I would like to take the chance to thank you in advance for interest in the Inaugural Erie Poker Run. We are looking forward to a fun and safe run based out of an incredible venue and waterfront. We are planning on 60 boats and 200 people. The runs primary course will be about 110 Miles.
This years charity will be Bayfront Maritime Center (http://bayfrontcenter.org/) and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to them. Please check out their website to see all the great things they are doing to help the community.
Our goal is to make this an annual event and grow into the Bayfront Convention Center. To do this local participation is essential along with support from regional performance boaters. We are excited to announce that Tim Sharky of Sharky Images will be our official photographer. He will be pre-selling packages through www.sharkey-images.com with a money back guarantee if you do not like your photos.
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 boats rafted up. If you choose this less expensive option you will also have to book that here. We will have enough slips for everyone via these two options. Booking early will allow us to plan for parking and docking and to ensure our event runs smoothly and in a timely fashion.
We have secured a few extra slips at Presque Isle Yacht Club. They have been added to this registration page.
