The Gainesville crowd will be there, we had a great time at FSS#5 this weekend, next time I think we'll camp out and stay for the whole weekend

I added a pre registration spread sheet in the first posting of this thread, a couple things to note:
1- Shirt size: We are working on the shirt design and cost, we are looking at offering collared shirt with a pocket because many of you asked for them last year. Please indicate your size in the column, I will post the cost as soon as I know it (somewhere in the $15-$20 range)
2- Saturday lunch: We are working with a restaurant from nearby Williston to provide "box lunches", so we need to order ahead of time. Click on the little triangle in the upper right corner of the "Saturday Lunch" header to see the available menu, and enter your choice # in the column. lunches for family/friends are also available for an additional $10, please indicate additional choice # in the column. The pilot's lunch cost is included in the entry fee.
Sunday lunch will be "make your own sandwhich" We will provide lunch meat, fixins, chips, drinks...etc
There will be no food provided on Friday, so please plan accordingly!
Entry fees (paid at the field):
Unlimited Saturday $30 (includes lunch)
Unlimites Sunday $30 (includes lunch)
Shirt $ 17

A little over a month to go to Tangerine 2012.
The shirt design is very close to be finalized, I will post a picture and more details as they become available.
We have a Radian ARF for the raffle, Gordon is in work on more things, he will post details soon.
Thanks to the guys that pre-registered already!

The Red Roof Inn is nice, but the Super 8 across the street now shows a rate of $51 per night for a room with two beds, total cost $110.67 with tax, so I'm going with that.
I'll miss that waffle maker.

Big Tangerine Raffle is on and tickets are available
We are fortunate to have some really generous folks and hobby store owners that have made it possible to run a very exciting fundraising raffle at the 2012 Tangerine.
Barry Kennedy of Kennedy Composites has also generously pledged up to $250 to the winners of the Tangerine events in his "Glory Days" promotion. If you win the contests with a sailplane sold by Barry at Kennedy Composites you will also win a cash reward as follows. DLG winner $50 - RES winner $50 - UNL Sat winner $75 - UNL Sun winner $75.

Yes you can buy tickets from now right up until Saturday night prior to the drawing at the Tangerine on Sunday. If you are an out of town winner we will ship your prize as done in previous years. Please be generous and buy some tickets at the online store.

Judging from the sign-in sheet plus all of the people who are planning to come but haven't signed up yet, this is shaping up to be the biggest Florida TD contest we've seen in years.

I went ahead and corrected my earlier post.
The rates are going up as the occupancy is going up, so reserve early to get the best rates.
