    We are forming the email contact list. We will get together after the first of the year, probably second week in January. The first get-together will be for fun...run what you brung kinda deal. We'll have a short business meeting also.

    You all can start throwing out club names now if you want, or save them for later. Our first thought is simple, Central Florida Fast Electric Boaters.

    Default Meeting Set!

    OK guys,
    Sorry for the short notice but emails should have gone out to everyone last week and I just found out they didn't! DOH!

    The first meeting of the new club will be held in Land O' Lakes, FL this Sunday, January 13th. We will gather at 2p.m. for a run whut ya brung session. After a period of fun we will sit down to discuss forming the club.

    You can't park right up on the lake so if you have a little red wagon or something to haul your stuff back behind the house and down to the lake it would be a good idea.

    The meet will be at the home of Mike and Darby Harvey. Bring your own drinks!

    Address:
    3006 Lake Padgett Dr
    Land O Lakes, FL 34639-5006
    (813) 929-0053

    I suggest you use mapquest to find your way.
    http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...&zipcode=34639

    Basically take I-75 to SR56. Go west to US41. Go north to Bell Lake Road. Turn right on Lake Padgett Drive and go all the way to the end.
    That's it!

    Hope to see you all there!!

    Just wanted to say that I had a great time today. I can't wait to get together again soon. Thanks to Mike for the hospitality and the great setup.

    It was nice to meet Jim and Herb. There is def. alot to be learned from these guys.

    Herb has some very fast tunnel boats!

    Obrien,

    Glad you could make it. Nice to meet you too. We had a great time and a really good group of guys attended. We had 8 people at the first meeting, mostly because the weather report was really bad. Ironically, the weather cleared up at precisely 2 p.m., our appointed meeting time!

    Our short informal meeting was very positive and we will definitely be moving forward with the club. I asked Mike to pick a date for the next get together. I'll let you all know. We hope more of you can make it next time. By then, the playoffs and the super bowl will be history too! Haha.

    I would be interested in meeting up with you guys the next time you run.
    I live in odessa so the ride wouldnt be bad at all. I had tried the local tampa club off waters like I said in rcu but like you had stated, they are not too keen on an FE running at all! Have a lil rigger I hope to have setup by this weekend an have a skunk works cat setup soon so would love a group of guys to run with. let me know.

    be ready to do some boating maybe saturday if I can get the last min. bits Im looking for, you guys must know how hard it is to get a prop in tampa. NO LHS keeps anything but gas ones in stock or the biggest X4 series none of which I need , I just need a prop an proper tools to finish the assembly, youd think with a full matco roller toolbox I could find the right drill bit an allen wrench but nooooo. If anyone is down an I can jump through the above hoops I am so ready to get this rigger in the water on saturday! then maybe not, it could be sometime next week on a day off. but PM me if anyones interested.

    As it stands right now, I will most likely not make it. I am going to try though. I will be out of town working, but hopefully I can get back.

    I know I said I would be there last time but plans evaporated when I had a family emergency. Problems quelled for no so I will say I am a maybe to be there. Will try an def. want to be a part of this club but circumstances as of late have made scheduling a difficult issue. Want to be, hope to be, an probably will be! Course which boats I have to run that day aree a whole nother matter. Hoping the rigger gets finished this weekend an have the triton up an running by then!
