Poker Paddle Fundraiser

Poker Paddle

Sippican Lands Trust’s Poker Paddle event has been postponed until tomorrow (Wednesday, Aug. 10) due to the threat of inclement weather this evening. Hope to see you at tomorrow’s Poker Paddle starting at Island Wharf at 5 p.m. Please contact the Sippican Lands Trust at (508) 748-3080 or with any questions and thank you for your support of this event.

Location: Island Wharf, Off Front St Marion, MA 02738

Description: Come celebrate the connection between protecting open space and the beautiful, diverse waters of Buzzards Bay. Help support the Sippican Lands Trust as you paddle in the early evening on the usually quiet and wildlife filled upper harbor.

  • There will be five checkpoints near SLT protected lands.
  • At each spot you will collect a card.
  • The best poker hand at the end of the night wins $150, runner up wins $100 and there will be other prizes, including a cash prize for the most spirted boat!

Although this is not a race, you will need to check in between 4:00 and 6:00 PM and plan to be out of the water by 7:30 PM. Check in, boat drop, and prize events will be located at Island Wharf. Depending on your navigation, this trip would be about a 4-mile paddle with most paddlers taking 1.5 to 2 hours by canoe, kayak, or SUP.

This is a unique way to revel in a summer evening on Marion harbor so sign up to enjoy a night along the harbor!
