I have already started to get responses, and it hasn't even been 24 hours yet. Not bad.

I'll give an update as to how many people are planning to come as we get closer.

I'll also give details on location and meeting time.
(Probably a nice County Park with plenty of shade.)

Looks like we are moving the Get Together to Saturday the 15th.
Apparently there are a lot of conflicting events on Sunday.

I'll post more as we get closer, But
A good location seems to Be Lettuce Lake Park in north Tampa.
It is right off of I-75, so it is easy to find and in a pretty good location no matter where you are coming from.

CANCELLED / POSTPONED

It looks like we are getting to many conflicts with other activities to get a good turnout.
I should have given people more notice, but it was a last minute idea to get something organized.

I’ll keep a list of people who responded (Thank you) and try again at a later date.

I'll be in orlando during the thanksgiving holidays. and probably st pete for the weekend. If there were a meet I'd be there but doubtful anyone else would during the holidays.

Right now I'm working with MangoStick to find out who may be interested in a get together.
If you have not already done so, feel free to send either of us an email

Unfortunately this weekend (10-15) isn't working for a lot of people because of a bunch of other events.
Also, Unfortunately, it is my only free weekend for 6 weeks.
It's car show/autocross season in Florida after all.

actualy, as much feedback as possible on when and where for everyone to meet up would be helpfull... there are a few of us in the tampa/st Pete areas but its not easy to organize everyone. I do realize that from now till about newyears will be chock full of events/family obligations and whatnot..but if we ARE going to pull this off then we need people to let us know how best we can come to some sort of compromis reguarding location and time/date. Mark and I are on to a good thing for fl owners...atleast I think so. Just as my "FURIOUSS" friend added...do feel free to make any suggestions/advice known. I really want to pull this off, it would be cool to get more of the somewhat scattered florida owners together and familiar with who's lurkin round the corner :wink:
where'd I put that damned hammer?? :-D

Count me in when you have a final date. Would really enjoy seeing other XR4TI's ... I think I must be the only one that owns and drives one up here in Citrus County.
