21st Annual Spring Harbor Hop
Saturday, May 5, 2018, brings with it the first big boating event of the season. It's a giant poker run on the lake consisting of stops at over 40 waterfront bars, restaurants, and marinas. Poker, prizes, live music, great food, incredible drinks, awesome people, and the chance to cruise the gorgeous Lake of the Ozarks... what more could you ask for!?!
Shorty Pants Marina is the perfect place to fill up your boat or PWC and maybe grab a few boating essentials before a day full of harbor hopping. Shorty Pants Lounge will be serving up all of your Cajun favorites beginning at 11 am, and we've got the always entertaining Steven Moore onstage to entertain you once you're done hopping.
How the Hop Happens
This exciting 1-day boating event consists of traveling to at least 7 stops on the list and picking up a card for your poker hand at each one. At your first stop, you will pay an optional $20 donation per 7-card hand and receive the first card. Your completed hand will be turned in at the stop where you get the 7th card, and this must be done by 7 pm. If you aren't thrilled with the hand you've been dealt, you may draw a bonus 8th card for an additional $5. Anyone can play, and you are allowed to collect more than one hand.
There are lots of different prizes available during the Spring Harbor Hop, and they are given out in the form of gift certificates to lake area establishments. Prize amounts are based on the amount of entry donations collected, and that amount is divided up among the following categories:
