Lake Havasu’s 17th Annual Desert Storm Poker Run & Shootout

One of Lake Havasu City’s biggest events kicks off this week! Named “One of the Top Five Poker Runs in the Nation” by Performance Boats Magazine, the 17th Annual Desert Storm Poker Run & Shootout is sure to be a great time for anyone.

Running from the heart of Lake Havasu (starting at Site Six off of the island) to Spectator Point, top speeds upwards of 160+ MPH are not uncommon here. 2014’s top speed — a whopping 170 MPH by Gary Smith! All performance boaters are invited to participate! The air will be buzzing with the racers’ helicopter teams flying above the boats right above the water.

Thursday April 23, 2015 kicks off The Desert Storm Street Party located in Lake Havasu’s Main Street (McCullough Blvd) is a site to see displaying many of the racing boats up and down the boulevard. You have to see these sports boats up close and personal, trust me you’ll be blown away by their size! Don’t miss out on the excitement Thursday! Last year’s turnout was over 10,000 people!

On Friday April 24, 2015 the boats will be participating on the water at the Desert Storm “Parade of Power” and Poker Run. Over 150 boats participated in last year’s event and more are expected for 2015! Drivers will be displaying their boats on parade from Thompson Bay and through the Bridgewater Channel. The best views will be along London Bridge Beach and along the Bridgewater Channel. More viewing locations include The Nautical Beachfront Resort, The English Village, and Rotary Beach. After the parade, the drivers will be taking off for the Poker Run, picking up cards at various card stops on the lake. Poker stops include Havasu Springs, Havasu Landing, Thompson Bay, Black Meadow Landing, and Crazy Horse Campground.

On Saturday April 25, 2015 starts the Desert Storm Shootout, where drivers run a two-mile course starting near the Site Six Launch Ramp south along the California side of the lake. 30 different classes will be competing with over 67 runs, and speeds upwards of 160+ mph! Best viewing for the Shootout will be on the surrounding bluffs on the Island near Site Six to Spectator Point.
