Ocklawaha RiverOn Saturday, May 16, 2009, the Marion County Aquaholics Paddlers Group will sponsor their 10th Annual Paddlers PokerRun.  The eight-mile paddle starts at Gore’s Landing and runs down the Ocklawaha River.  The proceeds benefit the Ocala Outdoor Adventure Club.  The club is a non-profit group that teaches outdoor skills to children and youth.

Our plans are to camp at the Silver River State Park Friday night.  It is a nice park.  And camping there is a good way to be relaxed and focused for the Poker Run.

There is early registration of $10 per kayak.  If you register on the day of the event, the charge is $15.  There is also a separate free game with prizes for children under eleven.
