On Saturday, October 26th, 2019, from 6 pm till 9 pm; KYSC and LAYCC will be hosting our 8th annual Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Fund Raiser at the marina. Located at 2015 Lake Arrowhead Dr. Waleska, Georgia 30183.
To enter a boat in this event "The Poker Hand Regatta", a donation of at least $50 needs to be made to the WWP via their website link (use the link at the bottom of this page) by Thursday October 24th, 2019. All boat registration money goes to the WWP via their website and is not part of the poker pot money.
Only registered boats can take poker players to card locations on the lake. As proof of your boat being registered bring your donation receipt from the WWP to the registration table at the KYSC Boat House at the start of the event (5 PM).
To play, each player pays at least $10 to the dealer to build a big cash pot. Two extra cards can be purchased before the final play for at least $5/each from the dealer. At the end of the event, this cash pot will be split; half to the highest hand and half to the Cherokee County Homeless Vets Program.
Players will pickup one card at the start and one card at the finish. The other three cards will be dealt at locations around the lake. These cards can be pickup between 6:30 and 8 PM. Cards will be individually marked to prevent swapping of cards between players during the regatta.
Everyone is invited to honor our Lake Arrowhead veterans at a 15 minute tournament award and veteran recognition ceremony which will start at 8:30 pm at the marina pavilion.
In the last seven years, participants have raised more than $23,000 for the WWP at these fund raising events.
