Family Poker Run Saturday-March 20 EagleQuest Lodge
EagleQuest Lodge, located near the entrance of Deshka Landing, will be hosting their annual Chris Stringer Memorial Poker Run on Saturday, March 20th. Participants leave EagleQuest Lodge at 11 am for round-trip run up the Yentna River past Luce's Lodge then back to EagleQuest (about 52 miles) . This event had over 100 riders last year! This is a very family friendly Poker Run and includes a meal upon returning to EagleQuest.
Cost is $20, which is a donation to help fund the Christ Stringer Memorial basketball gym in Wasilla.
There are no cash prizes, however there are many donated prizes awarded for the best hands played.
Registration and parking will all be handled through EagleQuest.
For more information please call the lodge at 495-1116.
This event follows the groomed/staked trails to the turnaround just past Luce's Lodge. The ice is solid along the trails with the depth being at least 2 feet thick. Unfortunately yesterday's accident may put in question the safety along the river trails, however participants in this event leave as a group and stay along the established trail.
