Check out this recent feature about FPC Winter Poker Run as published in the 22nd issue of Speed on the Water Magazine!
With the goal of giving its northern members a great escape from the often-dreary mid-winter blues, the Florida Powerboat Club’s Winter Poker Run is a tradition celebrated by many club members. This year’s run in late January took participants from Coconut Grove to Hawks Cay Resort & Marina in Duck Key. The “new” destination for the club—FPC utilized the venue for many years before taking a few years off from the resort as it was being renovated—was a perfect fit as Hawks Cay Resort has completely rebuilt docks and a new waterfront restaurant overlooking the vibrant marina. The luxurious two-story villas with up to three bedrooms and spacious verandas were a big hit as were the on-property amenities, which include a first-class spa, adult swimming pool, sandy salt water lagoon, free use of recreational watercraft and a live dolphin pond. All in all, the 210-mile roundtrip poker run was a success.
