Winnipesaukee Poker Run Set for August 27


The New Hampshire Boat Museum will host a Lake Winnipesaukee Poker Run on Saturday, August 27. Held rain or shine, the event will include everything from vintage wooden runabouts to high-tech fiberglass speedboats. This is not a race, and is intended for all interested boating enthusiasts who want to have a fun morning in support of the New Hampshire Boat Museum.

The morning will begin with a launch in Wolfeboro at the Town Docks at 9:00 a.m. Participants will make 5 stops on Lake Winnipesaukee following the lead boat in their boat group. At each stop on the lake, boats will receive a token that will later be redeemed for a poker hand.

After a fun morning of touring, everyone will head back to the Wolfetrap Bar & Grill for a catered lunch. There, participants will redeem their chips for their poker hand with the winning hands receiving New Hampshire Boat Museum Poker Run plaques for first, second and third place. As a fun addition to the event, superb aerial photos will be taken from a helicopter. These photos will be available for sale after the event as a wonderful reminder of this fun event.

For participants who register and pay by August 19, the cost to participate is $75 per boat, which allows for the captain and one passenger. The cost for each additional passenger is $30 per person. For those who register and pay after August 19, the cost is $100 per boat (includes captain and one passenger) with $35 for each additional passenger. Costs include the catered lunch at the Wolfetrap. Reservations and payments are required by August 19th to assist with lunch preparations.
