- The Nut House was lost, capsized off the shore of Tuolumne County's Don Pedro Reservoir. The overloaded houseboat had been for the dozens aboard her Saturday for the lake's annual Poker Run, three.
- The houseboat, which was near the shore on Lake Don Pedro in the Mexican Gulch area, was being used Saturday as a check-in station for a poker run event, the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office said. At some point, too many people were on one side of the boat, causing it to tip over and take on water, the sheriff's office said.

Lake Don Pedro Poker Runs
For all of those that were planning to participate this weekend, the location has been moved. The registration/BBQ/party spot has been moved to 'White rock' behind the graveyard area. You can find Graveyard creek on most maps and it will be in the area where the creek hits the lake. Just look for a bunch of houseboats tied together. The houseboat named 'Patriot' is running the show. Big American flag painted on the side of the boat.
For those interested that haven't heard about it here's the details. And there is usually room to shore camp in that area.

** The location of our annual Poker Run has changed due to the low water level. We
have a great new location behind Graveyard. Out through Middle Bay, pass the Rocks,
and wrap around behind Graveyard. You canÂ’t miss us! There is no shade, if anyone
has a pop up shade tent that we can borrower, it would be greatly appreciated. We
would like to put them up late Friday, early Saturday morning. Poker hands are $10.00,
each hand comes with one BBQ ticket. Additional BBQ tickets can be purchased for
$5.00. We have fun new T-Shirts ($15.00) and Tanks (menÂ’s and womenÂ’s $12.00).
Come get them early so you donÂ’t miss out! We will have access to our email
([email protected]) until Thursday night. If you have any questions,
