TEMPLETON LANDING, BUFFALO, NEW YORK
AUGUST 8TH & 9TH, 2014
I would like to take the chance to thank you in advance for participating in this year’s event. We are looking forward to another fun and safe run. All the stars aligning for this great event last year and we broke all our records. The payouts were bigger, our donation was bigger, and we have 102 boats and over 350 attendees
This year we plan to once again grow this event with more boats and larger pay outs. We are excited to announce that Tim Sharkey of Sharkey Images will be returning for the forth year in a row. So those of you with new boats should get online and pick out a photo package. He will be pre-selling packages through www.sharkey-images.com with a money back guarantee if you do not like your photos.
This year the registration process will be streamlined to reduce onsite check-in’s and also the online booking. After payment is received we will be sending out a packet of paperwork that will need to be returned before July 1st. Tony and his event crew will be in contact with you throughout the process to make sure everyone is prepared and ready to enjoy August 8th. Stay tuned to your email and the events Facebook page for some big surprises this year. Knowing that it is difficult to obtain a final count for the passengers on your boat prior to July 1st, 2014 we will allow you to add passengers at a later date without penalty. We ask that the boat and driver are registered. This will allow us to plan for parking and docking and to ensure our event runs smoothly and in a timely fashion.
As always, this is a US Coast Guard Approved Event and PFD’s are required when on plane. Boats that do not follow the Rules and Safety Regulations will be disqualified. NO EXCEPTIONS! All boats participating in this event are required to carry $300,000 or greater in watercraft liability coverage maintained in full force and effect during the term of the event. Boats without insurance will not be able to run. We will refuse ANY boat without INSURANCE PROOF and or PROPER PAPERWORK.
Please have all paper work to us prior to July 1st, this year we will not except same day registrations on Friday or Saturday. Please visit our website www.buffalopokerrun.com or visit us on FACEBOOK (WNYOPA) for pictures from last year along with www.sharkey-images.com. We also try to keep you updated on new details.
