18 years in the making and the Desert Storm 2016 Poker Run is the largest gathering of powerboaters and enthusiast fans on the West Coast to date.
As always, this great event begins with the parade through the channel and under the bridge followed by wide open throttles to the first card stop at Havasu Springs sponsored by Wozencraft Insurance and then onto the rest including Steamboat Cove and Thompson Bay set up by Swoop Motorsports. After finishing up at the card stops everyone hit the throttles and bombed around the lake having a total blast before ending up at Pirates Cove for lunch and a few drinks.
Havasu is always a success with hundreds of registered boats and hundreds more just hanging around for the fun.
We’re extremely pleased to see the repeated success of this event every year and we always look forward to April for what is really the first big powerboating event of the year!
