Annual Events

Each year The Riverwalk Yacht Club hosts some special annual events to help support our community.  These events are familiy-oriented events and are held to help raise money to help some of our local volunteer organizations.  If you would like to help sponsor or participate in any of these events, please notify one of the club officers.


Annual Poker Run

Poker Run

The Riverwalk Yacht Club Poker Run is held in June each year at the Joe Wheeler State Lodge. Many people come by boat and stay on the transit docks, and many come by car and stay at the lodge. We have a 'poker' tournament for participants who receive their playing cards upon arrival. We have event t-shirts in which we have area sponsors for. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for our Poker Run, notify us at
