Memorial poker tournament set for July 30

July 8, 2010

A Texas Hold ‘Em Memorial Tournament has been set for July 30 at Stony Point, north of Baldwin City.

The tournament is a memorial to Jim Floersch, who lived around Baldwin City for years and died in late May. All proceeds go to his family. The tournament is being hosted by the Baldwin City Knights of Columbus, which Floersch belonged to.

There will be a happy hour from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. and card games will start at 7 p.m. Entry fee is $40 and there will be a one-time buy back fee of $20. Tickets are available at Santa Fe Market.

There also will be food and refreshments, door prizes, raffles and a silent auction. Stony Point is located at 1514 N. 600 Road.

I wonder if the Knight of Columbus have verified with the state that this type of Gambling is legal. I know they had the same problem in Texas and several VFW house were raided by the State Police for holding illegal Gambling even though all the money generated was for charity.
