Performance Boat Club Events


Event Cancellations Due to Covid

Friends, members and supporters of PBCE,We hope this message finds you all safe and healthy during these trying times of Covid. I am sure that all of you are just as anxious to get out on the water, enjoy some boating and reconnect with friends as much as we are. We have been monitoring the status of reopening for various business and gatherings of 50+ people such as sporting events, fundraisers festivals etc. as it is the category in which the Performance Club Charity Poker Runs fall under.

The Ontario government was to release info on phase 2 and 3 of the reopening this week but so far only the guidelines have been defined with actions but no definitive dates for when the reopening of restaurants, sporting venues and larger public gatherings will happen. Until such time, under current orders we will not be permitted to organize and gather for our upcoming events nor would be able to have a meal or hold our auction and awards dinner.

At the time of this writing the Muskoka and Pembroke event scheduled for June 20th is cancelled. All other events have been placed on a tentative status pending the lifting of restrictions for public gatherings of 50 or more.

2020 PBCE Events

June 20 – Muskoka Lakes, Gravenhurst, ON – Cancelled

July 4 – Georgian Bay, Midland, ON – Tentative

July 25 – Ottawa River Run, Pembroke, ON – Cancelled ( Alternative may be Lake Ontario Fun Run)

Aug 22 – Lake Simcoe, Orillia, ON – Tentative

Sept 19 – Rice Lake , Bewdley, ON – Tentative

Oct 3rd – Kawartha Lakes, ON – Tentative

In the interim we have been in discussions with all the club directors, legal counsel and contacts within the provincial and municipal governments about what we may be able to do for get together as friends and fellow boaters and do some boating in such a way that we can still respect and be compliant with current orders in place regarding Covid restrictions. As things develop further we will continue to post updates on social media, our website and be making calls to our membership and supporters.

Some of the tentative options may be a fun run on Lake Simcoe, Georgian bay or Lake Ontario. If any member has any ideas or suggestions please feel free to share them with us by contacting our office at 705-533-2717 or email

We appreciate your patience, understanding and continued support and look forward to seeing you all on the water very soon!

All the best,

Captain Carl McBride
