The 2023 Pink Dinghy Poker Run will be held on July 8, 2023 and will be based out of the new port facility in Honey Harbour, adjacent to the Delawana Inn. Boaters and cottagers board their dinghies (jet boats, small tenders or PWCs work well too) for an afternoon trip around the Honey Harbour area of Georgian Bay – gathering cards from five different stops. Prizes are awarded for the top poker hands and a few fun surprises.

Registration opens at 10am, prizes for decorations and costumes will be announced at 11am with the mass start shortly thereafter. Participants will have to return to the port by 2pm to open their hands. We will have a charity barbecue, the Bounce/Pure Country tailgate team will be on hand, and our team will award prizes at 3pm.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s.

However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
