Today, April 23, 2014, is the opening Day for the 16th Annual Desert Storm here in Lake Havasu.
Desert Storm has been named "One of the Top 5 Poker Runs in the Nation" by Performance Boats Magazine. Our town is buzzing with anticipation of this great event! These next 4 days will be packed with adrenaline pumping races, speed boats, and parties. This year I am participating in the Poker Run (with Dave Barker in the pilot seat), and we were lucky enough to be interviewed by Performance Boats... Here it is:
Running with the big boys at Desert Storm
The Desert Storm Poker Run, which is taking place this weekend on Arizona’s Lake Havasu, has become one of performance boating’s biggest events and for good reason. All the major manufacturers including Douglas Marine (Skater,) Marine Technologies Inc., Outerlimits, DCB Racing and more attend the week of activities including the street party and shootout, showing off their biggest and baddest equipment.
Bruce admits that the $450 entry fee is a definite stretch for the smaller boats and that he knows a number of guys who own boats in the 25’ to 30’ range who might enter an event like Desert Storm if the fees were less and it wasn’t such a showcase of the million-dollar 200-mph boats.
