The Board met yesterday and we need to cancel our June event and move it to July. We had it scheduled for June 25, 2016 which is the same day as the Animal Shelter Golf Tournament. We did not want to interfere with their tournament.
We have worked out a few dates. Please mark your calendars early!!
Animal Shelter Poker Run: July 9, 2016 – 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. pick up instructions. 3:30 p.m. back to Marina for cards and food. $10 for each hand; 1/2 to winner and 1/2 to Animal Shelter. $1 to buy extra card to better hand. 30% for best hand and 20% for worst hand. You will have five places to go for the card pickup forms. We will have a map to help find the places; which will be from “snake cove” to Grand Isle. Club will furnish hot dogs/buns on barge. Members bring an appetizer, dish to pass, or dessert. BYOB
