3rd Annual Pine River Poker Paddle
The 3rd annual Pine River Poker Paddle returns Saturday, Aug. 20th.
Registration starts at 9:30 a.m. and the cost is FREE to join in the poker fun and be eligible to win a kayak, best hand wins! Additional cards can be purchased on site for $2. If you still want to come out and kayak but not partake in poker, that's okay! We will start paddling at 10 a.m.
During this event, participants paddle along the Pine River starting at the St. Clair Boat Harbor to the train bridge and back. Along the way you will stop at five checkpoints to pick up a poker card. There will be an optional longer route to obtain an extra poker card.
At the end of the event, the player with the best hand wins a brand new kayak, generously sponsored by DeLude Construction. Second and third place will also be awarded with prizes.
Don't own your own kayak, canoe or paddle board? Don't worry, you can rent from the St. Clair Boat Harbor, Great Lakes Paddle Sports, Missy's Kayak Connection or PoHo Paddle Co. There will be a limited number of kayaks on site to rent so book early!

About St. Clair
St. Clair is Michigan’s fifth English speaking settlement. In 2014 the City celebrated the 250th anniversary of the building of Fort Sinclair by the British at the junction of the River Huron (now renamed the St. Clair River) and the Pine River.
When I first moved to St. Clair, I thought this was just a sleepy retirement community. After 15 years as a St. Clair resident, I know what a great place it is to raise kids and run a business.
