FUN, but GUARDED, be in the KNOW....

We totally agree that you should have fun at our events! However, we have some recommendations that we hope you choose to follow! At the end of the day we want all spectators, participants, staff and sponsors to go home to their families! Keep your guard up, always abide by the lake rules and laws. Keep an eye on everything around you!! The lake is crowded, so plan ahead and do not be in a rush. All launch ramps will have signs describing the event. The Storm Team recommend that all passengers in the vessel wear a CG approved PFD while under way.

SAFETY comes FIRST.....

The Poker Runs have grown over the years in both participant levels and spectators! We are not complaining, yet the question has become, how do we as event producers keep you all SAFE? This page was solely created to inform spectators of the BEST possible places to watch and partake in the event, while keeping a safe distance. Please read this page carefully for constant updates and details for the best view points, and as we call it SPECTATOR CENTRAL!
