Threatening skies and an approaching thunderstorm delayed the 4th-annual Conley Bottom PWC Poker Run Saturday morning June 19th. After about an hour and a half, the threat of lightning had passed and the participants were on their way.

The PWC riders met for a safety meeting before leaving for the first of their planned stops near the 4-H camp cove. Participants rode to Jamestown Marina gathering cards along the way to complete what would hopefully be the winning poker hand. The riders then met back up at Conley Bottom, where they were treated to a delicious lunch from the Conley Bottom staff, of hots dogs, chicken salad croissants, chips, and fresh-baked cookies. A drawing took place after lunch, awarding many people hats, t-shirts and other freebies which had been donated by local businesses. Next, the participants stepped up to a table on one of the Conley Bottom rental houseboats, where they opened their last poker card to complete their hand. Rick Slanker posted the best hands.

Donna Fridenmaker, then announced who had won this years event.

1st place Kurt Litkenhaus

2nd place Chuck Crosby

3rd place Chuck Slicer

This event has become a fun way to spend a Saturday in June at the lake, taking in the scenery and enjoying the company of boaters on a warm summer day.
