Get ready for a To The Point Winter Rendezvous on the sugar-sand white beaches of Sarasota. The dates are Friday February 8 to Sunday February 10. A lot of TTPers are putting a lot of effort into making this work, so that it will the most successful and the most fun Rendezvous so far.
Sarasota is Florida's unknown gem. The Ringling Brothers made the place and for years it was the winter headquarters of their famous circus. It's on Florida's west coast 56 miles or an hour's drive south of Tampa (so getting there with direct flights or from Tampa International is easy).
It's famous for its white "sugar-sand" beaches, gorgeous sunsets, and many cultural activities, but hasn't got the crowds of snowbirds many other places in Florida have.
We'll be updating you with schedules and costs, but we wanted you to know now: Beach Party Rendezvous, 2/8-10, 2008. We are going to have a great time. See you in Sarasota!
