......... that's not strictly true. When the weathers nice, boating's obviously great.

But it can also be a great laugh during your average British summers day too. The last lot of Poker Runs are testament to that.

Speaking of which, whatever happened to the DPC?

Agreed Chaos, totally.

My point is, these guys have fjords, flat water, swedes have the baltic, flat water!

We have the Solent. I'm not talking about people's commitment but would you risk that kind of organisation if the chosen day ended up blowing a hooley with big seas, ie a boating right off?

Again like most of the powerboating events in the UK, no one supported them.
The last 2 poker runs got canned because lack of commitment (poker runs GB and drivers) The last drivers one in 2011 had 7 entries and i dont know about poker runs gb entries.

I dont think we have enough hard core enthusiasts any more.
I tell you what, lets do an experiment. Everyone who would do an event reply to this. and PLEASE, if you have no intention then dont post.



Im in.

I totally agree, you know that I will be up for it. Would be great to have a poker run, and everyone could meet up in their boats.

100% with you guys, I am totally commited to meeting up, my only problem is that I will be in Sweden a lot this year so if I'm not there its because I'm abroad!

Otherwise count me in.
