You may be well aware that the month of June is a busy one for performance boat events. From the first weekend’s Jacksonville River Rally Poker Run in Florida and the inaugural Erie Poker Run in Pennsylvania to the following weekend’s Alexandria Bay Hall of Fame Poker Run in New York hosted by Poker Runs America and The Chase Charity Powerboat Event in Muskegon, Mich., June is one of the busiest months of the year.
But it’s the third one—Father’s Day weekend—that is by far the busiest. In fact, I can’t recall seeing so many powerboat-dedicated events across the country in one weekend. Before the news was released (read the story) last week about the exclusive Cigarette Racing Team Owners’ Rendezvous hosted by Performance Boat Center on Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, I was aware of four major ones—the Atlantic City Powerboat Rally in New Jersey, the Hartwell Lake Poker Run in South Carolina, the Lake Cumberland Thunder Run in Kentucky and the Texas Outlaw Challenge in Texas—and there are probably more I don’t know about.
