Planning mini rally in Tampa - Orlando January 2017
« on: December 12, 2016, 04:23:12 PM »
    This would be our second annual Mini Rally lunch.  Last year it was held in Lakeland, and we are open to suggestions for where to hold this year's get together.  We have decided that we will hold it early to mid January, and probably somewhere along I 4 between Tampa and Orlando.
    Any Framily who are in the area are encouraged to join in to meet others who post on the forum.  Please let us know who and how many might attend so that we can have an idea of numbers to nail down a decent location.  Any suggestions as to location would also be appreciated.

The 2 of us will be there! We still regret missing last year's.  Not sure of the budget, but Sonny's is good, so is Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Outback, etc. All the chains are in Lakeland. For a non-chain we suggest Harry's Seafood Bar and Grill in downtown Lakeland. http://www.hookedonharrys.com. We really don't care about the restaurant as much as we are looking forward to meeting you all.

Good to hear from you guys. I like Sonny's too.  It won't happen till after the holidays so if you know of anyone whom may be interested in coming, please prod them along.

    It is a lunch get together, to meet other Framily members, so use what ever mode of transportation best suits you.  There may even be on or more who come on their motorcycles.

Are newcomers welcome at this mini rally?
Assuming that all goes according to plan, I'd love to be able to meet some friendly folk whilst in the first days of my RVing adventure!  :)

We had no choice. Didn't want to create a scene.   :o ;D :D ;)

Everyone is welcomed. The more the merrier. We'll be setting a date and location within a couple of weeks. When that happens, it will be helpful to let me know how many are coming so I can touch base with the restaurant.  Thanks.

We'll be in Kingsland, GA and then Ft Clinch State Park near Jacksonville for the last half of January, and then the Escapees Sumter Oaks RV Park near Bushnell for all of February and part of March before moving to Myakka River State Park near Sarasota for a couple of weeks before drifting back north going into April.

Bushnell is just north of Lakeland about 60 miles I would say.

Yes, that's about what it looked like to me. Definitely doable if the date works out. Go with what works for the majority of course.

Only if you leave you know what at home.   :o ::) ;D

The directions are, take Exit 32 off I-4. If you're coming from Orlando, take right at end of ramp. Go north on 98 about 1/4 mile.  Smokey Bones will be on right.

If you're coming from Tampa, take left at end of ramp and go under I-4. Go north on 98 about 1/4 mile. Smokey Bones will be on right.

If you could, please let me know if you intend to attend so I can give the restaurant a somewhat of a head count. Thanks.

If you know of anyone else wants to come, that's fine. They don't have to be RV'ers.   

Se you all on January 17th @ 12:00.
