We love your country and the 1000 Islands Poker Run(it used to be my favorite run out of 12 I do all around the country). This past year the run itself was great as usual(except clearing USA at A-Bay) but the local police really made havng fun tough. They were all over us for drinking on the docks after the run and they intimidated us going into and out of the the Casino for the Poker Run dinner.They only gave Poker Runs America a very limited liquor sales permit and most guest never got a drink. We know the locals love us and we love them, but if the powers that be don't want us we will think hard about committing the time and $ to make this run again considering all the other great runs that are around.

Hey guy's,good to hear from you.JAMMIN I know what your saying about that stuff.I think being there first time with it they were a little sketchy.Maybe next year things will be better.I will pas on the word to the powers to be and hopefully some things will work out better.I do know that the A-Bay stop is supposed to be out.At least that is what was posted on power boatings site. Jeff,Sorry I haven't been on,Been in a rink alot of the time.Once the run is over,Its to the rink for me.I am in a rink about 5 days out of 7 sometimes more.I play 4 times a week myself but the big blunt of it is I am one of the trainers for our local JR club. I have been up your way a couple times,Went to see a couple friends of mine take on the Sens. One plays for the Hurricanes and one for the Leaf's. Hope all is well with you.Let me know when your going to be down again or shoot me a message on here.I'll try to stay in touch more often. Take care and hope to hear from more of you.

I heard the same thing A bay is out , its too bad but it was a zoo there, I docked my boat nearbye and tried to get on the dock to see some of the OSO members damn lines were too long,
I had better luck riding up with the boats from Clayton to Abay
But everyone knows you cant talk over all those big blocks
Fishermans Wharf is all booked and those poor folks think there gonna be right on top of things
