SSP Great Florida Race 2017

 

January 28th - 29th, 2017

So here's the deal...

 

This would be a cruise to honor and remember a race that occurred back in 1909.  

The race back then was done to emphasize the importance of developing roads through Florida.

 

Information on this can be found here: http://assets.nation.../race/main.html

 

Plan would be for any interested members or teams

to meet up in downtown Tampa first thing on a Saturday morning January 28, 2017...

We would meet at the historic marker that chronicles the history of this race.

 

There you or your team would be handed a list of tasks to accomplish

along with a map / route, which follows roughly the historic route taken in 1909.

 

Your team would need to take photos, buy things, get information, etc along the way

proving that you followed this route.  Any missing items would add time to your arrival time, 

thus penalizing you for not completing all the tasks.

 

The club as a whole would come back together for dinner that evening near Palatka, FL,

where your time in relation to one another would be written down.

The next morning we would do the 2nd half of the trip.  All teams would leave at the same time again to 

make finding the spots and interacting more fun.

We would end near Lakeland, FL, adding the times from the day before to determine the winner.

We would then have a late lunch and cruise home, arriving Sunday evening.

 

There is a $50 buy in for each member / team, winner taking all.

 

 

Any and all ideas are welcome!

 

Attending:

JUDGES

Bruce & Melisa - GTO

 

TEAMS

 

TEAM SPUNKY MONKEY

Albert & Carol - Cobalt SS

& Joel, Anna, Hailey, & Jeremiah - Jeep SRT8

Ok, this is being called for lack of interest.

 

I'm going to still run the route, same dates.  Anyone is welcome to join but I'm not going to spend the time creating the handouts, teams, guides, etc if there is no interest.

 

If anyone wants to go with, please let me know before 12/25.  I will not assume anyone from past posts.

 

Reply here or contact me directly at 305.495.2564.  I'm going to try and document this and publish it somewhere, still researching and seeing what would be appropriate.
