Default 2008 FKKA "April Fools Kite Poker Run"

“April Fools KiteRiders Run”

On March 29 or 30th (depending on wind speed/direction) the Keys KiteRiders in conjunction with The Otherside Boardsports will be hosting a downwind Poker Run. If the winds are easterly (15 knots +) riders upon registering will draw their first card and launch near MM 92 in Tavernier. They will sail downwind for approximately 20 miles with 3 stops along the way (TBA). The stops are actually going to be strategically placed boats set up according to wind speed and direction. Riders will be assigned a number and will notify station boats then they will receive their next card. Final destination, also, TBA “Best Hand Wins!” The party will follow with prizes, raffle and cookout and open jam, (bring your instruments). Registration is $40, with additional hands available for $10. Proceeds will be for prizes, (more riders, more prizes, more money!), charity and the party. Pre-registration is not required, but contact The Otherside for details (305) 853-9728 so we can calculate the number of entrees. A liability/waiver must be signed at registration and if under 18yo a parents signature is required.
Remember, this is not a competition or race. It’s a downwind fun run with chances to win cash and prizes. It’s strongly encouraged to ride orderly (hotdogging near launch/landing zone, around or over station boats will not be permitted).
Further details will be posted shortly. Also, car-pooling will essential and volunteers are encouraged. A schedule of events are soon to follow. Stay tuned for more!
