Hey everyone I was wondering when the last Florida Meet was and if anyone else was interested in trying to get everyone together. I'm in Central, but travel up towards Jax a lot of the time, so I'd be up for a little drive. Just seeing who's out there!

I'm in the Orlando area (metrowest). I'm interested in getting some kind of meet n greet going here...

If you Florida guys are interested,

Sarasota Cars and Coffee meets the first Saturday of every month. 8am-10am.

December 3rd they are doing a 65 mile drive through the area if you are interested in having a bit of fun and checking out some cool cars!

Bring a toy for Toys for Tots, and you're good to go!

So a 2004-05 V was spotted by a friend of mine today in the Altamonte Springs / casselberry area on 436 pulling into the starbucks @7:30pm-ish. It was a silver one with "LS6" on the back. Anyone want to claim ownership?

So I'd like to gauge interest in different places we could meet up at. Lets start throwing out suggestions. I wouldn't mind doing a lunch at Wing House or Ale House followed by a cruise to a Park for pictures of the cars. I'm available Saturdays and Sundays. What's everyone's suggestions and availability?

down for wing house, or ale house. I'm over on east side of Orlando near avalon/waterford, but am def up for a drive. Generally work sat and sundays but with a few days notice can take care of that too. :)

Very cool, we got three people on board for the Wing House. Anyone oppose a meetup at Wing House?

In your replies, include these:
-your availability
-your suggestion for a meet/greet/food spot + photo spot

So far it's looking like Wing House for meet/greet. Anyone have suggestion for a Park to take pictures of the group + cars?

anyone know where moss park is? Its in lake nona about five minutes from the airport off either 528 or 417. think it is like a $4.00 entry charge, but we could cook out and take pics and everything there.

That looks like a pretty nice place for taking pictures and hanging out. We could probably skip the restaurant and just grill at the park.. make a day of it. Although it would be nice to meet up at a common location prior to heading to the park to do a cruise there together (caravan). - that could be anywhere really..


Here's the website for the park:

A Saturday or Sunday afternoon is probably best, either is ok with me given notice.

Hm... what about Blanchard park off of Dean road? It's more central to everyone, easy to find, and free. When you enter the park, there's a pavilion to the left with parking for up to 25 cars in front of it. The pavilion can be seen from Dean road so it will be easy for people to know where everyone is at when they enter the park.

http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p26/stealth418/blanch-park.jpg

EDIT: Actually it would probably make more sense to do a meet and greet at the park between 10 am and 1pm, then head out to Wing House together. (rather than vice versa as I originally posted)

Addresses:

Winghouse of Winter Park
227 South Semoran Boulevard, Winter Park, FL

Blanchard Park
2451 N Dean Road, Orlando, FL

That works for me... probably need to call and see if the pavilion is rented or reserved for whenever we're going to meet up. When are you thinking, a few weeks out on a Saturday like Dec 3rd or 10th?

I'm down for blanchard park. I go to the Ymca there and never knew there were basketball courts to the left of dean rd.. lol Also good with December 3 or 10th. but i know there is a 65 mile drive going on on the 3rd so we might lose some interest if we do it the same day.. just a thought

.:stealth:.
11-20-11, 10:06 PM
Cool, so the 10th is probably a better idea? I'll call the park tomorrow to see if we can get that pavilion reserved, if it's not already.

It looks like that particular pavilion is 'first come, first serve' only. Think we can wing it and show up around 10am and hope no one snags it? :)

Lots of joggers go to blanchard, and with the park opening around 8am, it wouldn't surprise me if it were difficult to lock up a whole area. If the intent is solely for a photo session, choosing a more out of the way location (e.g.: moss park) is probably a safer move, as I'd expect you'd want to move cars around, get good angles, lighting, setup, etc. You could always do photos at wing house as well.

Regardless of location, count me in :-)

Any updates on where/when to meet?

I know a number of other cars will be heading to the cars and cafe event held by the orlando automotive club. Dec 17th at the route 46 entertainment district in sanford. Should be plenty of ferraris, porches, vipers, vettes, audis, etc. They normally collect canned goods, and for December, they also collect toys for toys for tots and have the marines on-site normally with a nice military vehicle.

It might be nice to show up with a contingent of cadillacs ;-)

I'll be on vacation all week prior to the 17th, so that gives me time to pretty up the caddy, so I'm good with heading to the orlando automotive club meet on the 17th. J_son has a good point, we should meet up somewhere prior to that meet and roll in together. That would be awesome. It would be a preliminary V meet/greet and then caravan/cruise to a major meet. That would be little more fun I think.

Well hell lets meet up at Wing House then head to orlando automotive club meet. We gotta eventually agree on something. :banana: <- I've been trying to find a reason to use that banana...

Route 46 Entertainment District, 4316 W. State Road 46, Sanford, FL 32773

cars n cafe is from 9am-noon, so it may be better to meet up nearby, roll in together, then depart and head to wing house afterwards?

There's a logan's roadhouse that's half a block away, guessing their parking lot might be empty around 9 if we wanted to meet there at 930am?

ps- Would love to make it to wing house afterwards, but the wife made plans for us, so I'll be at the show and will have to duck out before everyone leaves for wings. I definitely think we should keep working to try and get more folks together in the future if they can't make it to this date. I'm looking forward to the south florida event that's being put together, even if it's a little bit of a drive.
