Tommy/TGunn asked me to post this with a link to the event on the FS forum.  The link is below along with the info.  This is a very cool run to make.

http://forums.floridasportsman.com/showthread.php?71410-4th-Annual-Flamingo-to-Islamorada-Weekend-Trip-2012

"Keeping with tradition of having the trip on the same weekend as the Columbus Day Regatta, this year's run from Flamingo to Islamorada is set for the weekend of 10/6.

Departure time from the Flamingo Marina channel is 12:30pm.

Many of us will stay over in Islamorada as in years past. Some of us will be watching the Gators get stomped by LSU Saturday night in Islamorada. Others who wish to run back before dark usually can follow someone familiar with the route.

This is a fun run and anyone who would like to have the GPS route can benefit from the trip."

[edit]Time change to 11:30am[/edit]

I'd like to go, it's the damn 8 hour drive from Crystal River that kills me. I've never been to Flamingo so just to have the GPS tracks for future reference would be awesome.

The trip is awesome - i wasn't able to make it last year but went the year before. I recommend it and say its worth the drive - i would just stay down here an extra day or two to make it worthwhile.

We would rather stay 2 nights also but want to make sure there are other boats to go back with - not too keen on making the trip back alone lol. Maybe we can get a poll on who's returning sunday and who's returning on monday.....I think i saw some folks on the other forum are returning on monday also......

I'm headed down Friday leaving Sunday. Going to drive to La Jola. Not going to drive to the park. Did this last year, much easier.

That's a good idea - i looked it up on google maps and from where i'm coming from its 30 mins longer to drive to flamingo vs islamorada. I may do the same

I am going down friday night and running over to flamingo in the morning then running back to islamorada and spending the night saturday, returning to sarasota sunday. It should be a blast and hopefully the weather will cooperate. It is usually pretty good weather . I grew in miami and went to the Columbus day regatta probably 10 times and always had decent weather for the weekend. a little rain never hurts. a little i said. lol
