Slated for June 5-6, the inaugural Erie Poker Run sold out all 60 slots shortly after registration opened a few months ago. But performance boats are, well, performance boats, especially when it comes to bringing them out of dormancy for events that happen early in the boating season. Attrition during the past two weeks has opened up 13 spaces for performance-boat owners and their crews for the Pennsylvania-based event on Lake Erie.
The inaugural Erie Poker Run venue is spectacular, and thanks to last-minute cancellations space is still open for the event.
Of course organizer Anthony Scioli, who also handles the successful Buffalo Poker Run in Western New York, would love to fill each of those $350 slots before the run begins. But he’s not disappointed with the reception to his inaugural Erie event, much less freaked out about the last-minute loss of participants.
