Lost in the activity of producing the latest issue of Speed On The Water magazine, which went live last week and can be downloaded for free here, was a story recapping the seventh annual Lake Powell Challenge (Sept. 17-20) hosted by Antelope Point Marina in Page, Ariz.
And while it does appear that way, the coverage provided by Jimmy Biro from the event that raised more than $200,000 for JDRF was packaged as a fun, picturesque four-page feature in the new digital magazine. The story is filled with some great images from George Argyros’ unmistakable smile to the toilet papering of Brett Baur’s MTI.
The Lake Powell Challenge is about as picturesque as a poker run gets. Photos by Jimmy Biro (click images to enlarge).
Because of the pictures he provided, we realized we should at least share one of Biro’s photos as our Image of the Week. With several shots to choose from—we’d expect nothing less from the majestic Lake Powell, which marks part of the Arizona-Utah border—it was hard to pick just one. So we didn’t.
The shot above captures the scenery that sets Lake Powell apart from any other waterway in the country. It also features several stunning catamarans from DCB Performance Boats, which makes sense as the event has become a popular one amongst DCB customers.
The shot below showcases what Lake Powell is all about—houseboats, cruisers, tow boats, offshore catamarans, deck boats and more enjoying the lake altogether. While all boats were welcome and quite a few runabouts, deck boats and pontoons participated, there were several custom go-fast boats in attendance at Antelope Point Marina that stole the show.
Antelope Point Marina hosted nearly 70 boats for the seventh annual Lake Powell Challenge.
Sitting front row is Argyros’ 44-foot MTI and off to the left is George Ogden’s 29 Luxury Cat from E-Ticket Performance Boats that recently ran 146 mph at the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout. It just so happens that Ogden was featured in our Shootout coverage in the issue that went live last week, too.
