We did. We had a Fifth Annual PBI-FLL Meet the following year: Fifth Annual PBI-FLL Meet: Dec 5-7, 2008

That was followed by the Sixth Annual PBI-FLL Meet: 6th Annual PBI-FLL MEET October 23-25 2009

Wow, was I surprised to find this bubbled up on my subscribed threads list today. So many people I've lost contact. I hope you are all very very well.

I'd say we're long due for another PBI-FLL Meet Dov!

Immediately after the 2009 Meet there was a vote in Florida as to whether the state should host another Meet. A number of the ballots were marked incorrectly and we are still waiting for the final results.

Are you sure you want to see people whose hair was not gray back then?

I just love seeing the posts from names I have not seen in years.

CarlaJ and I would try to be there if someone sets it up. I had next-to-no gray hair then and have next-to-no gray hair now, so no worries on that score!

I believe Commissioner Carol Roberts, Judge Burton and Theresa Lapore are still in the county, we can contact them and ask for a recount. The real problem was with Dovster, he took Theresa Lapore's advice and used a "butterfly" ballot because it used the work "fly" and it reminded him of Flyertalk.

Getting back on topic. If someone is interested, they should pick a date/place & start a new thread

Cheers.

It is getting to "Season" when airfares and hotel rates go up and getting a good place for a large group is difficult. I think we should start thinking about this in March and schedule something for after Easter. That way more people will be able to come and it will be much easier to set something up.

I will be in the area the weekend of Feb.21-24. Something before or after would work for me.

I'll be in the area Feb 13 to ~16. I've already booked my flight to get there, but have not booked the return yetI will be in South Florida at least until the 16th for a convention. If something comes together around that time, I can book my return for a later date.
