Plenty of Booty at 2009 Seneca Lake Pirate Run

One of the nicest areas for powerboating is New York's Finger Lakes region, and a main highlight of any boating season is the Annual Seneca Lake Pirate Run. Seneca Lake, which is 40 miles long and the largest of the Finger Lakes, is known not only for its scenic beauty but for it's great recreational environment and many fine wineries.

This year's Pirate Run, sponsored by the Seneca Powerboat Association, is scheduled for June 19th-21st and promises to be another great event. Not only is there a big prize for the Best Poker Hand ($3000) but they also offer cash prizes for Best Pirate Costumes for both participants ($100) and spectators ($150) as well! Headquarters for the run will be the Showboat Motel, located in Himrod, NY - about 16 miles north of Watkins Glen, on the west side of the lake. Complete information and registration details are available on the group's website [see below] so don't delay...spots are filling up fast.
