Grab anything that floats and a lucky visor for the first annual Paddling Poker Run in Marina del Rey on July 22.
Participants in the poker run will stop at five checkpoints where they will draw a card, and the person with the best poker hand at the end will be declared the winner. People can use stand up paddle boards, kayaks, a dinghy or anything else that floats and requires a paddle or oar to propel it.
The event will have a time limit, but players will not be timed. The Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club is organizing the event. To register for the event, visit www.smwyc.com
