Kayak Poker Paddle
September 15 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Paddle the new Lake Erie Island Water Trail around Kelleys Island while raising money for the Lake Erie Water Keepers Association. Lake Erie islands are beautiful but the Lake can be rough so the route is dependent on the weather.
At each stop around the island, paddlers will draw from a deck a cards and we will tally card hands for prizes. There will be two start times, one for paddling the entire trail and one for recreational paddling.
There will be 5 stops around Kelleys Island that are perfect for the veteran or beginning kayaker! In addition there will be 2 additional stops, which are optional, around the island that add a challenge to the this poker run! Click here for more details on possible routes and stops!
