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!
