RenDezvous 2014 at BARF Tampa FL. 14 thru 16 March
« on: October 23, 2013, 12:21:47 AM »
St Patrick's Day Weekend or 14, 15 & 16 March of 2014,

BAY AREA RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL
http://www.bayarearenaissancefest.com/
11315 North 46th Street, Tampa, FL 33617

HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS

Clarion Hotel & Conference Center Busch Gardens
2701 East Fowler Avenue
Tampa, Florida
813-971-4710

We have worked out a preliminary contract with The Clarion Hotel. (THIS IS PRELIMINARY, HOPE TO HAVE FINAL WORKED UP VERY SOON) PENDING We have a block of rooms at the amazing price of $59+tax. It comes to $66.08 a night. This includes two double beds, a microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, hairdryer, ironing board, swimming pool, FULL breakfast (for those that wish to sleep in and skip the tailgate) and is right down the road from BARF. Shuttle service is NOT included, but it is less than a five minute drive on the same road.  We even visited a room to ensure it was clean and free of bed bugs. It is a beautiful hotel, very clean, and the pool is gorgeous.

LOCAL CAMPING

Happy Traveler RV Park
9401 E Fowler Ave Thonotosassa, FL 33592?
(813) 986-3094
happytravelerrvpark.com

RV park with 224 beautiful sites. Wooded and sunny areas. 30/50 amps throughout.
Close to Busch Gardens, USF, MOSI, Moffitt cancer center,Seminole Hard Rock Casino, and 30 minutes from gulf beaches.
At a glance: shuffle board · ping pong · heated pool

FRIDAY NITE MEET AND GREET   (this is also subject to change as things are confirmed)


WEATHER

Usually in the low 70's at this time of year......


SCHEDULE THE FAMILY VACATION TO INCLUDE RENDEVOUZ

Plan to come early or stay later, visit the many vacation resorts, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, Space Center, Disneyworld.....Air boat in the everglades, walk the beach, take a swim in the gulf or the atlantic, enjoy one of the many Dinner Theaters. .....  and so much more.

And the fact that a number of other Rennie Groups already gather at BARF each spring for their Annual Gatherings and Invasions and many members of these groups are also RF members....    Bringing the Rendavouz to BARF in 2014 could easily become the largest gathering of RFers we have ever had.

I LOVE that place!  Well, the people anyway.  The place can be anywhere, the people are irreplaceable.  And by that, I mean, the company.   ;)

TJ -- Please change the Friday night Meet and Greet to TBA -- we are exploring another option this year so that people are not relegated to one menu on a very small patio. Don't fret -- it shall be more amazing than ever! PINKY Promise! ;)

We will be given a large portion of the patio for our group.   Also food is reasonably priced and very good, which is always appreciated by those coming in from out of town, the place is also highly recommended by locals.

Contract with the Clarion is all worked out.  $59 people!!!!  I have 25 rooms blocked but they are graciously offering to add more if need be.  The only thing is they are blocked under the name "The Irish Penny Brigade".  I used them last year and was able to keep the low price, using the same group.  Book away!

I have secured a large number of discount tickets for the low price of $14.95.  I will have them available at Friday night's Meet n Greet and also at Saturday and Sunday tailgates.  Please find me if interested in these tickets.  Gate price is $19.95.  And for those with wee ones, I have secured free child tickets.
