KEY WEST Cannonball Run

Postby nocivic » Mon Nov 20, 2006 6:29 am

Norm and I have talked about setting up another Run to Key West, and it seems as if we have enough interest from other Members to do this. I"m simply looking for a good time after the New Year and would like to see what would work for you.

Ray, looking at doing this after the new year. I'm just looking for the best time for everyone so that we can have the best turn out.

Off season is a good time to go just because of the hotel we "Norm & I" can get on the Naval Station. Three bedroom town homes for I think $80 a night.

I'm in! Hard to say when I can go since I get called to go fly somewhere a week to two weeks ahead of time but I can normally plan around Mini and Renaissance events.

Speaking of Renn events there is this one coming up in the Keys, more of a Pirate thing then Renn thing. I may have to go out and buy a new outfit, I have a peasant English, middle class English, two Scott outfits and maybe I need to add Pirate to the cast of characters living in my head. I know, I care you, I scare myself too or I should say my-selves :twisted:

I've already sent an e-mail to my wife asking her if she'd like to go to the Pirates in Paradise when she gets back. So I am already going, well as soon as the wife gives the command. I know my place in this world.

Last year the trip involved a big scavinger hunt; so it was NOT a race! LOL I believe costumes were also involved.

Once we get some more details on this, we need to move this thread to the "State Wide" forums so all of SSM can be involved and have some fun! :)

So what kind of theme do you think we would want to come up with a for costumes?

I've seen in Mini World where some of the British Mini meets are themed like "Dr Who" or "Clowns" etc etc. We could make this a themed costume run.

:gotidea: Another idea is to combine the costumes and add a "Murder Mystery in the Keys", and pick up clue's on the drive down. Kinda like a scavenger hunt except you have to solve the Mystery of who killed whom.
