The Smith Mountain Lake Boating Association has added a new event for the 2013 Tom Maynard Memorial Poker Run, which will be held May 17‑18.
On the morning of May 17, those arriving early will have an opportunity to participate in an SMLBA-sanctioned Fun Run. One lucky participant will win a $500 prize sponsored by Jon Dabareiner of Dabareiner Wealth Management.
The Fun Run will begin at 11 a.m. at Mariner’s Landing, where many of the poker run participants will be housed. Before departure, each runner will draw a card at a cost of $10 per card. There is no limit to the number of cards participants may draw. The money will go to SMLBA and will increase the amount of donations to lake-area charities.
After a casual cruise on the lake, participants will stop at Mexico Viejo for a lunch that will include drink and lunch specials. At that time, the holder of the highest card will be awarded the $500 prize. To prevent a tie, card suits will be the determining factor.
Fun Runners then will return to Mariner’s Landing in time to catch the shuttle bus for Bridgewater Plaza, site of evening festivities that will kick off the poker run.
Registration for the event, which is at 60 percent capacity, is continuing at www.smlba.com. Click on “poker run” and register. Payment may be made via PayPal or by printing the page and mailing it as instructed.
