The poker tournament will be held Saturday, January 19, at the Knights of Columbus hall in Chillicothe. The field of players is limited to the first 75 to register. Pre-registration fees are $40 per player. At the door the entry fee is $50. A concession stand will be operated throughout the event, which begins promptly at 12 noon. Doors will open at the Knight's Hall at 11 a.m. A variety of prizes will be available for the top players with cash buy-backs as an option.
