NYC Powerboat Poker Run 2011
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NPBA Enthusiasts Please Respond Right Away yes or no
As we contemplate bringing back the famed NEW YORK CITY POWERBOAT POKER RUN RALLY, June 18th, 2011

Would you participate?

Would you attend?

The key components that made it famous would remain:

The Patriotic Parade at 10 knots from the Statute of Liberty to the George Washington Bridge;

The Navigator s Challenge from the George Washington Bridge to the Tappan Zee Bridge;

and the extended poker run course that travels all the way up the Hudson River to Peekskill, NY
and ultimately back to Liberty Landing Marina for the Party and Awards.
We would also have a Friday evening Kick-Off Party at the marina with a display of boats and hardware.

Please reply asap.

Comments appreciated also.

Oh yeah…we would give away a $5,000.00 cash purse, awarding $2,500.00, $1,500.00 and $1,000.00
to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers/pokerhands and TROPHIES for special categories including
Best Looking Boat, Best Dressed Crew, Kings and Queens of the Hudson, etc.

Please reply asap to questions 1 and 2, we’ve got work to do
Best regards,

Billy,

I am not sure if you have to hold to that date, but I think you might pick up a few more boats if there were 2 weeks between NY and AC.

I know I have heard from some in the past that wanted to do your run but didn't want to risk breaking something and having too little time to repair for Atlantic City.

Just a thought.

If I am not booked for anything that weekend, you know I will be there !

I agree with Sharkey. I would like to do the NYC run but not the week before A/C because that is my favorite and they are too close together.

Rule of thumb with the NPBA NYC PR is that it has always been Father's Day weekend. It's been that weekend for as long as I can remember.

Wish I could be there Billy, I moved to FL & my bro is moving to MD next month

Interested,what is the entree fee?

I can't do the AC run because of a business trip,But I agree you would have a better turnout if it wasn't so close to the NJPPC run
