2nd Annual Florida Ride to Eat 1/12/2008 @ River Ranch Resort

I'm hoping that starting this thread "early" will give all of y'all with "complex" schedules ample time to "pencil in" the...........

Second annual Florida Ride to eat, greet and meet
At the River Ranch Resort, high noon, Saturday January 12th 2008
http://www.westgateriverranch.com/index.cfm

Last years event turnout went beyond everybody's expectations
even though it was the same weekend as the Winter Rally.

The River Ranch seemed to be more than adequat and centrally located for most riders,
so let's "do it again"

This time the Winter Rally isn't until the following weekend
http://www.bmwnef.org/rally.htm
That should "boost" "our" attendance some.

So lets get that (planning to attend) list started (copy & paste)

Hans,

I imagine a number of my fellow Space Coast BMW Rider's would also like to come. I'll get a head count and let you know.

Appreciate that or rather the restaurant at River Ranch will when I call them and give them an approximate number to expect above their normal lunch customers.

Happy New Year y'all,

Just a reminder for our procrastinating friends
that it's only another ten days until our RTE at the River Ranch resort.

Here's a map:
http://www.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en...60062,0.079823

and some directions to River Ranch
3200 River Ranch Blvd.
River Ranch, FL 33867

From the Florida Turnpike, take exit 193 at Yeehaw Junction, go 21 miles west toward Lake Wales or S.R. 60.

If you're coming from the west coast, take U.S. 27 to Lake Wales and go 25 miles east on S.R. 60.

The main gate is at. Lat/Lon 27 48 299 - 081 13 183

Hans,

Here is the headcount I promised in my other post; I currently have 13 planning on coming to River Ranch. Looks like it is going to be quite a turnout after a slow start.

See you Saturday.

That's great news guys.

I've been optomistic all along and have already told the River Ranch (a week ago)
to expect between 40 or 50 from the BMW persuasion.

This has been a "quiet" thread with only 17 replies but 486 "views"
I'm hoping there will be more than a few of our "newer" members attending,
the weather forecast promises a nice riding day.

Ride report: It's Florida, for the most part it was straight and flat.

I think Mapquest is off though. Said it was 98 miles between there and my house, but it only took an hour and twenty to get home....

How do I get on the list?

I hope to be picking up a 2000 K12LT next week. How do I get on the list to be notified of upcoming events here in Florida or even South East? I rode the River Ranch trip with a group from Melbourne last year on my RT and had a great time, but have been BMW-less for about 6mths
Thanks,

Will do Dave. I'm like a kid before Christmas waiting for the LT. I've had a couple BMW's but thinking this might be the best one yet.
