Promoting the Environmental Quality and Wise Use of Hutchins Lake and Its Watershed

The Poker Run is Back!

Saturday, May 25, 2024 7:00 PM at Eagle Point Association Park

The Hutchins Lake Poker Run is back this Memorial Day Weekend!  It is a wonderful opportunity to kick-off summer with our HLIA members and friends!  The objective of the Poker Run is to paddle to 7 designated spots on the lake where you will collect a playing card that is part of your poker hand.  This is a non-motorized craft event.  Life jackets are required for all participants.  Refreshments will be provided.  Please gather at the park at 7:00 PM for registration and check in.  The race begins at 7:30 PM.

Don't wish to participate?  No problem!  Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the fun! Wish to volunteer?  Great!  We'll provide that information too!  

More details will be posted with registration beginning in March!  Stay tuned!
