Register early for Poker Paddle event
BIGFORK — On Aug. 12, human propelled watercraft will start from the Bigfork community dock and paddle a short, middle, or extended distance (5-plus miles) course to designated stops in the beautiful northeastern part of Flathead Lake, collecting one playing card at each location.
Prizes are awarded for both the top poker hands and the worst poker hands. Each player receives a commemorative gift. There will be a picnic after-party with live music at Brookside Yard provided by the Flathead Lake Brewing Company. There will also be a silent auction. An Early Bird Discount of $10 off will be given to those registering before June 30. Participation is limited to the first 150 paddle craft.
Proceeds will benefit Flathead Lakers education programs and community work to prevent the spread of invasive mussels, promote clean water practices, and inspire future watershed citizens and the Bigfork Area Chamber of Commerce’s promotion of business and tourism in Bigfork and the surrounding area.
