Teague Custom Marine is proud to be the continuing title sponsor of The Big Cat Poker Run. From August 17 to 18, 2018 The Big Cat Poker Run once again returns to the California Delta to benefit the Discovery Bay Lions Club. All boaters are welcome to participate. Join us at the event and help to raise thousands of dollars for local charities.
The weekend of fun begins Friday, August 17 with a lunch run to Sugar Barge RV Resort & Marina in Bethel Island, with an optional tour of the Delta after lunch. This is a great time to familiarize yourself with the local area, where resident boaters lead visiting boats on a tour of the Delta. A welcoming party and registration follows that evening. Saturday is the Poker Run allowing plenty of time to socialize. Poker draw and party follows Saturday evening at the Discovery Bay Marina.
Two routes will be available, a shorter run and also the traditional long course run. The short run will be from Discovery Bay to Sugar Barge Resort, to University Plaza Waterfront Hotel in Stockton for lunch and then back to Discovery Bay. The longer run will be from Discovery Bay to Pittsburg Yacht Club, to University Plaza Waterfront Hotel in Stockton for lunch and then Back to Discovery Bay.

Traditionally, Big Cat is a huge success: with a strong showing of boats, perfect weather, fun boating, parties with live music, and best of all a safe event with zero incidents. Bob Teague explained to speedonthewater.com part of what makes Big Cat unique: “We’re out here with everything from ships to personal watercraft and there are 1,500 miles of freshwater waterways. It’s just a class of people who know about boating, have nice equipment and know how to get along the waterways…The water is fantastic, the crowd is amazing and we have the kind camaraderie people would die for.” We can’t wait this year’s event!
