The Florida Powerboat Club is pushing forward despite severe conditions from the devastating hurricane Irma.
Many of the FPC’s partners from Miami to the keys are used to the severe tropical storms and hurricanes in the region, but Irma has made recovery harder than normal for waterfront operations and FPC partners everywhere.
After speaking with Stu Jones briefly, he said that the FPC is still planning on holding the Bimini Run on September 29, and expressed optimism that the event should still go smoothly as planned.
And looking past Bimini, we’re about 2 months out from the annual Key West Poker Run which should allow all parties involved to work through any challenges that may manifest as a result of Irma. So we are looking forward to seeing how this year’s run develops.
But most importantly Stu stated that the safety and livelihoods of club members and all those in Florida is paramount.
“We just hope that all of our friends and colleagues get back safely to their Florida Keys homes and and above all back to a normal lifestyle in the coming days.” – Stu Jones
