    Been on here a long time and can't remember anyone proposing a Florida meetup, other than at SnF. I would be up for anything from the Orlando line down and maybe someplace further north. Any others?

    PS, I see that I might should have put this on a different sub-forum, mods please feel free to move it.

    Edit: I think this used to be a pay site but it is free now...

    PPS, feel free to suggest other broad areas. Not looking here for a specific proposal or just one area but just the range that you would be willing to go. We can narrow it down later.

    I’d say my place, but there’s not a lot of parking. Zephyrhills might be a good central location.

    How about Winter Haven? Nice airport, good restaurant, fuel available, central location. Jack Brown's is next door if anyone wants to fly in with a float plane.

    I was also thinking that somewhere in the Orlando area would be a nice choice.

    Yep. Winter Haven isn't terribly far from Orlando, but is outside the Bravo.

    I'm out of Lantana so about an hour's flight for me. I think we can pick up a lot of people within a 90-minute flight.

    Based at Sanford. We’d be up for most of the peninsula. Albert Whitted is great with the restaurant on the airport. Parking in front of the restaurant is limited though.

    Deland has a couple restaurants on the field. C J Cannons is always good.

    We'll keep you in mind. Would love to do something monthly or bimonthly starting in June.
