Warriors Anouncement

The Poker Run is established for a threefold purpose:
to enhance the DBSPS visibility in the community so the general public will want to educate their families, join and participate in Squadron activities.

2) to generate funds that will be given to a charity that shows commitment to Volusia and Flagler counties and our veterans.

3) to provide the participants with an activity that allows for those to have family boating fun while helping raise funds for a good cause.

By making a contribution, individuals will be registered to participate in the Poker run and eligible to win prizes during the event. The run will consist of various riverside locations where participants will travel to. Each participant will check into the starting location and draw a card for a deck. After drawing a card at each of the locations, they will have a completed Poker hand. At the final stop, they will record their Poker hand.

How will this work?
A recreational boater poker run held on the Halifax and Indian Rivers between Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach. Boaters will visit various locations drawing cards that will determine winning hands for boaters competing for prizes.

Registered boaters will check into a beginning location at MarinaView Restaurant, proceed to other established locations and draw card(s) at each location to determine their hand. There are numerous possible locations, boat ramps, restaurants and marinas between Ormond Beach and New Smyrna Beach.

Sunday, 3 June 2018.

The Primary Date follows National Safe Boating Week (May 19-25, 2018) and Memorial Day May 28th). Back-up date will be determined by weather.

Why: (Our Objectives)
1. To promote both fun and safe boating among a large group of non-members.
2. To raise awareness of DBSPS in the local boating communities.
3. To raise funds for a significant charitable contribution by our squadron.
