Boyne Thunder Poker Run Announces 2020 Cancellation

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 17 th 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.
