Leukemia Cup Poker Run
The event will be Saturday May 19, 2018. The idea is for this to be a pub crawl on the water type thing. So boats will go out at 10am from either the NOYC or wherever they are docked. There will be a list of stops (Blue Crab, Brisbis, Landrys, St. Tammany Yacht Club, Pontchartrain Yacht Club, and Shuberts) that each boat can hop to in no particular order.
The idea is to make it to all stops and at each stop get a stamp on your stop card to signify you made it to that stop. Back at the Yacht Club around 3pm, you will get dealt a hand coinciding with the amount of stops you made. The point is the have the best poker hand –The top 3 winners have the chance to win monetary prizes (amounts to be determined on how many boat registrations they bring in – Last year it was $100, $200, and $300 for 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place)
Any type of boat is welcome to register for a $100 donation—your boat registration comes with 1 poker hand, 1 ticket to the post poker run party from 3-7 @ NOYC, and 1 goody bag including t-shirt (with early registration).
We encourage crew members to purchase tickets to the post poker run party for $25 and additional poker hands.
The Post Poker Run Party will be from 3pm-7pm at the NOYC. There will be silent auction, a raffle, food catered by Acme Oyster House, chicken wings by Hooters, cash bar and live music (band to be announced). T-shirts will be for sale at the event and online for $15.
