8th ANNUAL POKER RUN - Saturday August 13th 2016

The rainy weather did not stop the 43 teams who braved the rain to participate in our 8th annual Lake Cecebe Poker run. Meeting new friends including long time cottagers and new-to-the-lake cottagers was the goal of the poker run when I started it 8 years ago and the goal remains the same. Lots of money has been raised to date and that goes towards donations from the Cecebe Waterways. This year we raised $430.00. The winner this year is Brian Towsley. Ccongratulations Brian - I hope you enjoy the stand- up paddleboard donated by Magnetawan Home Hardware.

Thanks to the host docks, they are the key to making this a success.

1-Anne Paine 126 Chapman Drive

2- Tom and Laura Tanner 16 Gordon Island

3-Blair Watterworth 356 Jeffery Rd S

4- Port Carmen Marina

5-Mark & Rachel Allen, Poplar Lane

6- Ian and Leah Cameron who stood in for Rob Zwierschke who had a family emergency at the last moment

We need guest docks signed up for next year and are currently looking for a mix of island, water access docks and road access docks. At present we have 4 of 7 lined up. The guest docks are the key to success of the event and if you have hosted in the past you know how much fun it can be. If you wish to be a guest dock for 2017 please contact me to make arrangements.

Special thanks again to Al & Brenda from the Magnetawan Home Hardware store for donating the grand prize; to Port Carmen Marina for donating the trophies and to Ted and June Hewett of Port Carmen Marina who hosted a hot dog/bbq stand for members to grab a quick bite while getting their poker cards. The funds raised went to the local food bank. Please remember to shop locally to thank them for their support.
