Some ideas passed across thus far are for being able to participate in certain classes within a Poker Run are years of performance boat experience and or the certification of a recognized performance boating school like TRES MARTIN's to be able to run in the un-restricted class. Even armature auto racing has classification guidelines governed by experience, skill level and racing school certification. Just some ideas on the table. How would you feel if you are running 30 feet away from the boat next to you at 110 MPH and find out later the guy driving just picked up the boat a week ago and never had driven a boat over 60 MPH in all his years of boating? One bad judgment on his part could lead to a very sad ending for both of you.
