Would like to know if any interest in a West FL Gathering of the V's? (Tampa Bay area in general - but all invited!!) Could meet at any one of several watering holes or POI. (Eg: The Suncoast Offshore Races - july 4, or Mel's Dinner in Bradenton for a show and go. The "go" at Desoto Dragstrip in Bradenton.) Open to suggestions and dates. Could also just meet at Hooters - swap lies and drink beverage of choice:thumbsup: Inquiring minds want to know!!:bouncy:

I'm always up for meeting up with some of you guys for a beer or six. Pick a place and time and I'm there (if you're open to suggestions, the wife is out of town until next Monday, so the 8th, 9th or 10th would be great!)

i think the point here is to try and get us northern guys together. All the V meets have been down south so far...your not going to make us drive 6 hours for ever V meet are you? Plus the weather down there sucks ass for racing all the time. Humid wet stink going into my motor.

I think that the problem is that none of the Northern FL guys ever take the initiative to try and organize a meet like Lonestranger is. If someone takes the effort to organize something, the least we can do in return is have the event close to them.

Perhaps they're doing it on purpose for "one" reason or not?:thumbsup:

In the spirit of compromise:rolleyes: we could always meet in Orlando at Race Rock Cafe. Thats relatively convenient for both North and South, East and West!! I don't know what else we could do there but eat, drink (our favorite beverages - remember):bouncy: and swap lies about our dyno numbers or how many Vipers we have whooped!!:stirpot: Of course it we pick the right Saturday, we can go down to Old Town in Kissimmee and join the big parade, don't ya know?? I just think it woud be fun to get together and to know how strange each of us actually looks!:eek: What ya think??

Just to let you know there is a meet planned in New Tampa by Tampa Palms on July 21. There is a thread in the meet section if any of yous want to venture out of the V section. :)
We just had one in Hudson, Fl at a beach bar on the water. Good times.

The love bugs have been bad this year on the west coast of Fl. My Lade only goes out on the weekends. I have a second vehicle to take the abuse. Hopefully you V guys do the same.

Biggest problem in having a joint meet with the Escalade group is whether to bring my V, or the wife's Lade - don't ya know:bigroll:

So with no real progress made yet, I'll go ahead and throw out a firm plan:

Orlando Airport Hooters. It's in the middle, and close to all the major highways, so no real navigational skills required to find it. Here's a map:

http://hooters.know-where.com/hooters/cgi/site?site=299&address=&design=default&lang=en&mapid=US

Sunday, June 10th at 2:00 we meet up- beer, lies and boobies ensue. Then we caravan over to Downtown Orlando and impress everyone who happens to see us on the way to Rocky's Replay, whereupon I will kick everyone's ass at a variety of arcade games.

Savvy?

Okay Florida people- We've moved to a more central location so it's fair to everyone, so let's step up and confirm that you're coming.

Nikon seems cool and all, but two dudes meeting up alone does not look too good. Let's get 10 or 12 people coming- where's everybody at?

Urb or Heavy- Can you please change the title of this thread to Central Florida meet up to perhaps get more views from people thinking it's still on the west coast?

Thanks.

Cool. The wife's out of town with my Son until Monday, so any chance I get to take the V out on the road is great.

I will have my son and wife with me. We travel together as a family on all small road trips. I hope some other owners are bringing their spouses.

I feel like a heel, after starting all the discussion, but I can't get over to Orlando this weekend due to business commitments:eek: I will still try to make the "Lade" event later in the month. I had planned on trying for a July event don't ya know?:rolleyes: Sorry, as I am looking forward to putting some faces with the names on the Forum:bouncy:

Hm..didn't get an email from you.

I play Golf with the Owner of my company every Sunday until about Noon, and I'm way up in Leesburg. If you wanted to get a drink or something tonight that'd be good, as I don't think I can get there in time for lunch tomorrow.

Im pissed that it didn't work out this time. The reason why you didn't hear from me is we had to leave ealy morning today. I tore a liggament in my leg last week and have been not well since. When I woke up this morning I couldn't even move. I knew you were on the golf coarse and didn't want to bother you on the coarse. We got home and I took my meds and well I just got up now at 8pm. I hate sleeping during the day but couldn't take the pain. The meds I have really knock me out. We do need to plan a meet. I say lets get together at the hooters in clearwater. Who wants to out it togehter?

I figured something came up. It's cool, because I was bushed after getting beat down by the sun for 3 hours. Went home, took a nap, then went to see the family over in Orlando (Some kid in a Civic Si tried to race me at a light too- Ha!)

We'll set something up with a few more people soon.
