The Sixth Annual Smokin the Sound Poker Run was the very best ever. Why? A date change to move it downstream from Tickfaw and Havasu, making it a stand alone event from the races, and a huge $25K Prize purse all contributed to making this year an incredible year. The years to come will just get better and better and these are the reasons why.

This year Powerboat Nation was on hand to capture it all and we had a great time in and around Biloxi. Kort Ordered was the boat of the day as Kort and Jessicca Wittich were kind enough to host us aboard their incredible 36 Sunsation CCX.

The PBN crew aboard was a blast… I had so much fun doing this run and it was because of who I was privileged to hang with. From SUNBUNS, Steve Emmons , Mike and Angela Goldbaugh. The fun loving always a blast to be around AJ with Allison Lo Proto and enjoying the ride along with me handy engine builder Marc Boos from Precision Marine

The Golden Nugget Resort is a fabulous resort casino hosting the event and all of the card stops along the way were incredible. The long lunch stop at Base St. Louis gave all of us a chance to take in the the brand new marina complex along with some incredibly cool historic buildings that actually survived Katrina… and not much did.

The skinny run up to Orangutangs Daiquiris and Bar topped off the day.

A big thanks to all my Powerboating Friends that really show such strong support to PowerBoat Nation and all we are trying to do.

Great Time! See you all in Jacksonville:
