Grand Lakes Welcome Back Weekend

The official and annual re-opening of Grand Lake, dubbed Welcome Back Weekend for over twenty years, is scheduled to unfold March 2nd. The traditional Poker Run, an event which attracted nearly 400 participants in the event’s inaugural year, remains the backbone of one of the most popular off season weekends ever unveiled on Oklahoma’s premiere lake.

Things get off to a start on Friday morning with a bus trip to Neodesha, Kansas for our annual dream tour of the Cobalt Boat factory. We strongly recommend your going on this tour. We will have a box breakfast on the bus, A tour of the factory including lunch in the plant. We will then return to the Cherokee Yacht Club for a fantastic dinner that evening. There will be a bus from Arkansas and Oklahoma. The Arkansas bus will return to Rogers after the dinner. You must make a reservation to attend this event.

The Ice Breakers Poker Run will begin Saturday, March 3rd at 11am and conclude at 5pm. This year’s competition will be conducted as in past years with tokens being picked up at each of the stops, which includes Arrowhead Yacht Club, Cedar Port Marina, VIP Pizza-Hammerhead Marina, Mooney's Sunset Bar & Grill and Cherokee Yacht Club, and then exchanged for playing cards to determine the winning hands will be held at the "Titanic" Party at the Cherokee Yacht Club. You must go to all 5 stops to be dealt a hand.

***You MUST be 21 years or older to participate in the poker run*** 

Join us after the poker run at the "Titanic" party in the Grand Ballroom at the Cherokee Yacht Club starting at 6pm. 

Arrowhead Boat Sales will have an in-water boat show on Sat. and Sun. Which “In-Water Boat Show” means……………..FREE BOAT RIDES!!!
