      Tangle Poker Paddle

      The Tangle Lakes are a wild, enchanted country, high in the foothills of the Alaska range. About a five hour drive from Anchorage and three and a half hours from Fairbanks on the eastern end of the Denali Highway, they are a good central location. This race will be a poker run. Any non motorized canoe, kayak or SUP is admissible. Racers will choose a course that suits their talent and strategy. Cards will be collected from various waypoints throughout the lake system. Four cards will be positioned within relatively easy reach. Three more cards will be obtainable from different, more difficult locations. A minimum of five cards will be required to play the game. For the more aggressive racers, a total of seven cards is possible. One wild card will be placed in one of the waypoints. The entire route could include five lakes, two portages, and two rivers in about 15 miles. Hands will be played that evening. May the best hand win!We will have prizes. And we will be looking for sponsors. This will be a charity event and all proceeds will go to support the YAK - Youth of Alaska. The cost to play is $35 per person. We’ll get our registration form out soon. Plan on spending the weekend at the campground. Enjoy this beautiful area of our state, support our youth, and get to know some fellow Alaska Paddlers.
