Would anyone be able to tell me how this event has ran over the past few years?

It seems pretty amazing from what I am able to find online.

Good Afternoon Poker Runners!

The 1000 Islands Poker Run in Kingston Ontario is fast approaching, and with exciting news that “The Tragically Hip” has confirmed their final performance at the K-Rock Centre Saturday night, therefore hotel rooms are going to be in very short supply!

Get your hotel reservation done at the Delta Hotel with Douglas Chow at 613-549-8100 Ext 1. Let him know that you’re with Poker Runs America to get the room block!

If you’re not able to book with the Delta Hotel, the Holiday Inn at 11 Benson Street in Kingston will be the next best place to be and they will put you on a waiting list for the Delta Waterfront.

Mention 'Poker Run' to get the discount deal for the weekend stay! There number is 613-546-3662 Ext 0

We cannot stress it enough! Please register for the event and get your hotel reservations ASAP!

Call us with questions. 1-800-354-9145¬ FREE ext 252

So who is doing this run? Is it worth the effort to even put the Biotch in the creek for this event? No offense intended, just not picking upon much activity for this run here. Years ago this was THE run up here on the river, now???

Downtown Kingston is going to be crazy this weekend. The Tragically Hip's last concert is drawing an expected crowd of 25,000 between the concert venue and the live CBC showing being setup behind City Hall. The poker run with 50+ boats and the spectator crowd it draws. And Fort Henry has some kind of event going on with a giant 300 foot long waterslide.....
