2nd Request...

Ok, we're getting close to the 2013 "Barner's Bash" so, it's time for a Roll Call. If you are planning to attend the event please post here and let us know how many people you'll be bringing with you and what kind of vehicle you'll be driving.

Also, if you are a vendor of parts and/or services, we'd appreciate your participation in the form of raffle prizes. If you want to know more about the raffle, please PM or email me at vicpiano@mizlou.tv. Thanks, we appreciate your support. Vic

Sure would be helpful to have an itinerary, like:

Friday March 22 breakfast at Joe blows, 123 main st, Redon, fl
lunch..................
2:00 at XYZ museum
5:00 cruise to Tampa, meet at billy bobs 12 nostreet
overnight at ................
Saturday etc, etc, etc
Sunday etc, etc

I'm gonna' be there I just don't know which venue(s)

That would hep us all plan on when and where we can actually make it to and then we can let you have a real "roll call"

Tom, I'm looking forward to meeting you. I've posted the itinerary a number of times but I'll be happy to do it again for those who might have missed it;

Thursday, March 21st, check in at the hotel, we may arrange an impromptu diner (restaurant to be announced) on Thursday evening.

Sleep Inn
900 University Parkway
Sarasota, FL 34234
941) 359-8558
http://www.sleepinn.com/hotel-sarasota-florida-FL536

All you need to do (when making your reservation), is mention the Cigar City Flatheads and the room rate will be $115 plus tax per night. The hotel is in an excellent location, just minutes away from the "Cars of Yesteryear" Museum. I would highly recommend folks start making their reservations soon! The one catch is that, in the event anyone has to cancel a reservation, they must do so 2 weeks prior, to avoid any charges.


Friday. March 22nd, 9:00am Meet at hotel lobby and go for breakfast (restaurant to be announced). After breakfast we’ll cruise over to the "Cars of Yesteryear" Museum in Sarasota. We can get a group rate of $7.50 per person if there are 10 or more people in the group. For lunch we’ll cruise to St. Armands Circle in Sarasota for lunch at the Columbia restaurant and, if you’re so inclined, do some window shopping and people watching…! Sarasota provides excellent shopping as well as a bunch of restaurants to choose from.

Friday evening we cruise to the Ruskin Drive-In, it's about 32 miles north on US 41, a fairly easy trip from the hotel. Another option for Friday night is to attend the Friday night cruise-in at the Dairy Queen in Riverview.

Saturday, March23rd, Meet at hotel at 8:00am, go to breakfast and cruise down to Ft. Myers to tour the Henry Ford & Thomas Edison “winter estates”. On the return trip to Sarasota we may stop in Punta Gorda to visit with G.M. & “Skip” Haney (I’ll try to confirm that with George this week, but we do need a head count to give them an idea as to how many of us there will be in our group.)

Saturday evening, return to hotel…

Sunday, March 24th, 8:00am (check out of hotel) Meet at hotel lobby and go for breakfast. After breakfast cruise north to Tarpon Springs (Fred Howard Park) for our traditional Florida “Barner’s Bash” BBQ, etc.

This is our proposed itinerary for the 2013 Florida “Barner’s Bash”. We still have some “Dash Plaques” available at $6.00 each and we are looking for donations of parts and/or services to give away in the raffle on Sunday. If you would like to donate to the raffle please PM or email me at vicpiano@mizlou.tv.

One more time! I need to establish a "head count" to be able to effectively arrange several of the events we have planed for this years "Barner's Bash", not the least of which is the Sunday BBQ at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs. At this point I don't know if we'll be able to get the preferred pavilion as in past years. I also need to have an idea of how many of you will be going to Ft. Myers with us before I can talk to GM about stopping to visit with him and Skip on the way back from Ft. Myers. So, please respond here or via a PM or email to: vicpiano@mizlou.tv Thanks. Vic

P.S. I'd also like to know how many of you will be checking in to the hotel Thursday evening as we would like to have dinner with everyone.

Only 2 more weeks. We can't wait. More snow here today.
We're in for both GM and the BBQ.

Vic I'm in. I'll be there Fri, Sat and Sunday. I'll probably cruise down with Cliff Friday morning and stay the night at the hotel. Sunday Jamie will be with me at the picnic.
