Quite the Community: Big Donation from Big Cat Poker Run

When it comes to community-focused events in the performance boat industry, there are some great ones out there. One that comes to mind is the Boyne Thunder Poker Run in Michigan where the town rolls out the red carpet, the event raises a good amount of money for charity and many of the attendees are local—well maybe not from Boyne City or Charlevoix exactly, but from all parts of Michigan. The Pirates of Lanier Family Poker Run is another one that stands out.

Ray Nuchereno Memorial Poker Run Pulls 63 Boats—And Heartstrings

A bittersweet event to be sure, yesterday’s inaugural Ray Nuchereno Memorial Poker Run—formerly the Buffalo Poker Run—in Western New York attracted 63 high-performance catamarans and V-bottoms, a dozen of which came from Canada. As reported previously on speedonthewater.com, the run, which was the Western New York Offshore Powerboat Association’s signature event for many years, was organized this year by Anthony Scioli of Elite Poker Runs LLC and renamed for Nuchereno, a respected member of the local go-fast boating community who died in June after a long struggle with cancer.
