The Nichols family has been in the poker run business for 20+ years. Same great location in Lake Havasu, AZ. As we all know, the boating industry is a close family of boaters. The Desert Storm and Monster Storm Poker Runs are not going anywhere. The Poker Runs that were once small have grown to be large and everyone now wants in on the action! Why miss out on the fun?


Why Choose STORM Poker Runs?


​We recognize without participants the event is nothing. We are re-centering all activities around participants. The majority of all of the Poker Run activities will be at one venue. No need to drive all over town. We will have ONE host hotel! Book your room there, keep your boat there, party and eat there! ALL IN ONE PLACE!!!


​Without the help of our fine sponsors the event would not be possible. We have researched some more ways to help the sponsors gain more exposure from our events. We think they all would agree, that with the new marketing and advertisements in place it will be a HUGE benefit for them!! 


​Our commitment to water safety is very IMPORTANT. We intend to provide the best show possible. However, at the end of the day the show is nothing if there are injuries, incidents or accidents. We have several informative avenues to let the SPECTATORS know when and where to be for the best possible views, but to also  be in a safe position! 


​SAFETY is our #1 GOAL and one of our biggest commitments. Our Safety team is unlike any other. We staff the lake with over 20 safety boats. Most of which have been helping for several years. Their life experience along with boating experience provides our team with exceptional and credible experience. Our Safety Coordinator Dan Herron, is the ULTIMATE say for all things related to SAFETY. We are proud to have him part of the team!


Do you know how many people it takes to make an event like this happen? On average we have 150 staff and volunteers that make these events possible. Without them, this event wouldn't happen. Have you thought of the person that works countless nights to layout the street party? Or the staff that gets hardly any sleep to be sure you have a dock slip, or the right items in your event bag, or the safety team that is there for you when needed? Our staff go above and beyond for so little. They go out of their way to do their "part" to make the STORM POKER RUNS an unforgettable part of your summer vacations!



There is so much to do at our events.  The list can go on and on. If you simply want to volunteer your time, or boat, we have the perfect spot for you. At Krusin' For a Kause our generous Sponsors, Participants and Staff, help to make special needs children, and adult's,  dreams come true. Storm Poker Runs and partners take these clients on an epic speed boat ride on the lake, followed by a pool party. The Street Party draws thousands of spectators, manufacturers, and participants. The Poker Run reaches an average of 200 participants, with spectators patiently watching. The shootout is becoming more and more popular among the Participants and Spectators as well; people cant wait to see who the King and Queen of the SHOOTOUT is!


"BEST in the WEST":

This name wasn't given to us for no reason! Some would say that its because it is the only one of its kind on the West Coast, and that in itself is an accomplishment. However we are always changing and striving to be the best! We listen to our Participants, Sponsors and Spectators. We continually change and evolve to be the BEST evet we can!
