We will be there with Mr. Utley and tailgating goodies. Room booked at La Quinta Fairgrounds Friday and Saturday. Looking forward to another epic Tampa Tailgate!

Reservations have been made for a while. Cant wait to see everyone!
I knew this girl made of memories and phrases, who lived her whole life in both chapters and stages.
Danced 'til the dawn, wished all her worries away.

She's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown.

[smilie=smirk.gif] [smilie=wrygrin.gif] Reservation was made a few weeks ago. Now just have to have the flights fall into place. Fingers crossed.

Airfares here are $400.00 - $500.00 r/t, with most flights leaving here around 6 in the evening, and getting into Tampa around 11 PM.
Then all return flights leave Tampa at 7:15 AM the morning after the concert.
Ridiculous.

IF I go, I'm seriously considering driving down, since I'll have a LOT more free time on my hands then.
To be continued.

Booked a room at La Quinta for Friday & Saturday but I'm reluctant to commit to much more.
Based on recent history, any time we make plans for something that far in advance bad stuff happens and the whole plan goes in the crapper. :roll:

Booked the La Quinta Inn & Suites Tampa Fairgrounds a few weeks ago for the 17th-20th.

If we can get a flight that doesn't cost Jon's unborn son from a future hook up we will be there.

Wish you guys all the luck with flights and all. I sort of feel bad, I live over on the space coast and am hitting all 3 of the Florida concerts.
Hope to see you there, will have jello shots ready!

I've got a plan to be there.
One way fares aren't bad.
Snowbird friends will meet me in Tampa and we'll all drive home to Ottawa after the show.
Now I just have to get tickets. PH club tickets did not work out, so I'm ready for the public fray on Friday.
Hope to see everyone there: will BN be under the tree again?

I'm cancelling my room at Red Roof Inn. (Thursday to Monday).
Stayng at LaQuinta instead. $69.00 per night for us Senior Citizens. :lol: :lol:
I've decided I'm going. If I don't find a decent airfare by April 1st, I'll drive down.
I realize in the end it'll probably cost me more than if I just buy a plane ticket, when you factor in gas, two nights on the road, meals enroute, etc., but I've had enough of getting jacked around by the airlines.
