1st Poker Run of the season Golden Eagle Run Set for Saturday, July 13 at Lake EufaulaThe gates are open and the lake level is receding! That means it’s time “To Get Your Poker On” for the first poker run of the season on Lake Eufaula.
Lake Eufaula Association will host the Golden Eagle Poker Run on Saturday, July 13. Registration is ongoing. Cost is $225 for six cards or $200 for five. That extra card gives you more opportunity to “Win”.

Entrants will bring those five cards to Beaver Bar & Grill at Eufaula Cove Marina and receive your sixth card (if you purchased it at registration) when your hand is revealed.
LEA is celebrating 20 years of the Golden Eagle Poker Run. “LEA started the Golden Eagle Poker Run on Lake Eufaula in 1999,” said Executive Director Connie Morris. “It was the first event of this kind on Lake Eufaula, so you can say it’s the “Original” Poker Run.”
“Every pre-entry up to and including Friday, July 12, will receive two tickets for BBQ sandwiches, chips, drink and dessert as part of the 20 Year Celebration (while supplies last),” said Deb Parry, Sales & Promotion Manager. “Just a little token of our appreciation for support of this fundraising event.”
