Post Poker Runs Are Here To Stay!!! PRA's Response to EBM

"I just finished reading Bill Taylor's article in Poker Runs America and this email pretty much sums it up!!!


I just received a copy of the latest Poker Runs America Magazine in the mail today. In this latest issue I found a holiday present for poker run organizers, dealerships and manufacturers alike. Starting on page 38 there is a 6 page story titled 'Poker Runs are Here to Stay" writtten by the magazine's publisher Bill Taylor.

Bill addresses the EBM story head on and calls the EBM story "wrong all on counts." Bill backs up his claims with numerous examples of safety at poker runs across North America as well as sharing his 19 years of experience being an event producer. Bill also states that "this type of editorial sensationalism in an avid performance magazine should not exist." He also states that "the detrimental articles should be left to the mass media."

Bill outlines how all APRA events (PRA events as well as APRA sanctioned events) are conducted and are extremely distant from the "free for alls" as claimed in EBM.

I would like to commend Bill Taylor and the entire Poker Runs of America organization for directly addressing this issue. The story is extremely well done and is based on the real facts of our sport.

In February all of the major performance manufacturers, dealers and poker run organizers will be meeting at the APRA Safety forum. You can bet that with the combined experience of all three groups that the sport will continue navigate down a safe and exciting path!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!"

"this type of editorial sensationalism in an avid performance magazine should not exist." He also states that "the detrimental articles should be left to the mass media."

These two quotes are dead on!
Look forward to reading the article myself and supporting PRA. See ya in the 1000 Islands.

Tantrum,

Have you received you magazine yet?


Some great news for a change:

Boating deaths drop in Northeast

Recreational boating fatalities are down for the second consecutive year in the Northeast waters covered by the 1st Coast Guard District.



There were 39 fatalities in 2005, down from 41 in 2004. The 2005 figure is a 40-percent reduction from 1998ís 65 recreational boating fatalities, says Al Johnson, the districtís recreational boating safety specialist.



The district is made up of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, a portion of New York (including Long Island) and the northeastern section of New Jersey.



In 2005 manually powered vessels, such as canoes and kayaks, accounted for 20 deaths, while motorized vessels accounted for 19.



Most recreational boating fatalities are the result of a fall overboard or a capsize caused by inexperience, inattention or inappropriate behavior, Johnson says.
