Be sure and take a look at coming to our Poker Run the first weekend in August which is part of a multi-faceted boating event. It includes the charter event which is the Sailboat Regatta that started it all and later the Chesapeake Bay Poker Run was added and the HRPA took over it's organization last year doubling participation and probably will double again.
The run includes TWO classes of poker runners with two separate courses. The performance course is aggressive and covers approx. 100 miles of multi-types of water. There will be 5 prizes ranging from $1k for top hand to $100 for 5th best. The CRUISER/FAMILY class will be running a shorter less aggressive course and will include cruisers and small family runabout types. This ensures recreational boaters of all kinds get to play and hang out. None of the above types will get in each others way either. There's plenty of water to go around for both.
It's THE ONLY multi-boater event on the east coast (maybe nation) known.
Oh did I mention the first annual fishing tournament has been included this year completing the big three of boating enthusiasts.
This event will include TWO party's with TWO top local bands with food included and beverages for sale. First party is Friday night (Aug 1st) which includes captains meeting and saturday night (Aug 2nd) for post run rewards and entertainment. This year we've added a Margarita style Tiki-bar to hang out at between the post-run period and the party start at the marina.
Here's the kicker........This year's entrance fee is only $150 which includes one hand, 4-shirts, 4-lunches, and 4-entry's to the party's. And finally......ALL proceeds go to the St. Judes Children's Research Hospital for Cancer with only approximately 6-10% overhead.
