Default Smoke-On-The-Water... The BEST

It's official, Powerboat Magazine rated Smoke-On-The-Water Poker Run as one of the best poker runs in the country. I attended this event last year in Grand Haven, Michigan for the first time and I was blown away by the hospitality, the excellent food, and the awesome boats that were on display. I seen in Februarys issue of Powerboat Magazine an ad for Smoke-On-The-Water for this summers event on page 129, check it out. I'll be there, hope to see you to.

I thought the same thing after witnessing it first hand last year, that is why i wrote the little promo, couldn't believe it that it made it into PB, guess it was my 2 seconds of fame.

It is a great show. We run from Holland to Grand Haven after they get their cards in Holland. I have a 20ft Zodiac so i can get right up next to them without freaking them out. I actually bump up against my friends who enter. Next year I am working on my friend who owns a 50 ft Hussler. The other has a 56 ft Custom cruiser type boat that was the pace boat last year and runs 70+ in a full on cruiser. The Cig with the V-12s was a work of art. More plumbing in that thing than a small school The cats ran so fast they didn't even look like they were part of the show. Can't wait for next year
