February 2016 was our first MTI Owners Fun Run through the Florida Keys. Everyone had a great time and the course allowed for some great ocean and bay running. The great success of last year’s event led us to immediately book more rooms and dockage for this year’s event.
Our departure will be from Miami on Thursday, February 23rd. We will run south through Biscayne Bay, stopping for a lunch along the way to our destination Faro Blanco Resort in Marathon, Florida Keys. Friday will be a day of R&R with a short lunch run, along with fueling of the boats. We have a Fuel Truck scheduled to provide fresh 93 octane gas to ensure our boats drink only the best. The marina offers 90 octane at the dock as well.
We will have a Friday night MTI dinner at the Faro Blanco. We will have a Saturday run to Key West and back to Faro Blanco before our run back to Miami on Sunday. Rooms and slips are reserved, but I only have a fixed number. Our room block expires on January 15th, so time is of the essence in making your commitment to join us.
Rooms and slips will be allocated via a list that I provide to the hotel and marina. Please send me (Tim) an email if you would like to attend. I’ll then add you to the list of MTI owners attending and the Hotel and Marina will then release a reservation to you. Rooms and slips are only released to those on the list that I provide to the Resort. I have actual Slips reserved for us, rather than having to raft all the boats off. The slip and room allocation will be handled on a first come , first served basis.
- Rooms are $289/Night, and slips are $3.50/ft/night
- I’ll send out confirmations and specific details to those that send me their RSVP email.
Yes, we will have a photographer along with us for the trip just as we did last year! We had the Faro Blanco to ourselves last year. However, that will not be the case this year. The Florida Powerboat Club has decided to relocate their Miami Boat Show Poker Run from the Postcard Inn, to the Faro Blanco…. Those that would like to participate in the poker run can certainly sign up and book via FPC.
