Second-year Incline coach Scott Conn has a fun way to raise the much-needed funds for his Highlanders — a poker tournament.

The Highlander Hail-Mary Poker Extravaganza is scheduled for Saturday, June 15, at the Grand Lodge Casino at the Hyatt Regency.

The event, which begins at 9 a.m., costs $100 to buy in, with all the proceeds benefitting the Incline High football program. The team will use the money to upgrade its outdated equipment and training tools.

More than $9,000 in prizes from local vendors will be given away for things like “bad beats,” which is to knock one of the football coaches out of the tournament, best hand, etc. The tournament winner will receive a $2,500 purse.

All participants must be 21 years of age. For questions or to register, contact Conn at 530-913-9694 or
