2nd Annual Key West - Southern Most Cruise 2007 [Dec 15th, 2007]

Thanks Brentil for making this a sticky.

OK everyone, this may be a little early, but I figured if I start it now, we can gather more cars and people than we had last year.


Anyone who lives up north, west or elsewhere are all invited.. be a nice vacation away from the snow

Date: Dec 15th.

Itinterary: (All times to all be announced after a pre-run is done- all hotels, bio stops and meal locatiions will also be announced after the pre-run)

Meet up at the Snapper Creek Turnpike Plaza in Miami.

Depart the plaza and drive via Card Sound Road, to SR 905 South to US1, stopping at Long Key for lunch.

Continue down US1 to Bahia Honda Key State Park for Photo oportunities.

Push on through to Key West stopping somewhere along the way for gas and Bio-breaks.

Somewhere we will do the twisties - probably the same ones we always use. (Not many choices in the Keys)

This should be a fun run. I do plan on gathering all information for hotels, restaurants, etc. There may or may not be a collection taken up for pre-paying meals, T-shirts, catering?, gathering room in the hotel, etc. This will be announced after the pre-run as well.

Let the posts begin....

Everyone please PM me the following information:

Real name
Forum name
# attending
email address (For forms, etc.)



NOTE: Please don't start any new threads (Except when we do the poll for the date) Let's keep all the information on this one.

Yes, same as we did last year, except we will have a banquet room at the hotel for the one night (Sat) for partying, etc. Then sunday everyone can do whatever they want to.

If your coming from RI, I think you'll get the furthest distance travelled award. Unless we get a Texan or two to come...

New info

Preliminary plans:

Hotel with a banquet room and catered dinner.
T-Shirts
Name tags
Car/fridge magnet badges
Raffle for Pontiac/Solstice prizes
Goodie bags

Trying to keep the registration cost at or below $40.00 per person. The more people we get signed up, the lower the cost will be. This registration will be deadlined one month before the event date in December.

I will create a new thread for people to submit a design logo for the event and shirts, then we will vote on the best one. The selected design will then be used for each annual event.

NOTE: I know the end of July seems early to be setting this up, but if we don't get it going, it won't happen. This should give everyone plenty of time to throw in ideas, plan for the time off, etc.

I have already received two PM's from interested folks... Let's get this rolling!

Comments? Questions? Ideas?

Here is the twisty road (Although it's only 2D )



It's approximately 7 miles and there are small areas with houses, so we have to be careful near them. The rest is woods and sand. Also we have to watch out for animals, sand on the corners, and various other elements of danger. (Alligators? )

I'll be there, sounds like a lot of fun. Like Lee said, we really need for the Grand Strand folks to step up. (Assuming any of them read this forum)

COME ON GUYS, DO SOMETHING
