This year’s thirteenth annual SMLBA Tom Maynard Memorial Poker Run is scheduled for May 21 & 22, 2010. Since its inception,this charitable fund raiser has raised over $265,000 for local organizations such as the SML Marine Volunteer Fire Dept.
This years event has undergone some major changes and upgrades that will make it one of the most exciting ever. The Friday night welcoming event takes place, as usual, at Mangos, and features a barbeque and beer dinner followed by live entertainment. The Martin/Wheeling project will open followed by The Kings.
Saturday the event moves to Mariners Landing for the start and finish of the “card game played on the water”. There are 75 courtesy slips available for the maximum number of entrants allowed and Mariners is providing a special rate on condos for players and guests so that participants can all be at one location. The SMLBA has chartered a bus to shuttle participants to and from Mangos on Friday night.
When players and guests return to Mariners on Saturday afternoon, they will be treated to a beer garden, followed by a catered awards dinner by Benjamins at the Pointe. then the entertainment continues when Burning Bridges hits the stage for a hard rockin night.
At this point registrations have reached about 50% of the predicted sellout of 75 boats. Those interested in participating, or becoming a sponsor, should contact event chairman, Marshall Prillaman at 540 761 5147 or go to www.smlba.com ;
