Baja To Help Cover Poker Runs America Event Entry Fees

Builder will co-pay owner registration fees at select runs.

June 26th 2007

Baja Marine has joined forces with Poker Runs America, a premier coordinator of performance boating events, to offer Baja owners an exclusive opportunity. At several upcoming Poker Runs America events, Baja will cover half of the entry fee for all Baja owners participating in these select poker runs. Poker Runs America has been organizing poker runs for nearly 20 years and currently hosts more than 100 events throughout the Unites States and Canada each year. Baja owners can enter the poker runs at New York’s Alexandria Bay, at the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino in Connecticut, and at the Sarasota Suncoast Poker Run in Florida, to take advantage of this offer.

“This partnership is an extension of Baja’s mission to provide products that our customers get to enjoy as fully and as often as possible,” said Dave Olsen, president of Baja Marine. “Poker Runs America organizes some of the safest, best-run and most entertaining poker run events in the world, and these kinds of events let our customers really take advantage of their boats’ capabilities. This sponsorship is our way of encouraging that process and of helping our customers have a great time with their boats.”

Baja owners can participate in three upcoming poker run events at a reduced cost. The Alexandria Bay Poker Run in Alexandria Bay, N.Y., is just four miles from the Thousand Islands Bridge, on one of the most beautiful waterways in the country. From June 22 to 23, entrants will compete for the unusually large $10,000 grand prize. For Baja’s customers, registration costs $325, half of the $650 entry fee non-owners pay.

On July 27 and 28, the luxurious Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino hosts the Connecticut/Long Island Poker Run in Saybrook, Conn. This event provides Baja customers their second opportunity to be a part of a poker run at a discounted price. This upscale run includes a welcome party at the casino, as well as an evening awards banquet and a reveal of the poker hands on Saturday night. Baja owners can participate for an entry fee of $375, half the standard $750 price.

The Sarasota Suncoast Poker Run wraps up the season on Oct. 5 and 6 in Sarasota, Fla. Winners in first, second and third place will receive cash prizes and a trophy to take home, and all participants will receive a plaque for participating. It costs $375 for a Baja owner to enter, half of the standard $750 entry fee.
