How about a Florida meet and greet event???

Testing the waters to see if any Cracker SLK members (natives and transplants) are interested in a meet somewhere. Sound off, please.

Cool. I was thinking about a central location get together. Possibly Tampa or Orlando, unless somebody can pull a meet in Moroso or even Sebring.

hey if its during the 11th to the 28th of October I'd love to meet up with some FL members. I will be on holiday in FL (orlando) so will only have a hire car (hopefully not a dodge charger again!), but would be great to tag along to any meet.

Would be awesome. I don't know Orlando or Tampa (or any centrally located cities) well enough to plan it.

I vote for South Beach, or Las Olas. If not there a few other good places, Captiva, Orlando, Naples, Tampa, even Daytona.

I put the people who are on this thread onto a map here:

http://www.communitywalk.com/florida/map/811207

From just the people on this thread who are in Florida, it looks like Orlando will be the most centrally located. The only place I know of in O-Town that may be suitable for a meet and greet with lunch is the Mall at the Millennia, off I-4. Plenty of parking, lots of restaurants bordering the parking lot, plus an Aston Martin dealership, IIRC.

Sound off here if you're not on the map and wanna be!

I also found this pace in Orlando where they had a huge EVO meet so I'm guessing plenty of parking Proccolino's Pizzeria 4080 s Goldenrod rd Orlando 32822 for lunch. I can really only do it on a Sunday because I work 8-2 on Saturday unless it's dinner

or route 46 Entertainment district is a little out of Orlando but they have a Car and Coffee event every saturday. Maybe we could hit up one of those?
