POKER RUN (posted August 14th)

Feeling lucky?  Here's your run.  On Friday, August 26th, a Poker Run will be held on Horseshoe Bend, with the runner/walker having the best poker hand taking home half the pot.  (The Lake of the Ozarks Soccer Association will receive the other half.)

Not a gambler?  You can still choose to run or walk without participating in the card game.  You can also choose to run only parts of the course.
