40th Annual Carey Berger Memorial Poker Run August, 3rd, 2024

Join us for the 40th  annual Carey Berger Memorial Poker Run!  TONS OF CAMPING THIS YEAR!!!   Check it out….    Camping opens July 29th and checkout is August 5th at NOON.  Some people will boat on Friday, but the real fun begins on Saturday morning – buy your poker hands for $5 each at the put-in, and build your prize-winning hands as you float the river with your friends.   Card Station #1 is at the put in where you can get more information and purchase your poker hands.   Stations #2-5 are along the river in different eddies and beaches.    Pay attention, stations come up fast!!  At the end of the day (7pm), we have a great potluck and pass out the prizes to poker hand winners.

Poker stations generally launch between 9-930am.  Most floaters launch from 0930-1130am.   The sweep boat launches between 1130-noon.

There is no planned lunch at station 3 this year so make sure to bring your own and paddlers

Potluck and prizes are at 7pm!!  This is a game of skill.  If you miss the prizes or a station you will play a hand short!!!

This is always a great family event.   The camp will be busy, we ask that you help us accommodate all campers by sharing and not reserving camps. If you have a camper or RV, please make sure you are prepared to share tent sites next to where you camp.

There is free camping for WRRR members ($10 donation for non-members). Lower Goodell Creek group camp is just across the road from the put-in, and is separated into two parts. The upper and lower loops.  Please keep noise down after 10pm.   Please make sure coolers are locked in a vehicle or bear box.   Last year the parks confiscated several coolers left out.

Carey Berger had cerebral palsy, and it didn’t stop him from enjoying whitewater events.   Carey was one of the original trip leaders of this event in 1985.
