New Melones Lake poker run set for this Saturday

This Saturday, the New Melones Lake Charity poker boat run will kick off at 8:00 AM. The Angels Camp, CA event will provide funds for a number of worthy causes, including the Mark Twain Badger boosters, Sonora High School’s leadership, New Melones Waterski Club, the Bret Harte FFA boosters and the Calaveras Tuolumne Cattlewomen.

Hands are $100 each and can be purchased at the Marina store (cash only) starting the morning of the run. There are five stations located around the lake and each station provides a clue to the next station. Hands must be shown at the Marina store at 6:00 PM, with the winner being awarded 50% of the collected cash. The other 50% goes to purchase items appointed by the winning hand to help facilitate boaters and their guests.

Any method of water transportation can be used – houseboat, ski boat, wave runner, etc. Multiple hands can be played and everyone is invited, even those without watercraft. The Marina offers a selection of ski boats, jet skis and houseboats that can be rented and used for the event. According to the event organizers, “This event is designed to allow boaters to enjoy the entire lake,
while boating station to station picking up your cards and
raising money for charity.”

The Marina is located at 6503 Glory Hole Rd, Angels Camp, California 95222
