Grand Lake Poker Run and Family Barbecue – August 31st, 2013

Thanks to all who attended the poker run this year. Although attendance was down a bit, some last minute sales of extra hands by  Dale Smith helped make it a lucrative win for the best three hands. The winner was Paul Méthot. The second place winners were the Smith Family from Lake Placid New York (Goodwin’s cottage ) and third place was the Phillips Family from the Grand Lake Sports Club. As usual, great burgers, hot dogs and corn (maybe the best ever) were enjoyed, and lots of prizes amused the younger set. Thanks to Susan and Don Goodwin for organizing the event, to the cooks and to other volunteers and a special thanks to Brian and Glennis Reynolds for the use of their property once again to host this final event of the season. Susan has volunteered to organize next year’s run which will take place on Saturday August 30, 2014 (rain date is August 31st). All are welcome and you can just join the participants at the Reynolds’ camp where you can buy a hand or just the food.  Come and meet your Grand Lake neighbours.
