Treasure Island Kite Festival . . Jan 14 -16, 2011

Postby goestoeleven » Sat, Oct 23 2010, 08:27 AM

Thanks to Jynx for posting the following info in my earlier rev video thread. Hope it's OK that I'm copying!

Per Jynx, Treasure Island Kite Festival 2011 is:

January 14-17

The Thunderbird Beach Resort will be the host hotel. Call 727-367-1961 to book your room! Let them know you're with the festival for the discount. The festival has a new set up to bring everyone closer together!

The festival will include... The Treasure Island Sport Kite Championships, WhatAKite, Martin Blais, The Rev Riders, Revolution Enterprises, Mega Flies and more.

-----------------

I don't know if I can make it but thought I'd get this thread started anyway.

I thinking pretty seriously about going. Anyone want to share a room and transportation from the airport?
I don't snore, but I do get up early.

I'm tempted . . . it looks like a good time. However, it's a bit too early for me to commit as I don't have my work and family stuff scheduled out that far into the future. If I go, I'd probably stay at my father's house which is about an hour+/- drive from Treasure Island.

BTW, thanks for setting up the 2011 festival forum & moving the thread for me.

(I received my room reservation confirmation and this offer...)

IF You reserve a room for five days (or more) at the Thunderbird Resort, I receive credit for a free day!

Please use code: "V.I.G.Free" and note/mention my name (Baker).

I will be staying 8 days (along with my daughter, brother, and sister-in-law)... Can't wait!

THANKS!

David: cool. Jeepster is interested too. A room with 2 beds and a couch? I'll email you about dates.
Anyone else interested? Now's the time to speak up...

Jynx, you've got a free night.
I just booked from the 13th to 18th and gave the nice lady your name. She said you're the first person to get a free night.

Yahoooo! (Not that you're coming alone, but that you'll be attending!) Sorry we won't see Susan and the kids!

Also... For anyone interested... I will be driving and would be more than happy to cart some of your stuff down there!

...If you plan on attending the Milwaukee Cool Fool Kite Festival (New Years Day), bring your stuff along and I'll take it from there!

Dayton David, Jeepster and I have a room. Maybe we can squeeze in another?

Jynx ... looks like you've got another free night. "Old Goat" from the kitebuilder forum asked me to pass it on to you.

Cheers,

As much as I like you guys, that might be just a bit too close for comfort.

I don't think there would be room for my "hot yoga."

I'll be landing in FL at 12:40pm on Friday, and bee-lining for the beach!

I leave Monday on a 5:21pm flight.

Can't wait!

It looks Jeff doesn't mesh with my schedule, but in case we can work out shared airport transportation with anyone else:

I arrive at 2:58 pm on Thursday
leave at 10:55 am on Tuesday

I plan on being there (TI) Thursday afternoon... I'm driving, so short of any unexpected delays, etc., I can make some transports, if I get there in time!

If any of you wish... PM me your cell numbers and I'll give you an update when I get closer to TI to see if we can connect.

I'd hate to promise at this time, and not be able to deliver!

Obviously, I'll have my vehicle, and am more than willing to share it if anyone needs it... including transports back to the airport.

I'm a bit late, is there still a chance to get into a room/ride share?
