March Madness

Between what little spare time you probably have and the bounty of upcoming go-fast boating happenings across the country, it’s never too early to start planning—and registering for the events you want to attend this season. The good news is registration for four wonderful events opened this month. For those of you who might have missed them, here’s a quick rundown.

Boyne Thunder Poker Run, July 12-13, Boyne City, Mich.
At this writing, the 16th annual Boyne Thunder Poker Run that includes legs on Lake Charlevoix, Round Lake and Lake Michigan is still open. But that could change quickly, so if you really want to be part of this amazing event you’ll want to register right now. The cost is $725 per boat and it includes dinner for the driver and copilot and one poker hand. Additional passengers are $150 per person. Getting to Boyne City early isn’t a bad idea as there’s a fun run on Thursday and party on Boyne Mountain, once again sponsored by American Custom Marine on Thursday night. Friday night’s Boyne City street celebration, which boasts displays of high-performance powerboats and vintage cars, is an authentic slice of Americana and the poker run—at least if Lake Michigan is playing nice—delivers unbeatable views of the Western Michigan coastline.
