Another high-performance boat “storm” is rolling onto Lake Havasu when Monster Storm hits the London Bridge Resort from Oct. 11-14, 2018. Storm Poker Runs is organizing its 9th annual Monster Storm, formerly known as Monster Bash. The Halloween-themed Poker Run is teaming up with the popular online boating forum, River Dave’s Place (RDP), to simultaneously celebrate the 11th anniversary RDP Regatta.
Storm Poker Runs is reinventing Monster Storm to enhance spectator access to event activities, such as meeting industry icons like Bob Teague, owner of Teague Custom Marine, and Win Farnsworth, owner of the “Low Altitude” turbine 50-foot Mystic boat. Additionally, the public is invited to wear costumes to the awards and after-parties, both of which will be held at the London Bridge Resort (participants only at drivers’ meetings and Saturday dinner party). Spectators are also invited to shop the vendor and sponsor booths that will be on display at the London Bridge Resort throughout the weekend, as well as watch the Monster Storm and RDP Regatta participants raft-up for an aerial photo!
