Treasure Island FL - Jan 19-20, 2013

Postby goestoeleven » Sun, Oct 21 2012, 12:44 AM

I plan to be there at least one day - I'm visiting my father, who lives in Tampa. I don't know yet if it will be Saturday or Sunday. Anybody else?

I'm 90% sure I'm going too. My brother is moving to the Tampa area in early January. I'll probably be there Saturday and Sunday.

Cool. If we get a couple more, we'd have a team . . . at least one of the days. I probably can't do both.

Jeff? David?
We can always put one together with the locals too.

I will look to see what a ticket would cost, but this will probably not fit into the budget.

:( but you are choosing WSIKF, which I think is something you should do at least once. It''ll be great!

Looks like I posted yesterday while the switchover was going on and my post got lost in the switch...

I am planning on going, but of course, nothing is ever guaranteed until I get on the plane...
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

Jeff: I saw that you posted--you were able to because you are an admin, everyone else was locked out.

If you book ahead, the flights are pretty reasonable. $170 for a non-stop flight, including taxes and fees.
Kayak doesn't search Southwest, so you have to check them separately.
Here's a search from either of the Chicago airports (ORD and MDW), as well as Saint Louis and Indy.

Hey kids! I'm planning to go too.
This may be my only chance for team practice before next season. As of now i'm not planning to go to Kite Party because of going to WISKF.

How many people want to share a room for Treasure Island?
I may be there for just the weekend, needing a room for just Saturday night.

Do it!!!!!! Of course, if you are an AKA member, competing will mean that you will be qualified to go to the Nationals, even if you don't win anything (at least I think that's what Ann V. told me in Milwaukee last summer) . . . . better set aside more travel budget for Seaside and WSIKF (you'll want to go to WSIKF as a competition warmup for Seaside). :-D :-P

I missed the cheap flights I posted earlier, but Bing is saying it's 80% sure the prices will drop some again. So I haven't booked yet.
My brother has just moved to the Tampa area, so I'm going to visit him and then go Treasure Island for the weekend.
David: I'll take an extra bed (or cot) for Saturday night for sure, and maybe Sunday.

My flights are booked! See ya on the beach!

I'm flying out of Indy, but as of today, one can get the $170 flight out of O'Hare. Anyone else coming?

I believe I'll be there for one of the days. Maybe a second (depends on family commitments).
