Powerboat magazine once did the best 10 Poker Runs in America.
Key West FPC. 1000 Islands Poker Runs America, Atlantic City NJPPC. Scope, thats the ones I remember but I like Atlantic City, Miami boat show poker run and 1000 Islands.

Jammin on the James! 2 day event with one hell of a dock party
run down the river to the bay, then stay overnight, then get up and everone ride back up the river.

I may be a little bias but 1000 Islands.....over 50,000 spectators and around 100 boats every year. Great people in the run and observing it. Many friends are made here whether it's between boaters or if it's someone just standing by your boat with a keen interest in it. Plus the beautifull St. Lawrence river with crystal clear water.

1000 Islands & Jammin on the James are 2 very different poker runs; and they both ROCK!

Been on the Chesapeake the whole time.. Rock the Bay, Thunder in the City, We did the Season Opener in Sarasota for PRA. Someone posted to do a big one then some little ones.. Good Idea.. Find one that is Nationally known... Try that.. Then do some smaller local or even 4-7hours from home.. Keep the cost down and meet a whole new world of boaters... That is what have been doing.. This year we will venture out to other states... I am doing one big one then 5 local events....

Good luck

Have to agree with 1000 Islands! Its a great time up there! Jax and Key West are on the short list for sure! One of these days......
