Tampa RV show, Flamingles Dinner on January 17, 2020, at 5:30.
Join us for the January annual dinner during the Tampa RV show, with an evening filled with merriment and fun. Last year Tom Hirst oversaw an impromptu Rally of Flamingles members—and we ended up with 20 rigs staying overnight outside the restaurant on Friday evening. This year, many of the attendees intend to bring their rigs and we expect to do something a little special to celebrate such a fabulous turnout. Feel free to stay for free in the restaurant parking lot on Friday evening following dinner. FOR EACH RIG THAT STAYS OVERNIGHT, LTV WILL FUND THE SUM OF $20 per RIG, SO THE MORE RIGS THE MORE FUNDING WE WILL RECEIVE!
Details of the evening are below including the LIMITED MENU so you may decide in advance, but you do pay at the door. If you do attend, please honor your commitment since space is limited. Join us for an evening of camaraderie with your LTV buddies! Plus be prepared for some prizes and surprises!
NOTE: EVENT IS LIMITED TO 50 ATTENDEES DUE TO SPACE CONSTRAINTS.
