SteveJ next silly question is:  when i try to reserve a block for 6 people the price is significantly higher  compared to "2". 

Do I just reserve 2 and it'll be alright to have the other 4!?   Or will they throw us out and force us to hang out in Duval St. bars all night

Each extra person over two is, what, $6 or $9 per head. Four more people would be $36, plus 12% +/- for tax, probably around $110/night, total.

That is, if they haven't raised their rates again.

I'll probably reserve for four, and add the rest when they show up. (maybe?? >:D )

   :-[ :)   Do we all need to register before hand or is one person enough to hold one sight for 6?      Looks like 7 has signed up.   Doug is bring a guess but that only counts for 6 tents, one sight right?   Doug do you tent camp?     I'm planning to be there Thur early afternoon.  :D  Anyone going to be there before me? :great:
Alan(Santa  ;) ), one person registers, up to six people per site. The person registering should be the first one to arrive, or arrive as a group. There is an "official" limit of three tents per site, but the guy I talked to said as long as we are back in the back 40, that really will not be enforced. I assume that discretion will come in to play on this.


::) ::)   I thought it was just stated that we are in the back 40 and it is not necessary to register in advance.  The first one there registers for the spot ($60  4  2 people + tax and what ever else they charge you for ) gets the spot and 4 more people are good for the location at $6.00 each.  Split the cost up when everyone fills on location.  After 6 people fill the slot it is a repeat for the next wave.   Being in the back 40 sounds like we get 6 on one spot.  If you want to pay for yourself and have more privacy it's your call. ;)    Now the question is ' WHO'S going to be the FIRST THERE TO SECURE THE SPOT FOR THE NEXT" 5 ?   Closest PIBLIX  :beerchug: :beerchug: looks to be about 12 miles away as far as I can tell.  Not sure on that. So if you have room you may want to get beverages before you get there. Ice will  be available there but at a premium cost I'm sure.     After all, you are CAPITIVE AUDIANCE in the KEY'S. :))         :allhail: :campfire: :singing: :06: :49:

Allan or Al, which one of you will be there earliest on Thursday.

Whichever one plans to be there first should make the reservation.

So far we have:
Al
Allan
Bill Whalen
Doug Rea "You in for sure, right"
Any more takers!

I'll be talking with the asst manager tomorrow about a group per head rate, that should help a bunch.

 :great:       Ya Mike, That's what we spoke about it at the Last Blast.  Billy and Iron Butt Al, Doug +1, a Steve or 2 or 3? and me  (Alan) .  That should make at least 6. :08: Not sure who else at this time.  I'm sure there will be more discussion at the Winter Rally in 14 more days and on this sight. :beerchug: ;).

Alrighty then.

Just talked to Kim at the KOA. The group rate is $13 per person per night. However, we need at least 21 people to get this rate. I doubt this will happen, even with help from the Tampa Bay Sport Bike Rider's Forum.

The new rate is $64/night for two people, $6 ea additional person up to six.

Myself, wifey and Snake(tall Steve) plan on arriving Thurs to hopefully secure a "prime" spot and leave on Sunday morning. Any volunteers to fill in extra positions?

One person will have to register and pay per group, and should be first to arrive, or call in a reservation. Again, this is open site camping, so the site is not reserved. The group does not have to arrive at the same time.

I did try to get a smaller group rate, no joy.

Nine more and we qualify for the $13/night rate. I believe there are three  or four more coming from the Tampa Sport bike forum.

People on my list for arriving on Thurs, departing on Sunday, as of yesterday.

Tom Taylor
Ironbutt Al
Tall Steve
Myself
Wifey.

I think  I'm missing somebody?!?

Again, this is for Thurs arrival.
