    The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet

    Okay, so we're looking at doing a big meet in FL. I mean, sure, a get together is nice and all that, but we want to do some good stuff too.

    I'm thinking sometime in July is good (summer and such). We can do a fun cruise on the beach, get some food at an outdoor type place and maybe find a car show or something else to hit.

    So... questions:

    1. Where in FL? I was thinking the Broward/Palm Beach area, or a bit North.
    2. What's there to do in July? Anybody know of any events?
    3. Anyone interested in going to PBIR for an afternoon, if its open (actually, do they even do track days anymore)?
    4. Other suggestions?

    Send 'em here.

    My information on FL is 20 years out of date. I only remember it being quite flat and more humid than I thought April ought to be. I have complete faith in Roo and Matt to pull off a meet to remember.

    Flat, yes. I'm fairly certain that the largest hill in Florida is the St. Lucie County dump.

    Re: The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet

    YES!!! The ball is rolling now! Been looking around the internet for things to do in Palm Beach in July. Here is what I have found.

    The Palm Beach International Raceway has 1/4 Mile Test & Tunes every Wednesday and Friday. That sounds like it would be a BLAST. Especially for those of us who would like to find out how fast our cars can go...

    There a about a million beaches around that area, so a beach trip is a must. I think it would be cool. Swimming, fishing, cookout, all that kind of cool stuff.

    It is ONLY about 2 hours and 45 minutes from the Palm Beach area to Orlando. We could possibly do a day trip to Universal Studios.

    We are definitely open to suggestions. These are just some ideas. Please let us know what you guys want to do and when you are open in July!

    I have the second week in July off. As to what to do in FL, I haven't been there in over 20 years and have no idea what's there now. I'll have to rely on the natives to suss out the happening spots.

    Go, Matt and Roo!

    Re: The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet

    Eh, I'm not too fond of the main theme parks. Too crowded, and everyone gets separated and such.

    I'd be down for a Friday test and tune at PBIR. That'd be pretty interesting to see, and might even get some V-guys to attend (I loooove those cars )

    Beach trip, most definitely. I would suggest Sunday for that; Saturday beaches are crowded and annoying with children. Bleh.

    So we need a good activity for Friday afternoon, and all of Saturday. I'll scope around and see what we've got open.

    Re: The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet

    Sting sent word that an event is in the works! Make it a goodie!

    I have a condensed summer school program through July 22 so I'm trapped in the books until then.

    How about cocktails and dinner at someplace memorable and over the top?! The Mai Kai in Ft. Lauderdale comes to mind as a possibility for someplace we'll never forget. It's an original 1950's Tiki mecca where Cadillacs no doubt have graced the parking lot in great numbers for decades! Imagine if the place would consider sponsoring a special Cadillac Night Luau in the parking lot prior to our cocktail party and dinner? They could have a blurb on their sign inviting all Cadillac owners for a special Cadillac cocktail which could be created especially for us and perhaps we could include the Cadillac LaSalle Club for some extra flavor and fun cars to oogle at in addition to all the locals who toddle their way in with their own Cadillacs? Ahhhhh the possibilities!

    Craig, you're right, Florida is tropical after springtime starts so get ready! There are beaches and swimming pools plus the oceans are as refreshing and warm as bath water.

    Good luck!

    Dave

    Yes! Mai Kai for the WIN. I've only eaten there a handful of times, but it's good food and a really cool atmosphere.

    I see that as a definite win for the cruise night. Maybe cruise the Strip, then head to the Mai Kai.

    ^^^ Plus one for the Mai Kai! I love tropical-type stuff, and the fact that it's origional just makes it alllllllll the better. A lot full of old Cadillacs would be the coolest.

    Re: The Awesome Roo and Matt themed Florida Meet

    Okay, so here's the (semi) official day plan:

    Friday: PBIR trip, watch some cars, run some cars, etc. What the heck, it'll be cool! (Jayoldschool: your SS is calling )
    Saturday: TBD (Maybe some golf? I'll play terribly, but there's always the golf carts) SUGGESTIONS GO HERE
    Sunday: Sunset beach/strip cruise and evening at the Mai Kai for dinner.
    Monday: Farewells, etc. etc.

    Are there any car museums in the area?

    Racing?! I'm a Cadillac guy so you boys have fun with that. I'll meet y'all for cars and cocktails at the Mai Kai though.

    Bro-Ham, don't tell me you've never wanted to see how fast your SDV will go down the drag-strip! I'm sending my Brougham down it, at LEAST once, just to see what the old boat will do.

    Wagon's going!

    It'd be fun. Besides, you can watch us and you'll warm up to the idea.
