It might be a bit early but I need something to get me through tax season. Looking forward to this year's Desert Storm. Got so excited, I rented a place to stay a month ago lol.

This year's dates are April 20th - 24th.



Who else is going? Who is participating?

Wifey and I are deciding if we are going, sold my Howard last August so we would just hang out. Always enjoy the street fair.

I need to actually meet you in person. Been doing buisnes for a few years now🤣

Meet ya at the street fair??

Past couple of years we have been grabbing breakfast at Black Meadow and then hanging out on the point for the poker run. That could work too. 👍

Planning on being here. IT is one of my favorite events. I like to see the city come to life…

i don't like the thought of missing out, however not the same without a boat right now. I might make an appearance at the street party.

I will be there, making the trek from NorCal with two other couples. Reserved a VRBO down by the golf course.

This is our third attempt. Had a house reserved for 2020 and 2021, both cancelled due to the virus. Hoping the third time is the charm!

First timers.

We were just talking about it yesterday. Think we’re gonna be up river for kids spring break April 3-10. Then maybe do Thur - mon for DS 20-24. I’m interested to see if the lake is gonna be as big of a shit show as it was last year. Worst I’ve ever seen havasu. Hoping it was because people were still working from home, school was out and no kids sports still. Hopefully with those aspect back to somewhat normalcy, maybe it won’t be as crazy on the water.

We will be back again this year. Last years event was such a breath of fresh air after a year plus of lockdowns and masking in Commiefornia. This years event can only get even better!!

Haha does he wear tear offs?

If the desert storm party is anything like the eliminator party not worth it
Going to guess you weren't at the DS afterparty for Desert Storm...🤣 Didn't @RiverDave wind up on probation over it?? 😅

I don't think you could have found a case of coors light or white claw in the tri-state area that night anywhere 😂

@Ace in the Hole wasnt DS party at horizon last year?
I didn’t go to DS last year. It looked fun!
But I went to the eliminator regatta and I won’t be going this year that’s for sure.

There was a party/pontoon boat unveiling thing at horizon but the RDP/Desert Storm afterparty was at Chris's shop. Unreal amount of people, boom bandits, boats/display truck etc. Very well put together, from what I can remember we had a great time lol

Bummer on the eliminator deal

I don't think we are going to make it this year. My kid whose birthday we celebrate in Havasu every year because it always falls on Desert Storm, asked if he could have a birthday party with his friends this year. Probably end up going out for Spring Break when the kids are off school for 2 weeks.

Since 2006, I have only missed 4 DS. This will be number 5.
Daughter is on Spring Break and we are heading to Moab. Roll into Havasu the Sunday of DS to setup my Islander spot.
