SPRING THING XV

The host hotel is the Holiday Inn Cocoa Beach Oceanfront Resort, 1300 N Atlantic Ave, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. Call 1-321-392-1647 9 to 5 M-F. You can also call Amanda 321-392-1653. The room rate is $84.99 per night and $184.99 for beach front or a loft style room, you must mention Group Code M I N to get these rates.

Hope to have all done by 2:30 for those who need to drive home.
Cocoa Beach and the surrounding area have a lot to offer. When you have free time please take the opportunity to explore the countryside. Please remember that Florida is a tourist destination for lots of people from different countries who are not completely relaxed with our driving rules (like keeping to the right side of the road). So be very watchful when you are driving around the area.
Also, it goes without saying that Alcohol and driving do not mix; so when you are having fun all weekend, if you should be having a few drinks please don’t get behind the wheel of your Mini/MINI.
We hope you all have a great weekend.
We never forget that the Spring Thing has kept going because of your support and attendance. Thank You!
