So, I'm hopefully leaving Florida pretty soon. Do you guys wanna do a second north central florida throwdown? I can find the venue again, it'll have decent area for grapplers, and there will be a small boxing ring, heavy bags, etc. I can personally house a few people at my place if you are coming from afar. We can party at the various UF partying spots afterwards.
Location: Gainesville, Florida
Time: Anytime after April 26th to May 31st.
It'll have to be on a Saturday afternoon or Sunday.
Last time we had to pay 10-20 dollars (I can't remember how much) per person and sign waivers. The more people come, the less it'll cost.
If you know you will attend if you have the time, please post in this reply your exact availabilities. Lets make this happen! This time I hope more advanced members show up. Last time, we had old-school bad news hughs show up.
Any Tallahassee bullies around? That would be a better venue for a lot of the GA and AL bullies....
I will drive out to Tally if there is a venue for that too, and they'd rather do that.
ATL bullies will have an easier time to coming to G-ville I think.
ATL bullies are pussies that never show up to TDs anyways. And Talahassee is closer to ATL than Gainesville is.
I vote for anything after May 1st (after spring semester finals) but before summer semester finals in early July. Excluding the weekend of May 27,28 I gotta catch a Pedro Sauer seminar. I'll be in school till mid July but I think I might actually be able to make it. May or June sounds good to me pick a weekend.
First week of May sounds good to me. I should be out of school by then.
My work schedule is going to me super erratic, so I can't commit to any particular weekend, but once you guys work it out I'll do my best to drop in.
Awesome. Lets wait a few days and see if any more people post up.
I have a few questions
1. If the venue was moved to Orlando, would anyone be more or less motivated to make the trip? Gainesville is a small town. I'd rather not do this but I do want to throw this out. Please be honest!
2. So no one in Tally who can secure us a venue? I think this would preclude some sofla members but lets also throw this one out.
I have family in Orlando (In-Laws) so I would probably be MORE likely to make it down if it were in Orlando.
I have family in Tampa, but changing to Orlando would likely make the event a 2 day trip for me which would make it a little more difficult for me to make but it's still possible.
