The Boyne Thunder Poker Run planning committee, together with the Boyne City Main Street board, announce the cancellation of the 2020 event set to take place July 10 & 11, due to COVID-19 concerns.
Safety and security are the number one priority in the planning of the event. Due to concerns for the wellness of participants, spectators, the large crowds that gather to enjoy the event, and the Northern Michigan communities involved in the event, the decision was made to cancel.
“It is with a heavy heart that the 17th Annual Boyne Thunder Poker Run announces cancellation,” said Bob Alger, Committee Chair. “While it is our great pleasure to bring speed and excitement to Boyne City and Northern Michigan each July, the decision needed to be made to protect all involved and look forward to the 2021 event.”
Organizers hope that the boaters who have enjoyed Boyne City, Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan in past years can find a way to safely do so this summer.
The 2021 Boyne Thunder Poker Run will take place July 9 & 10.
