When I went on my first poker run in 1992 I cost me $50.00 we had 20 boats that made 4 stops. We started in one place and finished in another. We all slept on our boats, and top prise was $300.00. And MAN was that a lot of fun! Now days you hafta fork over a minimum of 250.00 (I've paid as much as $1,000.00) Has to start and stop at the same place because god forbid if the trailer queens stay in the water overnite, let alone the "I'm not sleeping in my boat" guy's. And you can't make stops because who can accommodate 100 boats.
Yeah, it usta be a lot more fun.
