SPSA is hosting its 2nd annual sailboat poker run Saturday 9/24 @11:00 am. This is not a race, rather we will be playing a hand of poker as we have a fun sail around the bay. We will meet at the picnic tables at the eastern point of Demens Landing to register (look for the SPSA banner) and get the locations of the dealer boats. There is public parking in the “A” spots by the picnic tables. After picking up all of your cards at the dealer boats, rendezvous at Courigan’s to draw the final card, have some dinner and drinks. This event is open to non-member sailboats as well, so feel free to invite your friends. The entire crew can participate, and you are welcome to play more than one hand. Entry fee is $20/hand (cash only). 1st place 50% of the pot, 2nd place 25%, and 25% for the worst hand. If you don’t want to play poker, you are welcome to just come sail around with us and hang out for dinner.
**** We have one “dealer” boat so far, but could still use two more “dealer” boats!! Please let me know if you would like to do this! ****
