Default Attention ALL SOUTHEAST Boaters...

Now Hear This

One of the best poker runs in this area is right around the corner.

The Jacksonville Firefighters Charity Poker Run.

It does not get any better than this, Firefighters who many are boaters, bringing all us crazy offshore guys together in beautiful Jacksonville, Florida to have a GREAT time and raise money for a good charity.

My wife and I have done six poker runs and I have to tell you that all six combined did not equal the good time we had in Jacksonville last September.

These guys really know how to do it right.

I am sending in my reservation today and I have committed to Bill Pyburn to get at least 25 boats in down there from the North Carolina area. I think my count to date is around six to seven that I know of.

Guys I need your help. Mark your calender now and make your reservations for one of the best weekends you can have.

Rooms have been blocked at the Adams Mark river front hotel, they are $79.00, $89.00 and $99.00 per night depending on your view. It is a GREAT hotel. The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the marina. This is the Jacksonville Jaguar Stadium Marina!!!!!!!!!

There is a ton of parking at no additional charge at the stadium for your truck and trailers and they plan to have 24 hour security for both your boat and rigs. The ramp to use is Arlington Marina, it is very easy to get to, only a couple of miles from the stadium and they will shuttle you back and forth to make it very easy to get your boat and truck to the stadium.

Friday, September 19th, fun run to St. Augustine!!!!
This is a very pretty run!

Friday Night, captains meeting on water front and party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, September 20th, Poker Run south of Jacksonville on St. Johns River with a stop for lunch at the famous "Crab Shack"!! The stop at the crab shack alone is worth the trip!!!!!!!!! This place is AWESOME and has the longest dock I have every seen. Last year I think we had 80 boats there at one time with very few rafted up.

And it keeps getting better!!!! For those of you who can stay Sunday, there is another fun run South to Silver Glen. I have not been there yet, but hear it is a beautiful place with crystal clear water. I cannot wait to see it this year.

First Place Prize Money $5000.00
Second Place $2500.00 ( I think ?)
Third Place $1000.00

And remember we are doing this for charity!

The entry fee is only $250.00

PLEASE sign up today for one of the best weekends you will have this season! And help me get the boats down there that I promised Bill I would.

Contact: Bill Pyburn

E-Mail: [email protected]

Cell #904-388-6637

Or feel free to call me here at the office and I will be glad to fax an entry form to you.

Mark Terry 704-881-0031

Lets get signed up now so they will know how many people to expect and have plenty of food and beer!


For those of you worried about salt water, FORETABOUTIT!

The poker run is in fresh water south!

I have had my boat in salt water six time now and the key is "Cleanup" & "Flush Out". No big deal and you will never know you were there.

Barry, Flashback, Sonny, Brian Jones, Mike Nichols, and all those I'm missing, Let me hear from you!

The above picture was at one of the fuel stops last year on the St. Johns River.

I believe they are going to bring a fuel truck in at the crab shack this year with 93 octane!

Hey Mark,

Carolina Power Boat Assoc will be well represented . We have strong commitments already. I believe most have signed up. This will be a great poker run to attend.

Mike,

First place last year was just $1000.00

I would be happy with third this year!

Drag that Baja on down here son!

OK, now we are getting somewhere, I've had two calls.

By the way, the charity is "MDA".


Many of these guys are with the Jacksonville Performance Powerboat Club.

Allan,

I would love to see another Baja in the run, there are going to be a bunch of Velocity's there.

You would really find it worth the drive.

Don't wait a few weeks, it is only four weeks away and the entry fee goes up after August 30th.

Come on down!
