Default Poker Run's

There are so many Poker Runs(across the US and I was wondering which ones(maybe top 6) you feel are the best attended and the most fun. I have only attended a few last year and I am looking to hit a few more this year.

Dan: Good topic.

DaveP and the gang at NJPPC do the best job with anything's that's available in the NJ area - I'll do one of their runs in a heartbeat.
Outside of that, I would agree that 1000 Islands is a "must do" just for the scenery, but Poker Runs America also does a great job with the event itself.
I hope to do some events with the Chesapeake Bay Power Boat Association this year. I've met some of the members, and they appear to be a great group. Hampton Roads is a great area too, and BillR and the HRPA are a great, friendly group.

My biggest concern is that the event be ORGANIZED. I've been to a few that made me uncomfortable (booze, racing, poor communications, etc.), and I won't be back to those. I go to have a good time, not worry all day.
Retired! Boating full-time now.
