Mid Florida mini rally Jan 25, 2018
« on: December 14, 2017, 06:45:24 AM »
     This is a heads up, we have tentatively picked 12:30 on January 16, 2018 at Smokey Bones in Lakeland for this our 3rd annual mini rally.  Please let us know who will attend so that we can let the restaurant know, we would love to see the numbers continue to grow so please come.  As stated this is the preferred but still tentative if it proves to be inconvenient .  Also, we felt the restaurant is conveniently located and did a good job last year, but we are open to an alternative location if anyone has a suggestion.

Will, that's why we are posting early, Wednesday doesn't work for Rene, but maybe Thursday.  We have lots of time to finalize a date.

Good to hear from you Will. Changing the date should will not be a problem.  We'll wait and see if anyone else chimes in with scheduling problems or if they are also flexible. Thanks.

     Rene, clean out some of your old PMs, I tried to respond but it is telling me that you box is full.  But in answer to your question, our conflict is on the 18th, so January 25th works for us.  How about other responders, including you Will, we would like to have Jane there, she has been at previous ones.
     In the absence of any negatives on Smokey Bones, I think that is the location, so we are making progress scheduling the event.

I have no idea where Tom finds the time to do all the things he does on/for the Forum.  Thank you for your assistance, wish you were close enough to join us.  It has been quite enjoyable the past 2 years, and is the only routine Forum get together on the east coast of late.

Thanks Tom.

If you're on I-4 heading West, take Exit 32. At end of ramp stay right for US 98 North. Go to the second set of red lights and take a right. Smokey Bones will be on your right.

Rene T---No, but Rusty is so big he counts as 1.5 cats.  This summer, when we got back from OR and CA, that trip made it his 15th time across the U.S.  We can't let him go on the bed in the back 'cause the front wheels will come off the ground.  It will be neat to see everyone again.

Tarzan is no competition. He weighs 17 pounds and not a bit of fat. Jane is at 16 pounds and she has some fat. Cleopatra is 12 pounds and lean.

Thanks.  As far as I know I will attend - I'll be the one on a motorcycle as that is my only form of travel outside
of the MH which is parked and probably not going to be driven till the end of March - unless plans change.  :o

RedandSilver, please take some pics for your Michigan brother and other unfortunates unable to attend.
It's great to put faces with names!
It seriously pains me that our coach that we have spent one night in is sitting in storage whilst we sit in freezing temps.
We must remain patient and live vicariously thru you.
Peace all.
