Florida riders Meet and Greet

UPDATE IN SEPARATE POST BELOW


All Florida riders and their spouses/friends (along with anyone else who happens to be close enough to make it) are welcome to join us for the "2nd. Annual Florida Road Glide Gathering" which will be held on Sat/Sun., Oct 26/27. Hotel yet to be determined, still negotiating room block and price - check back here next week, but it will be middle of the state somewhere around Avon - Sebring. (Check post below for details)

The plan is for folks to arrive at the hotel anytime on Friday, or Saturday morning by 10-ish. Once you're checked into the hotel we'll head out late Sat. a.m. for lunch and an afternoon ride. Back to the hotel late afternoon, in time for freshening up and heading to a group dinner nearby. Them back to the hotel for "kick stands down, the beer flows around". We'll hang out and get to know each other, and check out the bikes. Sunday will be a planned ride and breakfast and everyone will head for home by early afternoon.

Check back here next week for hotel location and reservation details. And just give me a shout on this thread if you are planning to attend so I'll know who to expect.

Hope to see most of the Florida riders there. Come and get to meet your fellow Florida RG riders.

Oct. 26, Florida Meet and Greet Update:

Hi, sorry it's taken me this long to post final plans, but I was out of commission for 8-9 days, with the last three of those spent in the hospital. Everything is fine now

We will base ourselves out of the Holiday Inn Express in Sebring for a night or two starting on Friday the 25th for anyone who wants to do some exploring on the way to Sebring and wants to arrive Friday. The actual "Meet and Greet" starts around 10:00 Saturday a.m. We'll gather at the Holiday parking lot and take a ride to a lunch destination, then ride a bit more and get back to the hotel around 4:00 - 5:00. Time to relax and freshen up before we head out to a group dinner around 6:30 Back to the hotel it's kickstands down and beer bottles opened.

Because of the days I lost while I was sick, it's too late to do a room block now. However there are plenty of rooms available for both of the nights in question. If you book through the hotel the rate is $99. plus tax, just request the Road Glide Gathering rate. If you go through one of the rooming consolidators (Travelocity, Hotel.com, etc.) you can likely find a rate of $87.

That's it for right now. Please book your room and just shoot me a PM to let me know you're coming. It's only 3 weeks away.

Sandy was supposed to work until 6:30 on Friday but was able to swap her hours with one of her fellow workers, so we should be there late afternoon, in plenty of time to check in and get together with anyone who wants to have dinner together Friday evening. See you then.
