    4th ANNUAL BOAT WEEK August 12 – 20, 2006 and
    14th ANNUAL POKER RUN August 19, 2006

    FORT WALTON BEACH, FL, June 1, 2006 – The Emerald Coast Foundation (ECF)
    announces its upcoming calendar of events for the 4th Annual Boat Week and the 14th Annual
    Emerald Coast Poker Run, sponsored in part by the Emerald Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau,
    Inc. The Grand Prize for this year’s Poker Run is a 2006 Convertible Mustang V-6 made possible
    by Gary Smith Ford.

    Boat Week is a weeklong celebration of boating, with the highlight event being the Emerald
    Coast Poker Run. The activities were designed for participation and enjoyment of our local
    community and all our area visitors!

    Saturday Aug 19 – “THE BIG ONE” Poker run –10 Stops from Pensacola to Bluewater Bay
    Sunday Aug. 20 – Smoke on the Water at Marler Park
    Event times and dates subject to change.

    The Emerald Coast Poker Run, the largest poker run in the United States, is ECF’s flagship
    event and ECF’s primary fundraiser. The Emerald Coast Poker Run has been voted “the best Poker
    Run in the United States” by Power Boat Magazine for two years in a row (April 2004/2005
    Issues). The event brings together locals as well as recreational boaters from all over the country to
    boat across Northwest Florida’s emerald green waters. The day begins with breakfast; mid-morning
    through afternoon is spent boating to our 10 poker run stops. Each stop offers a festival event and
    spectators are encouraged to stop by one of the stops to enjoy the greatest spectacle in power
    boating in the United States. The Poker Run finale happens at the Emerald Coast Conference
    Center on Okaloosa Island with a large, casino-like party held in the evening.

    Whether you have a boat or not, Boat Week and the Poker Run will give you an up close
    and personal look at boats of all types and various boating activities.
