Polk county area meetup? thats Central FL

Postby hunter » Wed May 13, 2009 8:10 pm

Hey everyone, I know we just had a meetup, be anyone wanna meet up at say Bartow Airport (KBOW) or somewhere around there? Maybe Lakeland (KLAL), or Sebring (KSEF) as alternatives? Just seeing if there is any interest, look forward to replies!

Man, wish I could join you there! I flew out of KGIF last year, did the seaplane rating and was also renting "normal" planes at the FBO in Winter Haven, the week before Sun 'n Fun.

Missing Florida a lot, had the time of my life during my Commercial training in Vero Beach, back in 1993... ;)

I know! I hate you for saying that now, here in Milan it's pouring today! :(

BTW, when I was in Polk County last year, I even ended up on the local newspaper, the News Chief, check this out!

Cool, huh? ;)

Hope to catch you next time I am there! Got some friends I need to visit in Pompano Beach sometimes...

If you have a meetup in Central Florida, I'll try to be there. Anywhere in Polk County would be a short drive (less than two hours) for me. Let me know if this gets started back up again!

It looks like it's just you and me Hunter. I don't see any other interest yet. Is there anyone else interested in a Central Florida UCAP meetup?

Me too!
(except, being the lowly pauper I am, I'm at the mercy of my FBO's rental plane being available. It usually isn't too much of a problem.) :D

Where did you have in mind? Is ZPH central enough? Great airport, restaurant on site, Cheap gas, plus Skydive and glider OPs make for some visual interest.
Gilbert field in Winter Haven isn't too bad (never been.) but at least it's out of the convoluted mess in and around Orlando.
