Orange Beach is designed as a three day event at low cost for racers and race fans. The goal is to fill every hotel and condo along the beach front.

Free racing for all racers and free concerts plus racing for fans.

Friday - Race 1 and then Bon Jovi Concert on the beach.
Sunday - Race 2 and Brad Paisley concert on the beach.

You get two free tickets with every hotel room. Or 6 free tickets with a 3 bed condo.

We'll have about 40 boats in Orange Beach between the OPA teams and the POPRA teams.

OK !!!
If the OPA World Championships along with 2 free concerts was not enough, here is a little more to add to the excitement !!!

PLEASURE ISLAND POKER RUN
Where Is It?
Orange Beach, Alabama
The Poker Run will take place on Saturday October 16th. That morning all stops open at 10:00 A.M.
Optional Distance Runs to the Oar House, Pensacola; Juana's Pagodas, Navarre; and Tacky Jacks, Ft. Morgan. Please view the Poker Run's web site www.thepleasureislandpokerrun.com for additional information regarding the schedule of events.
The poker run will conclude with a Poker Hand Party at Cobalt's beginning at 5:00 PM. More fun will be had with live entertainment, buffet, cash bar, and of course the play off for the best poker hand in which Poker Run participants can win up to $6000 in cash and prizes.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Thunder in the Gulf Race for Recovery efforts.
For More Information call John Johnson 251-229-1908 or email [email protected]

Greetings!

We wanted to show our support to the "Area Wide Campaign" to make it extremely clear to everyone out there that our waters are open, oil free, and safe for all to enjoy. Whether you enjoy boating, fishing, swimming or just soaking up the sun on our beautiful sugar white beaches, let's just get back to the business of having fun!

The festivities will begin with Registration and Welcome Captains' Party at 4:00pm on Friday at Cobalt's. The party will feature a cash bar, buffet, and live music.
Interested participants can also register for the run on Thursday 10/14 at Happy Harbor at 6 P.M., or late registration at Cobalt's between 8 A.M. and 10 A.M. on Saturday 10/16. The entry fee is $250 or $300 for late entry the day of the Run. And that includes the two concerts!

We hope you can join us!

Sincerely,

Dana Day

The Pleasure Island Poker Run
Event Manager
