For Rookies and Veterans alike, the Florida Powerboat Club’s Miami Boat Show Poker Run never fails to bring down the house.
More than 70 performance boats participated in the Florida Powerboat Club’s 21st Miami Boat Show Poker Run, which started in Coconut Grove at Grove Harbour Marina and ended in Islamorada at the pleasant Postcard Inn Beach Resort.
Sitting behind the desk in his office for the first time in three weeks, Stu Jones of the Florida Powerboat Club exhaled deeply. Between the 2016 Miami International Boat Show, which included the club’s annual Friday night party—at a new venue this year—and the 21st annual poker run that followed it, the Pompano, Fla.-based club’s founder and president had been running flat out since early January. Now, at least until the editor of Powerboating In Paradise, the FPC’s magazine, tracked him down to review photos for the upcoming issue, he had a few minutes to reflect on the run.
