Made the first 2 RWTB events and hope to make this one. I'm still in upstate NY and can't commit until I get to FL in a couple of weeks.

No worries Tom...hope you can make it.

Just registered.

The Versys has a fresh rear tire on for carving up those super gnarly coastal roads.  :beerchug:

Glad you can make it Steve.  I just registered also.

Awesome if you can make it.

Patti and I have talked on several occasions about reviving the Bullfrog Rally, but it took the atmosphere of the Sat. night campfire at RWTW for us to seal the deal.

I have been a COG member for several years now, and seeing all the work put in (rally after rally), I figured it’s time to get off my arse and do something.
 
Ron and I talked about the (new) venue and some of the specifics and we got the ‘proper blessings’.
 
Although some details need to be worked out, we would like to move forward with putting it on the calendar for some time in late Jan. or Feb. ’19, but there are 2 events that we need to coordinate with…Douglas’ track weekend and Marty’s St. Augustine ‘Warm-up’.  Those 2 events take precedence over the Bullfrog, so I was hoping thru the active participation in the thread that we could get consensus on scheduling all 3.

We would also like to get a sense for level of interest in attending.
   
MARTY, as the So. Fla. AAD, Patti and I would really appreciate your input and working with you on some of the finer details.  We will do all the leg/grunt work.
 
Some of the specifics…

Venue:  Skydive Sebastian, Fl

Camping:  primarily tent camping, but there are some paved spots in the middle of the camping area for RVs, but no hook-ups, fire pit, not sure if there is any elec. in the camping area (will find out), but plenty of outlets up on the deck and in bar.  There are also some more rustic camp spots across airport road which is a 20 sec walk.
   
Facilities:  clean bathrooms and showers, restaurant/bar open all day, tiki bar open after hours, Amanda (our Hostess) said she would prefer to not have us set up any big cooking operation in the camping area because of the restaurant, but Roman-esque type cooking would be fine, as long as we don’t advertise it.
   
Meals:  We will be working on providing the typical fri. and sat. dinners, but all other meals will be on your own.
   
Access:  paved all the way into the camping area (one of the challenges of ‘the ranch’ was getting into/out of the property from the dirt/sand road, with the bike all loaded up).
     
Proximity:  right off of Rt. 1 and close to restaurants, bars, banks, etc.
 
Cost:  TBD

DISCLAIMER:  THIS RALLY IS IN NO WAY ASSOCIATED WITH ANY OF THE JUMP OPERATIONS AT THE AIRPORT (EG. TANDEM JUMPS, GROUP DISCOUNTS, ETC.).  AMANDA KNOWS DAVE FUCHS AND I, AND HAS AGREED TO HOST IT BASED SOLEY ON THAT, NOT ANY PROMISE OF POTENTIAL BUSINESS.

BULLFROG REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN.

I should be in for Friday night/Saturday, but the boss has conscripted me to help her out at the church as interim music director until they find a new one, so I'll have to head back Saturday afternoon.  :??:

Seasons Greeting! :beerchug:

The Bullfrog starts 3 wks. from Fri., so if you plan on attending, please try to get registered this week.

We would like to get Andrew a final count by Dec-21, so he can plan for Sat. night dinner.

For you old members, new members and forum subscribers in Fl...if you can't make the whole weekend, take a ride over for the day, any day...we'll be there.

For the 10 registered already, better turnout than I expected...thanks for participating! :great:
