Interest in a Central Florida GTG?

I am just putting the idea out there.... want to see who would be interested in a Central Florida GTG? It would probably be somewhere in the Greater Orlando area (Clermont, Sanford, Kissimmee, Oviedo, etc)... or maybe an east coast beach like Cocoa or Daytona or St. Augustine? Maybe a bar-b-que at a park somewhere and then a cruise down A1A? I know some diesel guys are showing interest, but anyone would be welcome. Not sure on a date yet either.. I know I am going to be busy with school and moving for the rest of July and most of August. But maybe August 27/28? The weather is so unpredictable down here we could probably set up a rain date. So if you would be interested in attending, let me know of a possible location to have it if you know of any, and if that weekend would be good. Thanks!

Hey,
Sounds like fun.
I'm pretty flexible with my time. End of August beginning of September sounds good.

Please not east coast. I would be interested in doing an Orlandoish one. East coast... don't think unless it was North North. Drive to Orlando for me is 7 hours I think (Florida Panhandle)

I would be interested in the Orlando area. Not really up for driving to east coast tho. I'm sure I could get another MBshop member to go also. Keep us updated on a date.
