Attention Florida Residents and Neighbors

I am interested in setting up a meeting of the FL TA members and wanting some thoughts as to venue and what if any interest there is for such an event. Please let me know if you are interested and would attend such an even. Plus any ideas for fun and games, prizes, and the such. If this happens possibility would become an annual thing.

One of many thoughts I have is a Hog(s) Roast/BBQ. A day or week end of fun and fellowship.

What say you??????

Well I see this is going no where fast well I thought it was a good idea guess not. Not all of them can be. I guess I will just be making a smoked pork roast for me and the wifey.

I'm game if it's not too far of a drive, Florida is just too darn long. Heck my county is @114 miles long alone. I was just in West Palm Beach today and forgot how long of a drive it was.

The Key's is a crazy drive. Once I was in Miami and thought..almost there.

I am in New Smyrna and could see driving an hour.

TBD once there is enough interest and then open for suggestion. Would try for something kinda central for everyone.

Sounds like a fine idea. I'm in DFW now, but originally from Tampa, and still visit family there. I'd make a 'detour' if it works out.

With enough notice I could make a Saturday afternoon/evening work out. Drive up Saturday morning have a good time, get a cheap room, drive back Sunday.

Put together something in NW Fla, say Tallahassee or west of there, and would probably get a lot of Ga and Alabama members too. Go with anything in N Fla and you would pull in Alabama, Ga and SC in addition to Fla. Depends on how far someone is willing to drive - NOT fly. Make it a 3 day weekend, too.

In a few days or so I will compile all suggestions make a list and all who are considering coming can vote on them and we will go from there. If we can generate enough interest we may get some vendor's or companies to donate some prizes for the fun and games or even possibly the venue.

I'm about 45 miles north of Tampa. Sure I would be interested.

I belong to a Sportsman's Club that might let us host the event. Perhaps we can even shoot bowling pins, steel, or something like that. Let me know if you are interested, and I will run it by the mucky-mucks.

I would be willing to join in on this depending on when it is and where? I live in Northeast Florida. So for me the drives get a bit long. Miami 7 hours, Tampa 4 hours, Daytona 1 1/2 hours, Orlando 3 hours depending on traffic, Key West 11 hours, Tallahassee 3 Hours, Eglin AFB 4 1/2 hours, .......... you get the idea. If you get enough people, I'll make the drive.
