The Bear River Paddling Poker Run is an on the water poker-style game that supports Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council. You provide the paddle craft of your choice. For your donation of $25.00, you will receive a Poker Paddle Card. Additional Poker Paddle Cards may be purchased for $25.00 each. Register by June 15 and receive a free commemorative t-shirt.

You will draw a playing card at the starting line, at each of the five stops along the river, and at the finish line. Your Poker Paddle Card will be punched at each location indicating the playing card drawn. Upon finishing the route you determine the best 5 card combination that you can make from your hand. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three poker hands. The prize amounts are based on the number of Poker Paddle Cards sold. The more participants, the higher the cash prizes, so be sure to invite your family and friends for this unique event.
