Ask around a bit and you’ll find that, generally speaking, poker run attendance is “off” this season. There are exceptions of course—the Florida Powerboat Club’s Miami Boat Show Poker Run in February saw its biggest fleet in years—and this season’s reportedly less-than-impressive overall attendance numbers do not spell gloom and doom for the poker run world. Poker runs are here to stay. But it is safe to say that the boat numbers for many of this year’s event, from Desert Storm to the Jacksonville River Rally, haven’t been as gaudy as those in years past.
A notable and impressive exception to this trend is the upcoming Buffalo Poker Run August 10-11.
