Default 2017 Tickfaw 200 May 4th-6th (General Help and Info)

Seems that people were using an older thread (2015) to talk about the Tickfaw Poker Run. I started this to get updated information and for people to help out the noobs (me). The 2017 Tickfaw will be my first time there so any info would be nice. I am looking to rent a house and need to able to dock my boat with access to shore power. What is the best day to get down there, I was thinking about Wednesday or Thursday. Any insight would be nice.

Default 2017 Tickfaw 200 poker, may 4-6th springfield Louiana

The dates are May 4-6 2017. As always for the past 25+ years the first full weekend in May. We run ran or shine with the cards stops open on the 5th and the 6th. You have the option to run it the traditional way in one day or split it up into two days. Card turn in is Saturday the 6th late afternoon time TBA. There will be bands Thursday Friday and Saturday night at the fun house located in blood river marin. With the bar open all day and night.

Hands will be $240 per hand. You will get a map/poster and acess into the fun house for the bands at no extra charge. There will be a drivers meeting(s) this year. after this past year and all the unfortunate accident its time to go over some things about the waterways.

Boat launch will be open Wednesday till the canal is full. That means it may be Friday at noon or Friday at 5pm when the boats return from the run that day. Not to not to worry there is a public launch that is very nice I mile down the street. If you launch at the marina we take the trailer from you and use a tractor. Keeps it flowing fast and less issues.


Boat parking anyplace you can stick the boat that not ropped off. the canals next door are also good to park In unless the home owner has sign or ropped off the dock.

Campers spot are first right of refusal from the year before. So better let me know! It's $100 for the weekend. At this time it's full. We have a waiting list for for cancellations. http://www.bloodrivermarina.com has a full list of hotels and a printable mail in registration. It's says 2016 right now but will be ok to send in till the we people update it.

Sponsorships are available to go around the map and on the T-shirt the banners in the marina the website and Facebook email me for more info on that.


Any other questions Email me at [email protected] or call 225-445-2210

I booked our rooms at the Hampton in Hammond yesterday and told her I was coming in for the poker run and she applied the discounted rate so that should work for now. They are filling up fast!

It will be here before you know it.

Hope to knock some of the dust off the boat before then. Getting ready to start rebuilding the house from the flood but I'm ready for summer and boat season already.
We will be there!!!
