Not having missed a Desert Storm Poker Run in more years than he can immediately remember, high-performance powerboat insurance man Devin Wozencraft had a tough decision to make when he learned that the event would overlap with the 30th annual Tickfaw 200 Poker Run on the same May 4-7 dates this year. While Southern California-based Wozencraft Insurance Agency will still have its display at the Desert Storm Street Party on McCulloch Avenue in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., and its traditional card-stop presence during the poker run on the lake the following day, the company’s namesake has decided to run the Tickfaw 200, which reportedly attracted more than 340 registered boats last year, event in Louisiana in his 30-foot Wozencraft-branded Skater Powerboats catamaran.
For Wozencraft, this year’s 200-mile Tickfaw event will be his first.
“So many people have told me that I really need to check out Tickfaw and obviously I’ve heard about it for many years, so I’m going there this year,” he said. “I’m really excited about it.”
Wozencraft said his decision to attend Tickfaw was twofold. First and foremost, he wants to experience the event. (“I’ve heard the number of boats and the people at Tickfaw are unbelievable,” he said.) Second, he’s hoping to expand his insurance business by sharing the water with and getting to know performance-boat owners in Louisiana and the surrounding states.
“I’m going to miss being at Desert Storm this year, for sure, but I’m looking forward to experiencing Tickfaw for the first time,” he said. “But we will still be represented. Tanah Kinsey and rest of the Wozencraft team will be there.”
