The First Annual Not a Poker Run Boat Run

All going to the same place.

 

The Poker Run was cancelled after many years due to lack of volunteers.  It takes an afternoon of teams sitting on wharves, in hot conditions, registering those with the meager five dollar admission on the home wharf, handing out cards to those from five wharves, registering those, and all the other tasks in organizing events.

 

Boaters instead this year, went to the final bay instead of stopping at four wharves on the way. Saved a lot of gas come to think of it.

 

We were a smaller than usual crew this year and had a wonderful time. I did not want to leave as I would have to get out of the water.

I watched "The Shipping News" again last night...one of my favorite movies [and books]...and it also made me think of this Party you take us to each year, Mary.

Local culture is important for a healthy community, even if it involves abnormal beer consumption!

Great fun, none-the-less! Great shots and fun music, too!
It all looks good fun Mary.

It still sounds like fun Mary
YAY for a boat run of a different color, Mary. There's always more than one way to skin the cat! smile
Jolies vues avec le mouvement des vagues.

Too bad that is was cancelled, but it looks like you had a great time anyway. Love your pictures of the water and that little light house is wonderful.
Glad you still had a good time. Lack of volunteers for anything these days seems to be a problem.

Very wakey photographs.
It sounds as though you really enjoy this every year Mary, what a shame it didn't happen this year. That bottom picture is very good indeed.

I like all these pictures - I believe they are the first I have seen from the sea back to land, in the PEI area.

Shortage of volunteers? You just have to mail me a flying ticket...
Out on the water.......love it Mary........some great pictures smile
