    The Florida Meets Thread

    This thread is for all the Florida car computer meets. This thread will have all the information about, directions, maps to the next upcoming and all future Florida Car Computer Meets.

    Official 2009 Florida Meet

    When: Sunday, June 28, 2009
    Time: 12 Noon til you leave
    Where: Myakka State Park

    Location:
    Map. After you enter the gate, make the very first right turn. We will be in that area.



    Doesn't matter if your car computer is finished or not. Bring it. You can get ideas on how to make it better plus if you're new to this, or planning to put a computer in your car, truck, etc, come anyway.

    If your new to this then you definitely show up and see how other people did theirs.

    We are looking for "permanent" locations around Florida. Currently we have officially three parks to meet and are looking for more, especially in the northern part of Florida.

    Current list of cities that are official locations.
    West Palm Beach John Prince Park.
    Broward County Markham Park.

    If you want a meet in your area, please do not just post, "hey how about a meet in (insert city)?"

    If you want a meet in your area go look "scout" for a place:
    -a nice park preferred.
    -with some shade.
    -accept pets and kids.
    -handle 10 to 20+ cars.
    Then when you find a location, post a LINK to the parks website.

    Scheduled time and months currently for the meets.
    February, April, June, August, October.
    Usually the last Sunday of the month except October. The October meets will be set earlier in that month. There will be no meets during November December because of the holiday season.

    Time: either 12noon or 1pm EST. They last until you leave.

    What to bring to the meets.
    chairs, sunblock, umbrellas (in case of rain or a lot of sun), cooler with ice and drinks, water- especially if you bring pets.
    Alcohol is not preferred since you are driving home after the meet.

    Bring a camera.

    Usually after the meets, we hit a local restaurant for food. Plans are in the works for an actual "cookout" at the meet.

    Subscribed! Im in Orlando so if you guys want I can help find a place here. I know most of you are probably from Ft.Laudy and Miami but maybe we can get people to come out from Tampa, Jax, and Tally too.

    I am interested in coming to the meeting.

    Let's get a date and location confirmed so I can plan accordingly. I live in Cocoa Beach, FL. Seems like Orlando and Tampa are good places.

    Any thoughts?

    I do not see a Barron park anywhere on the map link you posted, just Yeoman park, and a few place marks for McDonalds, the School Board, and some Fur company

    The address is also not really an address, and more an intersection. This could result in a lot of people not knowing where to meet for sure

    Is this it?





    Or maybe this, "Home of the Swamp Cabbage Festival" (Could not find an address for this place)

    Barron Park - LaBelle, Florida




    Barron Park has always been the center of activity in LaBelle.
    The last full weekend in February is our annual Swamp Cabbage Festival and Barron Park is host to a majority of the activities. Tens of thousands throng to savor that sweet delicacy "Swamp Cabbage" a.k.a. Heart of (Sabal) Palm, Florida's state tree.
    Many civic organizations hold fundraiser bar-b-ques in the park utilizing the newly renovated pavilion.
    Play tennis in the park on our lighted courts. Sit at the river's edge and watch the river traffic. Picnic with your family or lunch under the shade of LaBelle's famous oaks.
    All year long, weekends and weekdays, something is going on at Barron Park.

    I posted the address, it works on IG, but not google maps weird.

    The address posted takes you directly to the park.

    Yes its where they have the cabbage festival.

    I called the city of labelle to get the correct address to the park.
