This post is to put forward the Bay Area Renaissance Festival in Tampa Florida for consideration to host the 2014 Rendevoux.....

The Team of Lairde Guardn, Lady DArbanville, Seamus, The Lady Phoenix, Pinky, Garris McDaniels, Esparanza, Paul Raab, and a few others are all working together to make this come about.   

We are putting forward, St Patrick's Day Weekend or 14, 15 & 16 March of 2014, and since it is so early in the year, we are requesting an early selection for 2014 Rendevoux, since we would like to have at least 8 months to be able to prepare for such a prestigious event.

Thank you for your consideration...

Clarion Hotel & Conference Center Busch Gardens
2701 East Fowler Avenue
Tampa, Florida

We have worked out a preliminary contract with The Clarion Hotel. 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.

O'Briens Irish Pub Tampa

Tampa, Florida 33618
Owner: Bernie O'Brien
General Manager: Joe Carey
Phone: (813) 961-4092

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. 


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


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.
