No need to reply if you're punking out, just those that actually are going, or at least think they might.

This is where I'm staying:
www.floridadiscounthotels.ws/gnv/Guest-House-Inn.html
Which appears to have since changed names to the Flamingo Inn & Suites....so I honestly have no idea if my reservation will be good or not.

At any rate, That's where I think we're staying.... If anyone wants to get together on Saturday night for a beer or a cigar or something, let me know. IM or email me for cell #.
For anyone at the shoot, I'm the guy with the yellow Addidas visor (provided I don't forget it) and the tattos of the Great Seal on my calves.

I'll be there. Staying at the Holiday Inn as well. I'd love to get together on Saturday night. Also getting in Saturday afternoon, probably more towards evening. Sent you an email Norman74.

I'll be heading up on Friday night with the wife and kids. We have a family get together Saturday to attend. I'm not sure what time we'll be back at the motel, but it should be before dark. We are staying at the Day's Inn(i think?) there on US90 right off of I75.

I would definately be up for going and getting some driks somewhere!

I have NO idea where in Lake City there is to get drinks, and not get drooled on by the two-tooth mullet-wearers. If all else fails I'm sure we could meet up at someone's hotel & take over the balcony or something, lol.
Link Posted: 8/28/2003 6:18:16 PM EDT
If all else fails... A balcony would work !!!

But not at my motel, it belongs to some distant family members and they are strong cristian types. Wouldn't want to get in trouble and get my dad upset at me.

Just out of curiosity, how old is everybody? I'm 28 myself, and the guy i'm bringing with me is 28 too.
Link Posted: 8/29/2003 4:11:38 AM EDT
28 as well.

I'm sure there has to be a major chain restaurant with a bar somewhere on 90.

I guess it goes without saying that I'll be there. .

I guess I'm the old man, I'll be 43 Sunday, day of the shoot. Don't let that fool you though, I can hold my own, ask those young whipper snapers I shoot with every month.

I'll also be at the range Saturday morning driving a blue Expedition.

Barring a horrific catastrophe, I (29 )intend to be there with a friend (33). It will our first trip out there.

He doesn't intend to shoot, but I'm going to take enough ammo and try to goad him into it once we're there.

I'm the skinny Jesus looking guy in the red F150.

What time in the morn' does every one show up? I'm heading over from Jax. I don't know how long the trip is and I need to allow for 'Where the hell are we?' time.

Get there early as possible to help set up. This is the entire reason I'm spending money to stay in Lake City when I could stay in Gainesville for free; I am planning to get there early to help set up. Of course, the best laid plans.....
But, hopefully all will work out and we'll be out there early. I believe the festivities officially begin at 9AM.

Coke, Diet Coke, and Sprite. No banner. I did ask about the banner and the girl there didn't know anything about it.

(Long distance award heLooking forward to meeting everyone!!!!
Time to go play some ghost recon and get some practice
Link Posted: 8/29/2003 6:03:59 PM EDT
I would suggest the Appleby's (Spelling?). It's on East 90 and very close to the Holiday Inn. I would suggest around 7 or 8 Sat. night?
I know norman74 offered his cell phone and I have his and he has mine, but did anyone else get your number Rob? If you haven't gotten his number feel free to im or email me as well.
I'll be leaving around 2-3 tomorrow afternoon from the Tampa Area.
