Raising approximately $10,000 for the Children’s Foundation of Muskoka, the Performance Boat Blub of Canada kicked off its 2016 charity poker run season last weekend on the Muskoka Lakes in Ontario, Canada. Glass-smooth water and immaculate skies greeted the 21 boats and their crews that participated in the event, according to club president Meghan Brousseau.
‘The Muskoka Lakes are always a favorite for our club,” said Brousseau. “The scenery is some of the prettiest in Canada, and it’s always fun for new members to go through the locks from one lake to the other. We have been very fortunate to enjoy amazing weather every year we come here. Our members also get a kick out of trying to spot celebrity cottages on the lakes.”
Sam Maye and company from Team Executioner had the best hand, with Matt Dean and his Total Kaos crew claiming second and Rob Hamilton from team Rock-Hit-ship taking third. The “Hard Luck Award” went to Ken Jensen and the Disturbing Behavior crew.

“And a big thank-you goes out to this run’s sponsors, Kevin Primmer from All Ontario recycling and Jeff Devolin from Birchpoint Marina,” said Brousseau.
The club’s next charity poker run is scheduled for July 9 on Georgian Bay. For more information visit the Performance Boat Club of Canada website.
