CWA's 9th Annual Poker Run - Saturday August 19th 2017 11am-3pm


Rain or shine, the poker run went on! Rain for the 3rd year in a row but it didn't dampen anyone's spirits and 44 teams competed for the Magnetawan Building Centre's prize of a beautiful outdoor wood fire pit.

Last year’s event raised $430.00 and this year raised $440. Think what we can do if there was NO rain on poker run day! The money raised goes to a local charity.

The Magnetawan Building Centre has donated an awesome prize every year since we started and last year and again this year Port Carmen Marina hosted a BBQ lunch with funds going to the food bank so thank you all for supporting your local businesses.

There were 7 host docks scattered around the lake which made this an exciting event. Some were water access only and some had road access. The docks are the key to the success so if you have hosted in the past, you know how much fun it is! Throughout the event 5 families volunteered to be 2018 hosts, leaving only 2 places left. If you wish to be a host, please contact Mike at mike@makmechanical.ca or 705-828-1279 to reserve your spot on next year’s “2018 host dock” list.

The big winner was Anne Marie Johnston of Chapman Drive with a Full House. Congratulations Anne! A big "thank you" to Al and Brenda Fraser and the Magnetawan Home Building Centre for once again donating a fabulous prize.

And thanks to all our dock hosts and poker “teams” – we couldn’t have done this without you!! In spite of the rain it was a lot of fun and everyone had a great time.
