On the weekend of Aug. 8-9, the Rochester Offshore Powerboat Association will host the 2014 Buffalo Poker Run, which kicks off at Templeton Landing in Buffalo, New York. Visit www.buffalopokerrun.com. You must register in advance, and as of late July the entries were well above 100, with crews from all over the Northeast planning the trek to the western side of New York. On the other side of the country, a week later, the Big Cat Poker Run takes place on the Delta in California. Check out www.bigcatpokerrun.com.
