    Central Florida Meetup? How about Shoot Straight and Lunch?

    I was wondering if anyone wanted to get together on Saturday (March 3, 2007) at the Shoot Straight in Casselberry.

    Maybe we can meet at 11:00am (when they open), shoot a few boxes of ammo, and grab lunch.

    Let me know if you're in!

    Well nuts! I have a meeting that morning but was planning on a visit to East Orange Shooting Sports around 11:30 because it's near the meeting. Any chance of meeting there?

    High Command (aka the Wife) has other plans for me tomorrow morning, or I would be there.

    Just Saw This...

    I already have plans for tomorrow, but I would really like to get together at some place in Central Florida for a 'get-together-lunch' some time in the future.

    I would be nice to be able to put a face with some of these forum names.

    I'm free the week of the week of March 12th...Mon-Tues-Wed....anyone? In Orlando somewhere, perhaps?

    Or on some other Saturday?

    I'm game...I guess we'll be SAFE while eating lunch somewhere...

    Okay -- I'm glad some people are interested but it is a shame no one can come!

    Can we shoot for next weekend? If so, lets make plans now. My vote is for:

    Shoot Straight, Casselberry, Saturday, March 10, 2007 @ 10:00 followed by Donato's Pizza?

    What do you think?

    There are a bunch of us who live more south, I'm in Jupiter, for whom Casselberry or Orlando is too long a drive. How about trying to set something up midway so that we might get a somewhat bigger turnout? Maybe not next weekend, but some time after that.

    I would like to plan something much farther in advance for maxium attendance...from Gainesville, I'd go 3+ hours for a 'gathering'...

    I have all summer, except for the last week of June and the first week of July...

    OK...

    Let me throw out the 'beginnings' of a plan...

    I know that many will need some time to plan ahead...

    Let's start with some dates...

    July 15 (Sunday)...until July 28 (Saturday)...

    Certainly this gives time for individuals to give preferences to a day and time to check work or entertainment schedules...

    Give it a shot...

    I am willing to plan now for any of those dates...

    That sounds great! A large get together would be nice but July is a bit far off. Something sooner would be nice.

    I wasn't looking for a particularly large attendance this time around. I realize there are a few members in this area (North Orange County, South Seminole County) and I was hoping for an informal get together and lunch -- nothing big. I specifically chose Shoot Straight in Casselberry for this reason. If you are close, great! Please show up! If not, no biggie.

    But it looks like there is interest in a big meet up. Lets do it!

    Maitland is about six miles north of downtown Orlando. North of Orlando you have: Winter Park, Maitland, Fern Park, Casselberry, and Altamonte Springs.

    They all run together.

    ayan, I might be able to make it next saturday. I will have to see what happens during the week. Running a business can make for some long hours sometimes! I should know by mid week.....

    Ken, good idea to start with some dates, but I will be up north during July and into the early part of August. Also, it is pretty hot that time of the year in Florida. How about some time during the last couple of weeks in May? That still gives us a lot of lead time to free up schedules, and it should not yet be too hot.
