    Hello Poker Runners,
    The 2005 edition of the Ky. Lake Poker Run will be held Sat., July 9th, at the Ky. Dam State Park in Gilbertsville, Ky.
    The Drivers Meeting will be at the marina, starting at 9:30am, with the first group of boats taking the green flag at 10:00am and the second group leaving 5 minutes later.
    The Ky. Dam State Resort is the Host Hotel this year so book your rooms ASAP, and mention the Poker Run as they have rooms reserved for us. Tel# 800-325-0146 The marina has slips for us as well, if anyone needs one. Marina # 270-362-8386
    The Inn by the Lake in Gilbertsville ( 2 minute drive) has rooms for us, as does the Holiday Inn in Draffenville (10 minute drive) Inn by the Lake # 270-362-4278 Holiday Inn # 270-527-5300
    The evening's festivites will start with dinner at 6:00pm at the Ky. Dam Convention Center, with the opening of the cards, trophy presentation and party to follow. The Convention Center is a very nice "air conditioned" facility with plenty of room for dining and dancing. Our dinner will be a buffett style affair, with Hand Carved Prime Rib, Southern Fried Chicken, and Catfish as entrees along with Vegatables, Salad, and Dessert.
    This years Run will start with a 30 mile jaunt, due south to the Ken-Lake Marina and there we will all raft off, pass out the cards, have drawings for prizes, take pictures for several magazines and newspapers, and basically just have time to see old friends and make new ones!! Fuel is available at the marina.
    From here we are going to change up the basic Poker Run format and go with the format used by the Emerald Coast Poker Run in FL. and others. When you leave Ken-Lake, you will already have 2 Cards in your Hand. There will be a total of 5 more card stops available, so if you want to make the remaining 5 stops, you'll open 7 cards that night. If you want to make only 3 of the the remaining stops and hang out at the Rock Quarry the rest of the day, you will still have a 5 card hand to open that night. I hope I've explained it easily enough for everyone to understand, if not, we will go over it again in the Drivers Meeting. I'll offer a quick explanation; Last year I had several of the smaller boats not really "enjoying" running in the big boats wakes all day, and with the price of fuel the way it is, this should make it a little easier to handle. You'll receive a detailed map with your drivers packet showing all the stops. Two of the stops, The Moors Marina and Buzzard Rock Marina, have food and fuel available If you get hungry or thirsty!!!!!! Three pm is the card deadline. No cards will be given out after 3:00pm at any of the Stops!!!!!!
    OK I'm begging here. Please send in your entry forms as soon as possible so I can get a head count for the Chef to prepare enough food for everyone that evening and also to get the correct size T-Shirt you want. So, please, if you want to eat and you want a shirt, I need them in my hand at least 45 day's prior to the event.. You can pay the entry fee when you check in Fri. afternoon or Sat morning between 7:00am and 9:00am if you want, but please send in the entry form anyway!!!!!!!!!! ok enough said.
    Driver check-in will begin Fri afternoon(the 8th) at 1:00pm at the marina launch ramp area. I know several people are going to make a late afternoon run over to Buzzard Rock Marina for a little food and drink if you're interested. We will also have a Sat. morning check-in starting at 7:30am til 9:00am. That means ending at 9:00, not 9:05!!!!!
    Proceeds from our event will go to the Ky. National Guard, Military Police Support Group. I hope you feel like I do, that supporting the famlies of these brave men and women who are defending our freedom all over the world, is a VERY worthwhile cause!!
    You can log on to or for any Ky. Lake information, directions, and Poker Run updates!!!
    Thank you and we'll see you there!!!
    Mitch & Tracey

Boats will start parking on thursday, and some they won't leave till monday. It's the yearly event called Canal Day!!!! :supp: It is held in Chesapeake City harbor right out front of Cheapeake Inn, a awsome bar and grill with live bands all day long. There will be maybe 1000 people in the bar alone. I'll be there in my 1974 Sleekcraft jetboat raising heck. If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at DON'T FORGET YURE BEADS!!!!!!!

    2nd annual "Toys for Tots" run
    Oct 29th and 30th
    Unfortunately the cabins and campground are out this year, I will reserve my comments on that for a later date. Due to the late timing, the Hampton Inn is limited in availability, therefore our group will be split up in regards to sleeping arrangements. Here is what I have, any help is appreciated to further along....
    Hampton Inn
    9 rooms block reserved (2 queen size per room)
    Tell them you are with the BOTE group, $75 per night (best deal available for small qty of rooms left)....sorry. I have contacted the local Comfort Inn as well, slightly higher in price. There are also others in the area, but I have only blocked the 9 rooms at the Hampton thus far.
    Toys for Tots run (2nd annual)
    12 noon Oct 29th Linville access ramp (same as last year)
    I have contacted the local national guard, they will confirm with me next week to do the pick up (Marines). Bring one or more toys for the kids, especially during these times in the south when so many have lost so much.
    Local newspaper has been contacted and they have confirmed they will be there.
    I plan on arriving Friday the 28th around noon.....hope to meet some of you at 'Hot Boat Island' to finish out the day on the water.
    So lets get this party started, make it better than last year.
    Need to get a roll call started, food listing, arrival/departure time listing, etc..
    NC, SC, VA, WV, MD, PA, OH, TN, GA (and any others I havent listed)......come on everyone, lets finish out the year with a bang !!! We had 40 some boats last year, lets blow that number out......
