The Amazing Boat Race and Poker Run:

This family-friendly event will include live music, raffles, food, drinks, spirits, auctions and much more.  A map will be given to each participant. Participants will board their boats at the city's public boat ramp on Timber Island, leave the marina on a shot-gun start toward Dog Island, complete five fun challenges at various checkpoints, receive a poker card at each, return to the starting point and enter their hand into the computer. If the hand matches the preselected combination, they will win a Nissan Titan Truck from Kraft Nissan and a Boat from Jacks Boats & Trailers in Perry worth $ 85,000!  Registration for those who are not pre-registered begins at 7:30 a.m., the Poker Run should conclude at 2-3 p.m. It’s $100 per hand until 8/25 then it goes up to $125 and $175 if they do it the day of the event….we don’t limit the number of people playing so if your boat holds 10 people all 10 can buy a hand and play.

The VIP After Party is an adult event 6-10 p.m. with live music from the Bay Kings Band, chef sampler food & drinks…$50 now until 8/25 and then $75.  VIP Registration includes: Food, drinks, live entertainment, auction items and much more. The VIP area will be open from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. and will be located at Carrabelle Bistro & Marina, 275 Timber Island Road, Carrabelle, FL.

All proceeds benefit the Epilepsy Association of the Big Bend’s clients, a nonprofit agency that provides medical and social work services to those who have seizure disorders and epilepsy.

MUST BE 18 years of age to win.  For more information or to register, go to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/eabb-presents-the-amazing-boat-race-and-poker-run-tickets-48041446259

The largest sponsor right now is Voigts Crane Rental in Valdosta…..Kraft Nissan & Jerry’s Boats & Trailers in Perry are the prize sponsors BUT the truck & boat are covered by insurance and there is no guaranteed winner. The insurance company generates a computerized poker hand that is stored in the computer and when the people come back with their hand they enter it to see if it matches. We will have a sealed envelope on site in the event NO ONE wins…it can be opened and displayed but must remain sealed if there is a winner.
