Okay dokay fellow Spineys....
It is looking like enough members have an interest in not only getting together for a couple of days, but too like Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (USA) as the location. Yes!!
Presently it is looking like we are trying to get February or March of 2011, as that is the "off season" down here, and we are more likely to get lower rates, and less people around here. Ft. Lauderdale also does this for those wishing to make an extended stay past a couple of spiney days.. The following is based on the more common traffic down here.
Miami - 30 minutes away - Fabulous dining, site seeing, beaches, party locations.
Ft. Lauderdale also offers great dining and entertainment.
Homestead - 45 minutes down the Turnpike - 2 great National Parks (Biscayne and Everglades).
Key Largo - 1:30 down the Turnpike. Great dining, gambling, site seeing, beaches, camping etc.
Well, that gives you an idea of what all is down here. You can also "Google" for "Nite spots" in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale etc., based on your favorite entertainment flavor! (G) If we were a 'company' I could probably get guaranteed rates, but since we are scattered, I can't risk my credit card for rooms, so once we have an idea of what part of Ft. Lauderdale, a search can begin for the best hotel that fits our needs, or close group of hotels.
Okay, that's what I have so far. Wadda ya'll think?
