QUYON March 3, 2018
Card-playing fish-eaters filled the back portion of the Quyon Legion Saturday afternoon, where bets were raised and bluffs were called at the first fundraising tournament for the association.
Thirty players filled tables at the Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament, where over 20 prizes were up for grabs and bragging rights even more valuable.
“This is the first year and we did it as a fundraiser for the Legion,” said Calvin Johnston, Second Vice-President of the Legion and the event organizer.
Johnston explained that in years past, the Canada Day Committee had organized a fundraising poker tournament, but hadn’t planned one for this year. Since he knew that the game had a lot of fans in the area, he decided that the Legion would put one on instead.
