      Inspired from the discussion in the MK1 SOWO GTG thread. This thread was created to plan and bring together ideas to make a strictly MK1 gtg somewhere in the South. A poll was created, and St. Augustine was the winner.

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      FRIDAY - OCTOBER 12 - World Famous Oasis Bar & Restaurant - 8pm

      We are meeting up on Friday night at Oasis Bar & Restaurant at 8pm for drinks and some food. They have agreed to host our big group and provide an entire parking lot just for our cars.

      4000 A1A & Ocean Trace Rd
      St. Augustine Beach, Florida

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      SATURDAY - OCTOBER 13 - MK1 Classic @ St. Augustine Flea Market - 10am

      On Saturday we'll be gathering at the St. Augustine Flea Market at 10am for our GTG! Bring chairs, coolers and some cash as the Flea Market has plenty of food for us.

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

      lake Wales sound good since I'm in Ft lauderdale area or even Daytona.

      Me and my brother have 3 '84 MK1's and 1 MK1 Scirooco so I could have a couple of friends drive the other cars if we do a meet.

      We could also think about doing a local meet fridays at the tower shops in davie friday nights.

      I think all Florida mk1 owners should post in here so we can see how many we have.
      Then we can unite and pull this together.
      If we can do this I think others will come fron everywhere to enjoy some fun and sun with us

      I'm in South Alabama, Dothan region. I'd be down for a show, I just don't want to drive to Miami for it. I think for a greater turnout you defiantly need to have it more north.

      Nothing is set in stone yet. If their is a huge showing of people in NC or surrounding states we could do it further north. We are trying to see where most of the interest is based. We can move fwd from there with the actual planing.
      Are you in?

      It wouldn't be in Miami. The most south it would be would be 4 hrs north of miami in lake wales or Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, Daytona

      We never landed on even an anywhere, FL location. Personally, being currently located in Batesville, Arkansas, there's no way in hell I'd drive 15-17 hours. Like others have already said in this thread (and the SoWo Mk1 GTG thread as well), it needs to be farther north, or perhaps at least on the gulf side of northwest Florida, for more people to be interested/able to attend.

      I'm definitely interested in making it, but it depends on the location.

      Thanks for showing interest. We definitely will take the feedback from this thread into consideration. The more interest from the northern dubbers the further north we'll move this. Last thing I want is anyone to have to drive too far.

      As Steadydubbin mentioned, this won't be in Miami. The furthest south we're even considering is Lake Wales, Florida.

      Let's also hear some input as to time of the year. We don't want to interfere with any major shows. Fixxfest takes place in November. So we were thinking either before that, maybe early
      October or maybe January?

      For those of your out of Florida. What's the furthest South you'd feel comfortable driving to?

      Can you get mk1 owners in your area to chime in? Are they members on Vortex?

      I like where this is going. I'm leaning towards somewhere between Jacksonville (perhaps St. Augustine) and Mid-Georgia just so that we could get participation from the more northern guys. For those just nw of us, a trip to Tally is already 8 hours for us from sofla. How long of a trip would it be to that area? And is anyone from this area and or have connects in this area? I think a beach setting might be cool...

      I think with the amount of interest thus far from outside of Florida and the feedback, Jacksonville Beach is currently the best option. Although that's not set in stone. Keep the suggestions coming folks.

      Not bad, 12 shown interest from 5 different states.

      For where I'm located, I probably won't be going. Even Panama City Beach is over 11 hours from me, and all the places that everyone has suggested so far are over 14 hours

      Too many.

      Very good idea, much needed!

      Im from Daytona now living in West Palm. One of my cars is in Daytona and the other is in West Palm. So obviously Daytona would work for me but I think a lil farther north would be good for a better turnout like stated before.

      I agree that St Augustine should be a good spot as well. Downtown has lots of character and Its only 45 minutes south of Jacksonville.

      Either way, count me in!
