THE EMERALD COAST POKER RUN IS ONLY THREE WEEKS AWAY! The 22nd Annual Emerald Coast Poker Run is shaping up to be a great event. Stu Jones from the Florida Powerboat Club reports early registration is up and the Emerald Grande is sold out. The better news is many rooms are still available at alternate locations and they have a new property onboard with great rooms rates and docks on property.

Many heavy hitters are already registered and the fleet of boats looks to be very impressive. This is a really great event for smaller boats due to the fact that all the running and card stops are located within the bay waters. The fleet is usually large and spread out very well as the event covers such a vast area and this naturally spreads the fleet of boats out all over the Destin Fort Walton beach area.

Stu told us he has assembled the largest and most direct coverage for the safely management plan than any other event. Working directly with five local jurisdictions and combined with Florida Fish and Wildlife and the U S Coast Guard provides seven agencies providing law enforcement coverage and first responder assets over the entire course.

Stu said “The torrential rains that have beat down on this area in the two previous years before this event are not occurring and the waters are what we normally expect from this area, beautiful emerald coast.” I did ask Stu for a personal guarantee that it would not rain this year and he told me absolutely zero chance of it. So with all my trust in Stu’s forecast you can count on Power Boat Nation to be back at Emerald Coast bringing you all the life and excitement of this spectacular run.

If you haven’t yet registered you can go on one to or call the club directly at 954.545.1414 as room and dock availability changes occur often. The Club office is open Monday-Thursday 10 am – 5 pm.

We look forward to seeing all the PBN Supporters at Emerald Coast!
