Default Upstate NY or East Coast Poker Run Participants

If your looking for a fun run with some real boat enthusiasts, that won't cost you $1000.00 entry fee or more,check out the thread in the Poker Run section for the 2010 Swamp Run on Oneida Lake. I have been attending this run since 2005 and I can assure you that you can run hard and play even harder afterwards. The stops are all great, and most importantly it is to benefit Make A Wish. If you need some motivation to help sick kids may I suggest watching the movies Extraordinary Measures or My Sisters Keeper. These tear jerkers will want to make you quit your job and become a full time volunteer. I'm hoping it will at least get you to sign up and attend this run. If you can't make it, but would still like to help the children out you can contact NY Powerboat here on the board. Sponserships are still needed as well as items for the raffle. If you can attend or even make a donation I thank you. Some great things have been done here on OSO over the years, lets keep it going!!!! Hope to see you on the water in three weeks.

We will be there having a great time supporting a very worthy cause.

Everything Chuck mentioned is spot-on for this fun day and night on the water.

This is truly a fantastic run! Some of the best people putting this event together!
You can count on Team Mahopac Marine being there. May just be catching a ride with someone though!

Sharkey-Images will be covering this event !

I put this event on my schedule ever since the Snow Mobile Poker Run over the winter where all of those that registered for that event received a discount coupon from Sharkey-Images that can be used towards any purchase through the website good until 12/31/2010.

I confirmed today with Nolan that I would make the trip up to come cover this event.

I realize this event is still in the growing stages and the organizers would like to try to get as much money raised for Make-A-Wish this year.

Therefore, I have waived my photo shoot fee for the organization and I will be coming to capture as much coverage as possible in order to help with promoting this event in the future.

I will be working on the details and locations for the best shots for the participants and their boats.

It will be great to get a chance to shoot many different boats that I have not had an opportunity to shoot before.

Let's pray for some great weather. Sunshine always makes for good pics.

I will look to provide special Pre-Paid Photo Packages as well.

100% money back guarantee. See me for details...


See everyone there !
