What is good about it? Can you give me some information on what to expect why it's your favorite etc...?

That could be easy to do as we would be at LOTO in August. Thus, it would easy to ship boat from there to Cumberland.

NJPPC and Jammin on the James have a loyal following for a reason it would be real tough for us to not fit them into our itinerary for 2011.

The Lake Cumberland Poker Run is a huge event for performance boats, but it is even bigger for non poker runners. It is the most busy weekend on the lake in the year. Many spectators from all over come to watch and party. The owner of the State Dock Marina thanked us all for coming, said was the first weekend that all the marinas were at full capacity since the economic downturn.
Lake Cumberland is very large and deep, 100 miles long, 2000 miles of shoreline. Clear water, banks are beautiful rock palisades. The lake is famous for it's houseboating. The Poker Run is run out of the State Dock. Call and get registered as early as possible so you can get a boattel(houseboat at the dock) or stay in the State Park Lodge or Cabins. All the Poker Run action is at the Marina dock which is one of the country's largest inland marinas. They feed you dinner on Friday, breakfast , lunch and dinner on Saturday.
There will be a lot of really nice hardware from all over the country. Some run hard others not. Race fuel is available at the dock pumps. The run is started by the Fish and Wildlife people who have figured out how to keep the course reasonably clear. They do a good job for us.
It's a dry county so it's BYOB. Bill Kingery brings top notch sound system for a party barge with video screen. He cranks it up on Friday. They have a good live band on Saturday. I think the thing about this one is that you can come put your boat in the water and never have to leave the dock all weekend. Pretty relaxing and easy to meet and talk to other poker runners. I don't think any ever are dissapointed.
