If you live in Northeast or Central Florida and have an interest in a Club 111 event (drive, get together) in April or May of '05, please let me know in this thread. I'd like to get an idea of the numbers of members and non-member owners in the area that would be interested in Elise-related events in the Spring and in the future in general. Thanks.

That's a good idea about having people from S. Florida also 008. Is there anything else to do in Sebring? I've just been there for the 12 hour.

There are a few places for eating and drinking, I'm not sure about the karting. A little further north in Ocala they have karting. It's the home to the annual 24hr event. What hell that must be!

I'd love to go. My brother is getting married on May 28th. So, please make it some other weekend. :D

And, it might even be possible for me to have my car by then, but only for the truly optimistic.

Darn, they killed the car show in Mount Dora- those bastards!!

Mount dora car show

The Lotus LTD Club is having a trip to Key West tommorrow, I can check with them and see if they have any other events planned for April or May. I cant make it to Key West since coincidentially I have to go to the Breakers tomorrow night for a party but when I'm there I can get details about the dates of the Ferrari show.

I think that having a meeting around Melbourne or Orlando might be better since it is centrally located between Miami and Jacksonville, and I think its also directly across from the west coast of Florida too.


JD, we should all just crash your wedding and instead of using limos, the entire bridal party could arrive in Elises :clap: :clap: :clap: .

My friends limo never showed for her wedding and she was forced to drive to the wedding in her Fiero in her wedding dress, so nothing is impossible.

Daytona Beach has the racetrack and they have a tour that you can take and also play some type of video racing simulator games. There is also a go kart track in Port Orange that is about 5 miles south of there, but its mainly used by little kids, and their is a classic car musuem about two miles away from the racetrack that is across from the flea market in case you want to drop off your wifes and girlfriends so they can go shopping.

Is Lotus sponsering any race teams there this year for speedweek during the Daytona 500 or the Rolex 24 hours in January or February?

Congratulations JD

So the Mt Dora show isn't your/her idea of a honeymoon? ;)
Thanks trifecta.

xxxotic,

I wonder what other shows "have better demographics" around that time as the notice says. Maybe we should just play it by ear and see what events come up in the coming weeks? I'm all for Daytona, but it sure would be nice to meet where we can get some track time in some form:)

Thats where the person who is in charge of Lotus LTD for this area lives. I have his email address on my computer at work. I'll see if he knows anything about it. I'm only about 10 minutes away from there.

I remember a foreign car show at Carlin Park in Jupiter a few years ago. Maybe it is the same thing but they might have moved it. Did you hear that it was Lotus only?
