Poker Runs America Descends on the Soo
The Sault Ste. Marie waterfront sees some serious speed at the first annual President's Cup Poker Run
Imagination was key. As a Northern Ontario city, Sault Ste Marie looks a whole lot different in the middle of winter than it does in the peak of summer. But Poker Runs America had imagination, and Ian McMillian and his team had a mission to host a poker run in their city. They pulled it off in spectacular style.
Welcome to Sault Ste. Marie
We arrived in the Soo, as the city is affectionately known, just before dinner on Friday. The festivities were already in full swing. Poker run participants were enjoying a welcome reception at the Delta Hotel, which was a perfect choice to host the event. It’s located right on the waterfront and close to the Roberta Bondar Marina, where the participating offshore racing boats were moored.
