2017 WNY Poker Run by Elite Poker Runs - Aug 11th-13th - Buffalo, NY

The Western New York Poker Run was created this year to keep a poker run in Buffalo. Since the Western New York Offshore Powerboat Association will no longer be running the Buffalo Poker Run. We at Elite Poker Runs thought it would be great to keep everything about the Buffalo Poker Run the same but brand it under a new name and create another Elite Run.

Our founder Tony Scioli was the event coordinator of the Buffalo Poker Run from 2010 to 2015 when he stepped down from his board position to concentrate on Elite Poker Runs. We are expecting this run to draw 100+ boats like the Buffalo Run had in the years past. The Venue is one of the most accommodating in the area. We get full run of this waterside destination.

The runs primary course will be about 100 Miles. We will have an approved backup course if needed due to wind. The beautiful part about this run is that we have the ability to run the rivers shielded waters if needed. This years charity is yet to be determined but a portion of the proceeds will be donated to a charity. We are hoping to raise a ton of money for charity this year. Local participation is essential along with support from regional performance boaters to keep this event growing. Our official photographer is Pete Boden.

We ask that you register early to help with the planning. This way we can concentrate on creating an enjoyable safe weekend. If you choose to get a slip you can book your slips directly with the marina. Templeton Landings Courtesy Dock will be free for all registered boats until it is full. We will also have the floating dock at Canelside reserved for overflow. Expect to have boats rafted 10 deep, so if you do not like someone rafted off you, please secure a slip. Individual slips at Erie Basin Marina (http://www.smithboys.com/erie-basin.htm) will be limited. Booking early will allow us to plan for parking and docking and to ensure our event runs smoothly and in a timely fashion.

This will be a US Coast Guard Approved Event and PFDs are required when on plane. Boats that do not follow the Rules and Safety Regulations will be disqualified. NO EXCEPTIONS! All boats participating in this event are required to carry $300,000 or greater in watercraft liability coverage maintained in full force and effect during the term of the event. Boats without insurance will not be able to run. We will refuse ANY boat without INSURANCE PROOF and or PROPER PAPERWORK. This run is an insured event and NO unregistered Crew members will be accepted on boats.

Please have all paper work to us prior to run, we will not excepting same day registrations on Saturday. You can register until 8pm Friday, Aug 11th or when the event sells out. Please visit our website www.elitepokerruns.com or visit us on http://buffalo.elitepokerruns.com/ for updated information. If you have any questions call or email us.

Thumbs up Western New York Poker Run

Guys, don't forget about this run. This is the former Buffalo Poker Run. It is being run by Elite Poker Runs this year but make no mistake, it will be the same run as in the past that has grown to be one of the premier runs in the Great Lakes/Northeast. You won't be disappointed. Same great venue, same great water (Niagara River and Lake Erie) and a great time! This run typically draws 100 or more boats from other states and Canada so don't wait too long to sign up....

For anyone new to the Buffalo Run or returning to Buffalo for the poker run this is the same event as the Buffalo Poker Run. For anyone who has put together a large event you understand that it takes a dedicated team to do this. Elite Poker Runs is putting the run on this year. Tony and his crew do a wonderful job. It is at the same place (Templeton Landing / Erie Basin Marina). You can expect one hell of a time. Tony never disappoints. Get signed up. There are a few other large events going on in the City that weekend. Book your hotel rooms asap. They always sell out year after year that weekend.

I believe the discount rate above might have been speaking of the hotel blocks. Im not 100% on that. I do know that the hotels book out fast so register for the run and get your hotel. The party and run are first class all the way.
