River Yachtsmen's League (DRYL)
DRYL Poker Run Regatta @ DRYC
We opened our card pick up station at about 10a on Saturday
June 18th. we didn' have to wait too long before the poker run
regatta vessels began to arrive. Carol & I manned the sign in
& card pick up table with help from Mike Smith; John Macanny
provided bottled water, extra pretzels plus setting up a large
ice bath for the beverages plus setting up a lounge area for
boaters to"hang out"; Mike Smith provided Snapple Ice tea for
the travelers while Henry Berk and members of Sea Scouts, Ship
484 provided the man power on the docks to handle the many
vessels that came in with approximately 150 expectant poker
players; the total of 324 people participated in the regatta.
Here is the list of winners and the $ winnings: Zoltan P. won
the $200 Loser's Pool - not a bad return on a $5 investment -
he only had a pair of Queens.
5th Place with a Full Boat Ace's over 5's went to Joe M. who
4th Place went to Frank C. who also had a Full Boat Ace's over
Kings and Frank also took home $405.
3rd Place with 4 10's went to Bryan S. who left happy with
2nd Place was Chris M. who had 4 Queens and he strutted away
1st Place went to Robert C. who had 5 Jacks and ﬂoated away
with !!! $3,242 !!!
It is interesting to note that all winners came from the North
end of the river.
From what we heard everyone enjoyed their experience at DRYC
during this event. I am very appreciative of the help which
came from John Macanny, Mike Smith, Carol G. and the leader &
members of Sea Scout Ship 484.
