We have a tentative date for the 2011 Poker Run.

I say tentative because I don't have the permit in my hands yet.

We had a long meeting with water patrol to address their and our concerns, and the date we came up with was June 24-25. They want us to have the run on Friday June 24th instead of saturday to try to keep other boat traffic to a minimum.

If for some reason they don't give us the permit,then we won't have an poker run anyway, so if you're trying to plan vacations, then make sure you're at the lake on the 23rd for registration.

Awesome! I'm a fan of Friday runs. They are safer, the stops are less crowded, and it's a great excuse for a long weekend!

Some friends and I followed the boats around at Capt. Rons and Bare Bottoms and were just in awe of the machinery. It was just really cool to see that many go-fast boats in one place. Hope everything goes well for the 2011 version as I am already looking forward to it. June 24th is a Friday and now I have a great excuse for a 3 or 4 days weekend at LOTO. Good luck guys.

In the past it has been shady gators to bear bottom 7mm - 38mm and then back. We just got permit so we haven't talked to any bars yet, but I'd imagine it will be something similar.

Good deal, as soon as they announce the stops, we will see about finding a place to stay. We can figure it out at the next boaters party, the 12th I think?

Count us in. We had a couple military guys ride with us this past year. Both have down a few tours in Iraq and Afganistan. They were told to report to LOTO for boat duty. They thought it was for cleaning boats or something. It was their first time at LOTO and first time poker run. They kept looking at all the ladies and saying it would be easy to get in trouble down here.

Jeff,Ed,

Talking to us is done, we are in. Our staff at BBR looks forward to this event as one of the top 3 "single" events we have thru the summer. As part of our regularly scheduled events we will be having fireworks displays every Saturday night if that fits into the plans, for you all.

We had pontoons and cruisers in the poker run last year. Most of us run about 45mph all day. Your boat would be fine in the poker run.

Just sign up on-line we can get you up to speed in the am, this isn't the desired method. We can make it work for you.

Working with H. Toad for rooms. Start looks like it will be Lazy Gators and the end Shorty Pants. Vinson Mortgage is the first major sponsor to sign with us. [smilie=appl] Thank you Shawn and Jim.

It's going to be an awesome event!

I've been talking to Joe at Dick's 1/2 Way Inn, looks like we may head all the way to the 47.5mm this year. :twisted:

You are very welcome Eddie... Shawn knew last year he was going to Support the Troops again in 2011. Shawn loves the cause as well as how Midwestboatparty handles the run. You guys have done nothing but a great job and Vinson Mortgage Group is proud to be a big part of it. See you soon my friend.
