Once again, the Florida Powerboat Club is busy getting ready for next month’s Key West Poker Run. And thanks to a special anniversary—this year’s Nov. 7-13 event will mark the club’s 25th year running to the United States’ southernmost point—and a big question mark regarding Key West’s readiness following Hurricane Irma, the excitement is building for what’s arguably the world’s best poker run.

Earlier today, Stu Jones, FPC’s founder and president, sent out an email to the club’s members hyping the 25th annual event, which included the news that longtime sponsor OffleaseOnly.com is returning as the Grand Prize sponsor.
“OffleaseOnly owners Mark and Eileen Fischer have been avid powerboaters with FPC for almost two decades, and for at least 10 years they have supported this signature poker run event with a grand prize Mustang or Camaro from their OffleaseOnly inventory,” Jones said. “Of course, we’re ecstatic to have them back this year.”
Like last year, Jones added, OffleaseOnly is spicing up the prize by converting the option to a $20,000 voucher toward the “Winners Choice,” allowing the winning poker run team to select any vehicle from OffleaseOnly’s 3,000-plus vehicle inventory.
