Big Cat Poker Run

August 10 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

On August 9-10, 2019, The Big Cat Poker Run returns to the California Delta presented by the Discovery Bay Lions Club. All boaters are welcome to participate. Help us to raise thousands of dollars for local charities.

The weekend of fun begins Friday, with lunch run to Smith’s Landing in Antioch. A welcoming party and registration follows that evening. Saturday is the Poker Run allowing plenty of time to socialize. Poker draw and party follows.

We have two routes, a shorter run for slower boats and a longer run for larger and fast boats. The short run will be from Discovery Bay to Sugar Barge Resort, to Tower Park for lunch and then back to Disco. The longer run will be from Discovery Bay to Pittsburg Marina, Stockton Hotel for lunch and then Back to Disco.

The poker run would not be successful without the support of our many sponsors. Last year’s sponsors are listed on our web site. On Thursday, prior to thr Run, there is a special Sponsor VIP party at Discovery Bay Yacht Club to recognize those who helped support this great event.
