We're doing it again in Port Charlotte, FL folks, we'll post more info soon so stay tuned. Scheduled for February 25-26-27, 2011, same field as last year.

Our field is easy to get to.

Directions from the north or south on I-75

I-75 to exit 164 (route 17) head east, it's a right off the highway ramp in either direction, travel approx 4 miles and take a right onto Washington Loop Road, it's on the corner just past a green building (Tai Food Resturant) Punta Gorda water works plant is approx 2 miles on the right. Our flying site is located behind the water plant. There is a gate and access road a few hundred yards past the water plant. Come down the access road until you see our field.

I'll pray for better weather. Drove up there and got to sit and watch the rain fall last year. But I did have a cooler of cold beer, so it wasn't all that bad....
Of course, by the time I left and got home, it cleared and you guys had a great afternoon...

Foxden,
Do you have any suggestions for places to stay? Closest reasonable place I can find is the American Inn Punta Gorda off of Tamiami Trail and Acline Rd. Thanks!

I'm working on finalizing the details with the Country Inn & Suites who have been our host hotel for 2 years, this will be our third year with them.

They are right off exit 170 on I-75, I'll try to finish negotiating with them today or tomorrow depending on my work schedule.

Courtney,
There are also some nice places to rent or stay overnight in nearby Englewood. It's quaint little beachy town right on the Gulf with a lot of nice resturants to eat at. The main road running through Englewood is SR 776 Englewood Rd. There are several hotels including a Days Inn there. Hope this helps.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth over doing

WooHoo

Getting close. Plan on leaving Friday morning, early AM.

On a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the view never changes.
