Over the years the 1000 Island Run has moved up and down the St. Lawrence River. Been based in Brockville, Kingston and Gananoque. Spent many years in Gananoque till the PRA folks figured it was worth more than the community was willing to ante up, so I hear. Apparently Kingston seemed to be a better fit for the high roller Poker Runners these days, being a big city and all. Personally I think PRA is it's own worse enemy here. They have become so elite that the average guy just does not fit anymore. Don't get me wrong here, I'd hate to see it die, it is entertaining to go out on the water and watch. I do miss the days when this run was just a bunch of hot rod boaters just out for a day of fun.
