Phantom Productions, LLC., is the newly named Event Production Team for the Desert Storm (Spring) and Monster Storm (Fall) Poker Runs. Both events held in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. "The BEST in the WEST" was tokened the name after decades of success. Jim Nichols Sr., the founder of Lake Racer LLC; Desert Storm, and Monster Bash, has sold the 2 events to Phantom Productions, LLC.. The owners James Nichols Jr. (Son of Jim Sr.) and ChristinA Crane will continue to carry on the family tradition of creating a fun filled, exciting poker run that brings boating families together. The events will continue to network and build up the marine industry! We will create amazing memories while doing what we all love-boating and giving back to local charities and the community of Havasu.


Lake Havasu, AZ is the home of both the MONSTER STORM and DESERT STORM POKER RUNS. Fun fact about Lake Havasu: The London Bridge crosses a narrow channel that leads from Lake Havasu (a segment of the Colorado River) to Thompson Bay (also on the river). It was bought for US $2.5 million from the City of London when the bridge was replaced in 1968. The bridge was disassembled, and the marked stones were shipped to Lake Havasu City and reassembled for another US $7 million. Since its inauguration on October 5, 1971, it has attracted thousands of visitors each year.
