Florida G8/Caprice/SS Extravaganza, May 1-3, 2015, Tampa, FL

Post by elc32955 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 4:03 am

OK folks, this show is very well attended. There is confirmation on people & cars attending from as far away as North Carolina. This has turned into more of a SE US regional show over the last two years.

Here's the linky to the official Facebook page.....

https://www.facebook.com/events/850957458258162

And a link to the G8 forum discussion page...

Note that the Embassy Suites Brandon and the Homewood Suites Brandon are the two host hotels, the show itself will be in the middle of a shared parking area. Special rate for show attendees only of $109/night at the Embassy Suites, $99/night at the Homewood Suites. I'm opting for the Embassy with free full cooked breakfast each morning and the manager's cocktail hour/reception each night on the house :) There's a link off the Facebook page to make hotel reservations. If you try to do it off the regular Hilton sites, the rates get jacked to the regular traveler rates.

Plenty of fun to be had by all! I've been the last two years and it's a good show.

If I'm around next year I'll definitely be there. I just didn't have the car up and running yet and I also had Reserve duty last weekend. I'll definitely be on the road soon and will try to make a future event before the 2016 Extravaganza.

Yep... I've got to put them up soon, been somewhat pre-occupied for the last month or so.
