    Hey gang, don't forget to book your flights, hotel (check the preferred rates), and to buy access. All the details you need can be found here, and TONMOCON access can be purchased here.

    fwiw, I found it was least expensive to fly into Tampa Bay, then take the hour or so drive with a rental to Sarasota. The airport in Sarasota is quite small, so not many direct flights, etc.

    Looking forward to meeting you there!

    Indeed, checking this week, it was certainly possible to fly all the way to Sarasota, but the flight options were... ugly. They were also about 20% more expensive than Tampa. So we are aslo flying to Tampa and renting a car.

    Officially have the hotel booked for the girls and I!!! We will be coming in on Thursday the 8th- still planning on flying into Tampa and renting a car, and going to the Dali Museum on the 9th. Anyone there that early is welcome to come along!

    Everything is set- flights, room, car- now all we need is October! The Lido Mangroves are very near by the hotel- thinking of getting some kayaking in!

    We arrive late on the 9th, and will get to explore a bit of the Sarasota area on the 11th and 12th.

    Three weeks!

    Note, the Lido Beach resort group rate is no longer available. However, there may still be some rooms available, and there may be favorable rates available at the Holiday Inn nearby.

    Let me know if you need assistance with this and I can get you in touch with the right person.
