It wasn’t a race, and we were the only “prone” paddlers in the event, but this weekends MDR Poker Paddle and harbor clean up was a really fun little event. Took Daniel and his buddy Jack down to collect a poker hand at five different stations around the bay, along the way grabbing plastic crap that folks mindlessly toss into the water, and we had a blast.
The course was a respectable 3.5 miles and we collected a fairly strong hand (a pair of Jacks and a pair of Queens, Ace high). It was not to be, however, as someone came in holding four 8s. We did manage to win “Best Family Effort,” as my day was mostly spent pushing the kids forward like a tug. Lots of fun and good cause. Can’t wait for the next one.
