Come and join us for the 2nd Annual Memorial for the beloved Piper White! The entry fee $20.00 per boat and includes snacks, a picnic lunch, and a donation to Lake Erie Waterkeepers.
The mission of Lake Erie Waterkeepers is to preserve and to improve the ecosystem in Lake Erie and its watersheds. The Great Lakes are considered to be one of the most important fresh water systems in the world, so this event is really helping a great cause.
The poker paddle will begin at Kelleys Island State Park launch (Sandy Beach). Sea kayakers will take a 13-mile circumference of the island and return to the starting point. Shorter routes are available for recreational kayakers.
Prizes will be awarded for winning hands. The event will be held rain or shine! The Piper Memorial Poker Paddle is sponsored by Island Adventours and Kelleys Island Brewery along with many Island businesses donating prizes.
