   Participants will also visit the infamous Kokomo’s Club which is situated right on the channel beneath the famous London Bridge. Kokomo’s has long been a staple for those PWC enthusiasts who make a pilgrimage to Lake Havasu City. This may be the first time some participants have been to Kokomo’s, however it surely will not be the last. As part of the pristine London Bridge Resort, Kokomo’s is the cream of Lake Havasu night life.

The final water stop will be a secret location which shall be revealed during sign in. This last stop will be hosted by the American Watercraft Association. The AWA is the exclusive PWC association fighting for your rights to continue operating your PWC. All participants must be AWA members. The entry fee comes with a $10 weekend membership or a $10.00 discount for existing members.

The poker run will conclude at the IJSBA World Finals. The final stop will be a visit to the World Finals itself which is admission free to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of IJSBA racing. Afterwards, the poker hands will be finalized during a PWC social. Food will served to the participants during a relaxed setting. The prizes will be awarded at approximately 4:30 allowing all participants enough time to enjoy the event and to return their PWC to their respective launch areas before sunset.

The IJSBA is excited to provide you this poker run and we hope that all of you will share this information with your friends so this event is a success and can be repeated next year.
