Thanks to fellow Woody Boater and amazing photographer Kent O. Smith Jr for sending us in some amazing photos and story. The other great news is that Kent will also be at the big Clayton Show next week to report in. Take it away Kent!
Thanks Matt, The Adirondack Chapter held it’s first Poker Run on Great Sacandaga Lake on July 19th. The Run was organized by chapter members Adam and Jessica Retersdorf and sponsored by their business Reetsboatworks.com located near the lake in Mayfield, NY.
Boats gathered and launched at 10 AM. First stop was close by at Adam’s parents lakehouse where mimosa’s were served from the dock. Adam graciously offered the use of his 36’ Donzi center console as the official photo boat for the event. Photographer Kent Smith was onboard as well as lake local Anders Junger who brought a quadcopter drone to capture overhead stills and video. Anders runs From Above Media and kindly donated the shots to the chapter.
Other stops on the lake included the Lakeside Tavern, Sport Island Pub, I-Go-Inn and finally Lanzi’s on the lake where we gathered for lunch and to tally the results.
Roger & Maria Johnson on the 1934 Chris Craft “Recovery” had the best hand and won a gift certificate to the I-Go-Inn. A great time was had by all – even the kids – despite the lack of enthusiasm looks. HA
Enjoy the Poker run through photographs by Kent!
