We (Heartland Astro Society) have again reserved a private park along Charlotte Harbor (between Sarasota and Ft Myers) and welcome any and all clubs and members in the southern half of Florida to share the event with us. I can send you pictures from last year's event that show there is a covered pavilion with lots of tables as well as other tables surrounding nearby for folks to display on. We will provide soft drinks, water, and chips for all and have a grill going for burgers and dogs at a very minimal cost. There is plenty of parking, water, electricity and a port-a-let on site. Nearby is fast food (Mcdonald, Wendys), gas stations, and a Publix. Our first meet last year was attended by 25 fellow amarters and other amateurs. We would love to move that number to 50 this year.
