The BassAkwards Poker Run Redux! @ The KYC Clubhouse
Jul 31 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The BassAkwards Poker Run Redux! @ The KYC Clubhouse

It’s been six years since the last BassAckwards weekend. The annual sailboat race and Bassetts Island party can never return as they once were to the last Saturday in July – but we’re bringing back the Poker Run – with a twist!

Man your dinghies, kayaks, Lasers and paddleboards – any kind of craft at all –  for a poker run around Red Brook and Pocasset Harbors. You’ll make stops at 5 destinations, picking up a playing card at each stop. Then it’s back to the clubhouse to play your hand. All of the money collected in entry fees pays off the best and worst hands!

This is not a race. Participants travel at their own speed and there is no benefit to being “first” to any of the card stops.

Check out all of the details HERE and register your boat today!
