The Mississippi River again served as the highway for this poker run. Over 35 boats and over 250 people participated. A unique outcome of the poker run was that all three poker hand winners were women.

Highlights of this year's poker run included: a 2007 600hp MerCruiser 2800 PlayCraft X-treme pontoon, owned by Gordy Rohde of Wausau, Wisc. This was a fully loaded rig that included all Livorsi racing gauges, SmartCraft View System, and custom Corian top wet bar.

Mike Ormstead traveled all the way from Battle Creek, Mich., to participate in the event. He brought his 28-foot PlayCraft X-treme with a pair 275hp Mercury Verado Motors. This was custom-built for kite flying.

Not to be outdone, Terry Kuchenberg, owner of Midwest Boats Sales and Repair, also added a little splash to the poker run by running his 2007 PlayCraft 2900 X-treme rigged with two 250hp Mercury Optimax Motors.
