we have had 2 test runs of the 'spirited' test drive, and it's gonna be so much fun! If you are considering going to this, but feel the lack of interest on this thread may keep you away, don't let it! Florida G8 owners have there own message board AND we have a VERY active Facebbook group! we expect 40+ G8's.

WhiteHotter suggested we stay at the Hard Rock Casino. Any thoughts from the Tampa folks?

Hard Rock is about $350/night for a crappy room. We are shooting for something much more affordable. We should have a Hotel confirmed in the couple of days.

I know this is a G8 thing but would anyone be upset if a few firebirds or GTO cruised to it as well

Was what I was hoping for. Won't spend much time in the room and so didn't want to spend too much money on it. Less than $100/night would be ideal. :thumbsup:

Something from this first page would be awesome! could some of you Tampa folk look at it and decide on the best location?
