Rumble on the River Poker Run with The Cottonwood Cove!

We are so excited to be hosting this event this year, and we can’t wait for you to join us! Rumble on the River Poker Run has been a fun and exciting annual event, it didn't work out the last couple of years, but now we’re ready to RUMBLE ON THE RIVER! Here are all of the details that you need to get ready because this event will be here before you know it and we want to see YOU!

Rumble on the River Poker Run Details - $30 Per Hand

Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 1st for our 3rd annual Rumble on the River benefit. This year's event will include a 5 stop poker run along the Missouri River, a silent auction, raffles, and live music by Hotel Desperado: A Tribute to the Eagles! Businesses are encouraged to participate by donating auction items that can be delivered to either Blair or Fort Calhoun Fire Departments or at The Cottonwood Cove. Additional details will be posted on the fire department's social media as well as our Facebook page, so make sure that you are following them all! Here are the links so that you can stay informed:

About This Event

This year's proceeds will benefit first responders from both Blair and Fort Calhoun Fire & Rescue Departments. This tight-knit family of volunteers provides safety, education, and assistance on the river and by land. Each department has experienced a huge uptick in both operational expenses and emergency responses with a sharp increase in recreational usage of the river. Unfortunately, their usual annual fundraisers such as the Street Dance, Pancake Feed, and National Night Out have all been canceled due to COVID-19.

Our Missouri River Sponsors!
  • Pop-n-Docks
  • River Bend
  • Surfside Club
  • River View Park
  • CountrySide Marina RV Park

This year’s run is extra special to us, as it will be ran in loving memory of Dave Schumacher, past owner, but lifelong friend, of The Cottonwood.
