3rd Annual Paddle Poker Run

Get your paddles ready for a fun event on the beautiful waters of the St. Lawrence River! The Township of Front of Yonge is hosting the third annual Paddle Poker Run on Saturday September 16th 2023 at Brown’s Bay.

The Paddle Poker Run is an event that encourages people to get outside to celebrate and enjoy the St. Lawrence River. All river-appropriate paddle craft are welcome (kayak, canoe, etc.) This is not a race, but a fun paddle that all ages and abilities can enjoy. Each paddler will follow a route beginning at Brown’s Bay that includes at least five stops or check points where they will draw a playing card. After the paddle, there will be prizes for the best poker hand. There will be routes set up for beginners and for experienced paddlers ranging from 5km to 10km.

Registration is limited, so please register online today at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/3rd-annual-paddlepoker-run-tickets-678171367817
