mêlée (1) generally refers to a disorganized battle fought at abnormally close range with little central control once it starts (2) a confused tumultuous mingling at close quarters

I would like to host a meat-up at my house on Anna Maria Island February 4-7, 2016. Cash games, tourneys, BBQ, and beer - come to Florida and join the melee.

Anna Maria is on the Florida gulf coast south of Tampa and north of Sarasota. If you are flying in from out of town, TPA is ~ 50 miles away and SRQ is ~ 20 miles away. There are many small inns, B&B's and rental houses on Anna Maria Island. The zip code to search for hotels is 34216. VRBO is a good source to search too. My house can sleep up to 8 people - rooms will be reserved for out of town guests. PM me for the address.

More details and info to follow if there is enough interest. Please save the date and reply in this thread if you would like to attend.

Wow today is meetup day on PCF lol.

Interested of course. This one could be complicated - wife may actually disembowel me if I try to go to Anna Maria Island without her. But, can't bring kids (as of today at least) because daughter has lifetime perfect attendance and can't miss ONE DAY of school for any reason (this also messes up trying to plan a meetup myself.)

It's not that I HOPE she gets a little cold, just bad enough to keep her out of school one time - but if it DID happen, a number of things would become easier... ;)

In, barring disaster!

(Just how much is perfect attendance worth when you're applying to colleges, anyway?)

Great. I'm sure the kids would rather have a beach vacation than a perfect attendance award. :cool:

Bring the wife and make a vacation out of it. Wife gets a tan at the beach and goes shopping - you hopefully run good to pay for it all.

I wish. Kids have to be taken to and picked up from school every day (magnet school - 25 mins away, no buses) and grandma can't do that. :(

Brain percolating on other possible creative solutions...

You would think. The perfect attendance is a much bigger thing in our particular household than it should be, for some strange and private reasons. :oops:

I just realized that I've never been to Florida in the winter. I'm looking forward to it.

Dibs on a bed?

Well...my parents are moving to Florida pretty soon...not in the same area mind, but makes it within driving distance if I fly down to visit them. I guess you can call me tentative.

Ah, the perfect attendance award. I was a recipient myself, though I never actually got the certificate - I skipped the awards ceremony. The principal was allegedly pissed to no end, as he repeated my name over and over until someone shouted "He's Absent!"

The Villages, right? That is a whole world unto itself. Its nice but not really representative of the rest of Florida.

But The Villages *does* have 150 (no, that is not a typo) pickleball courts!
