Feb 27th: Mini-Meet in Fort Myers, Florida *UPDATED*

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
The firm date for the meet is February 27th.
The meet will be held at the Royal Palm Yacht Club, of which I am a member. There is adequate room and table space for at least 35-40 attendees. There are plenty of tables available as well as lots of AC outlets. There are no stairs to lug equipment up, as the meeting room is right inside the front door.

Cost for the facility is $15 per person. This includes a soup/salad/sub buffet with coffee, tea and cookies included.
Tax and gratuities are also included in the $15.00.

For those who might wish to stay overnight either before or after, there are several nearby hotels, all of which are within 5-10 minutes. The closest is about 4 blocks away and is located on the water. Cost is $109. The costs of the other nearby hotels range from $49 (Motel 6) to about $125 (Best Western, on the water).

If anyone is interested, please drop me an email or PM so I can plan on how much food will be needed.

Looking forward to seeing you here in Fort Myers!

Ron

ADDENDUM: Nearby Motel/Hotel rates and contact numbers:

All the motels listed are within 5 minutes of RPYC. There is very little traffic, so any would be good from that standpoint.

The closest is Legacy Harbour Hotel & Suites
2038 West First Street, Ft Myers, 33901 (239-332-2048)
Prices are $109 per single room. One can also get a one bedroom suite overlooking the river for $169/night or $159 per night if staying for 2 nights. This location is only about 2 minutes away from RPYC. About 4 blocks.

The following are in no particular order, as they are all within a block or two of each other, and only 5 minutes or so from RPYC.

Best Western Ft Myers Waterfront
13021 N. Cleveland Ave, North Fort Myers, FL 33903 (239-997-5511) Rates are $159.99 for 1st-4th floor and $10 more for 4th and higher. All overlook the water. AARP and AAA rates are $145.99 All rooms have microwave, refrig & coffeemaker.

Red Roof Inn

Motel 6

All are very close (within walking distance) to restaurants and a small riverside park.

I would suggest making reservations ASAP, as this is the busy time of year for all the area motels/hotels.

Gone for a few days and this comes up! Great news and thanks Ron, how about a link to the marina. At $15 with lunch included it sure is a good deal.

I most likely would be in for either date. If it was February, a friend might come along.

As of right now, I am in for either date. I might even convince my dad come with me. But for now just mark me down as one.

I'm in for either date. If anyone else from Central FL is also planning on attending we can carpool.

Thanks to all who have so far indicated interest! The date is now firm for February 27th.

Plenty of table space and outlets for even a very large group. I can guarantee that the food served will be excellent.

Yes it does, if the owner is a member of a club with FCYC affiliation. First day and night are free.

I will be posting nearby hotel and motel information this week. There are about 5 within 5 minutes of RPYC. I will need an approximate number of attendees about the 20th of Feb. Although most accommodations have continental breakfasts, if there is sufficient interest, I can also arrange for the club to have coffee, tea, rolls, etc.
