Amid rain, wind, and a social distance backdrop, Poker Runners showed off their toys in Gananoque this weekend. The 1000 Islands Poker Run may have been uniquely challenging – aren’t they all? – but it offered the kinds of speed and flash all boating fans enjoy.

We’re excited to offer exclusive access to our photo gallery within. Like what you see? All images are available in high resolution for purchase. For $100.00, secure one digital, high resolution image of your choice from our collection. Or, choose four of your favourite digital images for just $149.99! Each image can be blown up to a 20×24 wall size. That’s not all – we can enlarge, print, and plaque your choices for an additional fee. Simply contact us at info@powerboating.com with your numbered selections. You may also contact us to purchase additional images not seen in our gallery.

Have a look at our photos within the gallery. You’ll see an exciting collection of events and memories from the August 28 weekend.
