Also it's only open to the first 200 rsvp's so get your name in.
There's plenty of parking at the State Fairgrounds but in the vicinity of the Columbia restaurant you'll be lucky to find a spot for a Mini Cooper. It's a busy area with numerous meters and pay lots. The Columbia has a parking lot for guests but as I remember it might hold 50-60 car size vehicles.

X2, don't drive the motor home down to the restaurant expecting to find parking. Columbia has a couple of overflow lots but those are for cars only and are almost always full. Plus the Entegra dinner is for 200+. There is an Ikea kinda nearby as a last ditch. also the dinner will be around rush hour so there will be that to contend with.

We had not accepted delivery when the Indy owners dinner occurred, but we were invited by Tad Jenkins and were made to feel extremely welcome. The dinners, however, are becoming larger as more and more rigs are being sold. We won't be in Tampa, but maybe we'll meet and get to know some of you in Redmond next summer.

Welcome to iRV and the Entegra forum. Don't know how long you've had you coach, but congrats and welcome to the Entegra family. Consider joining us in the Entegra Coach Owners Assoc and maybe even Summerfest II.

Thanks!

We actually got our coach in June from Lazydays. We have the first Aspire 44B but didn't get to use it much yet due to several factors.

I sent in the check for the FMCA Entegra Owners Assoc but haven't heard anything.

We are Tampa Bay residents (Safety Harbor) so the Columbia is a local restaurant for us!

We are planning to be at the RV Supershow in January. Not sure about Summer Fest as we have some other trips scheduled (RV and otherwise).

You've got a nice rig....hopefully your schedule will allow you to use it often. You'll meet some nice folks at the dinner, and particularly the great group from Entegra, including Joyce.

Our ECOA group is just getting going; it is real. A group of us will be parked together at the Tampa Show...a little mini-rally. Maybe the day(s) you attend, you can stop by our little area, and I'll offer a cold one to you. Our ECOA President lives in the Tampa area and will be at the show. If you haven't received an email from him yet, you will. Start up takes a little time and we've only been at this since an organizational meeting late Aug.

And again, congrats on your coach.

Thanks again. It's nice to feel part of something. Look forward to meeting you there.
