Erie Poker Run (2018)
When?Start time: Friday 12:00pm (22 June)
End time: Sunday 5:00pm (24 June)
I would like to take the chance to thank you in advance for interest in the 4th Annual Erie Poker Run. We are looking forward to a fun and safe run based out of an incredible venue and waterfront. This event will be limited to 60 boats. The runs primary course will be about 110 Miles. Those who attended the last three years, experienced how Lake Erie can pick up, so this year we will have an approved backup course for Sunday if needed. We are also planning on scheduling something on the water Friday for lunch. With three days to boat we are confident that all who attend will be able to put on the miles.
This years charity will once again be The Bradley H. Foulk Children’s Advocacy Center of Erie County. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to them. Last two years we donated $10,450 and we are hoping to raise even more money for charity this year and looking into some great auction items.
Local participation is essential along with support from regional performance boaters to keep this event growing.
We ask that you register early to help with the planning. This way we can concentrate on creating an enjoyable safe weekend. You can book your slips using this online registration. Individual slips at Wolverine Park Marina www.lakeshoretowing.com/wolverine-park-marina/ will be limited. We will also have the courtesy dock located at the Sheraton Hotel that will have sponsor boats. Booking early will allow us to plan for parking and docking and to ensure our event runs smoothly and in a timely fashion.
