    Florida Gathering in October, Another Ditch Run?

    I am gauging interest in a weekend run in October. The dates I am looking at are the 18th-20th. I am also thinking of a run from WP Franklin, east to Lake Okochobee and staying two nights at Roland Martin's Marina and Resort.

    This would be a fresh water run of about 60 miles e/w and would allow us the option of playing out on the lake if weather permits.

    We have been to the resort for a lunch stop on our cross-Florida trips and it is clean, has plenty of boat parking, fuel, pool, and a great outside bar/restaurant. Smokediver and I have been discussing this for a couple of years and I think it is time to make it happen.

    Let me know of any interest?

    I'm in of course. Just no hell rides to lunch this time.

    If no interest in the lake I would like to do Lake Jackson in Sebring where it is crystal clear.

    Wish I could make it.

    We have a reactor scheduled to be shut down for refuel that I will be supporting. I am going to be stuck at work for the whole month of October.

    Not sure, as of now, John. I am supposed to be in San Diego that week. I am working on finding out if trip is on or not. I will get back to you.

    Also, John, the week before has a large fishing tournament there. The best weeks available would be the 18th-20th or the following weekend 25th-27th.

    I am not feeling the love Bob from both the sites and my wife. She wants to go someplace "fun". Many of you guys like the long run and making the most out of bringing your boat. Most of the women want to go for a boat ride(hour?) and then go for a swim in a nice natural spring or sit on a beach, etc. I understand both desires but if she has to take a day off of work....I might have to pass.

    All,


    We are doing this trip, one way or another.

    I have blocked off some rooms (5) at Roland Martin's for October 18-20th. More available, if needed.
    Rooms are $78 or $88 plus 8/nt for the slip for the small boats, I forgot what sizes. I think up to 25'? A little more for a larger one. Call 1-800-473-6766, tell them you want one of the blocked rooms, Donzi Group, Bob Wilson.

    Book a room now. It costs nothing to reserve your room. They are filling up fast. There is some reunion booked there this weekend, but they are not boaters, so there is plenty of dock space.

    You have the option of room types, regular or efficiency.

    There is a band playing that weekend at the Tiki Bar.


    You also have other options of coming on Friday, with me and others or you can do 1 night and come on Saturday. (hint, Nick).

    I have some names of people who plan on attending:

    John, Smokediver
    Mark, Naplesdonzi
    Me, Tidbart
    Budmann and Denese
    OneSubDrvr, Wayne
    VetteLt and his brother Eddie

    Buiz, Jim ...?????
    BiggieFL, Nick,....????

    Any others>?????

    Will have more details later. Bob

    Sorry you can't make it Nick. If things change by then, you are always welcome.

    If you are around and want to drive your car over, that is always a cheap option.
