Poker Runners,
Please accept my sincere THANK YOU due to each and every one of you for making Powerboating for a Cure Poker Run the overwhelming sucess that it was! We sold out in about 60 days of opening registration this year. I expect the same to happen in 2016. Maybe, just maybe we will have additional docking next year and enable us to bust thru the glass ceiling.

I also want to thank all the folks that came from out of town!!! I know the time and effort it takes to make a trip of this caliber. I sincerely hope you had a GREAT time, and will help spread the word about the event.

This poker run is all about giving you the boaters and participants, the best few days that we can provide for you and raise some funds for a such a worthy charity. We couldn't have done it without you! We don't have final numbers, but at least $35,000.00 was raised and given to Susan G Komen and $5000 was given to the AGC scholarship. Each and every one of you should be proud of what you helped us do!

What a difference a year makes! It was SO good to see Grayson here with us and having fun with us. I'm sure you all enjoyed seeing and talking with him.

It was wonderful seeing everyone, lots of new faces in the crowd this year. It was a good time; especially the "worst hand" award! I think the bride to be was surprised.

I tried a little too hard to kill my liver Friday nite, but had fun in the process!! It sure is hard work having fun. The weather was great - except for the thunderstorm that rolled in at lunch time Saturday frown emoticon - but otherwise about perfect.

David's pictures were simply incredible. I hope everyone got a picture of your boat, those will certainly will be good conversation starters.

Also a big THANK YOU to the other members of the poker run committee - great job, everything ran smooth as butter!! I am sure you all are as tired as I am.

I look forward to seeing all your pictures and videos; please post them to refresh our memories and show everyone else what fun they missed.

Again, my heartfelt thanks to everyone! Hope everyone was safe and careful on your travels back home. We'll see you next year for Powerboating for a Cure 2016 and maybe we'll have the new Waterside Live open and ready to party with us!
