Get Back to Backwater Jack's for the 2018 Spring Harbor Hop

The unofficial start to the 2018 boating season is coming on Saturday, May 5 - the 21st Annual Spring Harbor Hop! Our Lake of the Ozarks waterfront bar & restaurant happens to be one of the stops on this awesome poker run on the water, and we're planning to make it a day to remember. You'll be making quite a few stops during the Harbor Hop, but Backwater Jack's is the one that will make you want to sit down and stay for a while! 


The Hop
Here is how this incredible annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks works. You begin at one of the more than 40 participating waterfront bars, restaurants, or marinas on the list. There you will pay an optional $20 donation to register and receive the first card to begin your poker hand. Anyone can play, and you are welcome to register for more than one hand. 

Next, you will spend the rest of the day "hopping" from stop to stop, picking up a card each time that you do. Once you collect your 7th card, you will turn in your completed poker hand at that stop. If you're not completely happy with the cards that you've been dealt, you may purchase an additional 8th card for $5. Take as much time as you like cruising from place to place, as long as your completed poker hand is turned in by 7 pm.  


The Prizes
The dollar amount of each of the prizes listed below depends on the amount of money raised from entry fees. Winners will be alerted by mail, and the prizes, in the form of gift certificates to local establishments, will be divided as follows:

1st Place: 10%
2nd Place: 9%
3rd Place: 8%
4th Place: 7% each
5th - 10th Place: 5% each
4 Worst Hands: 4% each
Random Drawing for 10 Hands: 2% each
(all ties will share the allocated percentage for the placing)

The Bonus
In addition to the regular prize winners, a section winner will be recognized. To be eligible to be a section winner, a player must draw all seven (7) cards within one of the four sections listed at the bottom of this blog.



The Best Card Stop
Make sure that you plan your route so that you have plenty of time to hang out with us at Backwater Jack's. You might consider starting your hop here and making your way back to us after your final stop, or possibly making us your last stop. Either way, you've set your evening up so that you can continue the party all night long with all of the wonderful people that are known to hang out at our awesome establishment.

We'll be serving up your favorite foods all day (and all week) long, as well as the most refreshingly tasty drinks in town. For entertainment on Harbor Hop Saturday, we have the incredible Win, Lose, or Draw gracing the Backwater Jack's stage.
