At a mature 22 years of age, the Emerald Coast Poker Run delivered what could be summed up as the perfect Summer Season ender for about 1,000 attendees! In addition to the big colorful high-performance cats and v-bottoms that arrive from more than twenty states, an all-new local class was created to host smaller runabouts, cruisers and fishing boats….allowing for more participants to register and take part in this big charity event. With six days of Boat Week events that commenced with the Fat Tuesday “Poker Run Parade, and culminating with a big raftup party at the Landmark Crab Island on Sunday, it was a festive week that celebrated the Floirda boating lifestyle, and left about $ 150,000 on the poker table for local youth charities. Florida Powerboat Club and the benificiary Emerald Coast Foundation wish to thank the major sponsors, Emerald Coast TDC and IP Casino Biloxi, for their continued support, along with the hundreds of participants and volunteers that made this such a successful week for everyone involved! See hundreds of the photos on the FPC website and television coverage of this event begins on the Powerboating in Paradise TV Series on SunSports.
