FPC is excited to return to Hawks Cay for the 2019 FPC Winter Poker Run! The hurricane repairs are going quite well.  It seemed to take forever to see progress in the beginning but it’s speeding along now.  We had a great partial opening last month and it’s been wonderful having guests back at the resort.  We are really excited for our summer opening as the property will look better than ever.
