the docks.

Turning in your hands & dock votes:

When you collect all your cards, drop off your packet at dock #8 – Vitkauskas Residence on Streeter Beach. To help minimize the time between card drop off and announcing winners, please only submit your cards if you have a straight or better. Regardless of your poker hand – make sure to vote for your favorite dock host to recognize all of their hard work and effort.

Please drop completed packets in the bin on the end of their dock. One bin will be for the poker hands and a second bin will be for “best dock” votes – please separate them. Packets need to be dropped off by 6pm!! No exceptions. All packets must have your name and phone number on them in order to win. We will not track down owners of nameless packets.
