When does it end exactly

Folks,

I need to pick some people up at the airport in Tampa on 2/26, scheduling flights now...can someone tell me when on 2/26 the rally is actually over? Does it typically conclude on 2/25 or are there typically closing ceremonies on the last day (26th)? If so, how late in the day? Thanks, Gerry Goffinet

6948 and coming
They offer rally power (3 amp) and city water in series with others in your row. They have dump facilities, but no live sewer hookups. Soooo, you can have lights and a tv set, but no electric heater, and no air conditioner. Breakfast is around 8 am daily (part of the rally), but you need to get there before 8 to get breakfast.
Other meals are your responsibility, with the exception of the closing banquet on Saturday evening, which is also provided with your rally fee. Ice cream is also provided after each evening's entertainment. On-site restrooms with showers are available, as is dial-up internet on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The Forum Dinner and Movie is tentatively scheduled for Thursday night, as the Thursday entertainment is usually, umm, not as good as the stuff you see Friday and Saturday. Any requests for a specific movie should be made no later than a week before opening day of the main rally, so the AV people can count votes for a specific movie, and procure it.

Closing ceremonies are typically at 11 AM Sunday. ( I will double check this. If it is different, it will be changed in this post). Tampa airport is about an hour and a half's drive away, maybe a bit less, but you need to leave your Airstream before entering the airport. Clearance at the main terminal is about 8'.

After the rally

Terry and group, I'd like to stay in the vacinity of Sarasota for about a week after the rally. I suspect I can't stay at the fairgrounds. Is there another place you are aware of that I can contact and make arrangements? Thanks, Gerry

Yes, there is a state park a tad further south of Sarasota, called Myakka River State Park. Reserve now, as it is the height of Snowbird Season here.

Punta Gorda is just another 45 min south depending on what you are looking for - Paradise Park - Airstream - Class A only park with free golf on a 9 holer - full hookups for I think 119US for the week.

They usually have spots on the Visitor Parking section.

Hi,
The rally is at the florida state fair grounds in Sarasota, Fl. It is exit 210 off I75 south of Tampa.
I don't know the actual address.

florida rally

we are signed up to go this year, we would hate to miss it.
they don't have this on the registration form, but, there is a special weekend rate of $85 if you can only attend from Friday on.
This is nice for folks that still have to work. Last year we got there friday later morning. It was a fun weekend, I agree the entertainment was a bit dated, but the company was good and everyone was very friendly.

It was fun being in a sea of airstreams.

Hi Ben,
I don't think it's 2 miles. Go west from the interstate and (I could be silly and say follow the silver trailers, but I won't) It's about 2 miles, give or take, on the left hand side. There is a big sign out front announcing the Sarasota fairgrounds. The first time I drove up after Terry, I had to stop and ask someone and every body seemed to know the airstreams were in town.
It's very easy to find.
Marie
