    Hello Tesla owners and enthusiast. It's been a long 7 months since our last gathering in beautiful SW FL. Now that the holidays are behind us and our greatly missed snowbirds are back, I thought we can plan a meet up. For those that do not know, SW FL Tesla Group is a regional group within the Florida Tesla Enthusiast Club.
    I'm going to attempt to throw out some potential dates and would appreciate some feedback of which would be more feasible for you. Most likely the date with the greatest interest will in all probability be our winner. We can gather for lunch or an early dinner. As far as the place, I thought it would be more convenient for everyone to meet near the Supercharger. There is now several new restaurants in Gulf Coast Town Center. Here is a link to some restaurants (not all are listed) http://www.gulfcoasttowncenter.com/shop/gulf.nsf/directory. Once we settle on a date and I have an estimate of people attending, I can gather more information on a location.

    If you are interested you can either post on this thread or private message me. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone again and welcoming new owners around the area. Of course anyone from outside the area that would like to attend are more then welcome. This would be a great opportunity to use the Ft. Myers Supercharger.

    Saturday Feb. 1st
    Friday Feb. 7th
    Saturday Feb. 8th
    Saturday Feb. 15th
    Sunday Feb. 16th

    Looking forward to meeting the group.

    Hi Roland,

    That trip sounds great, unfortunately I will not be able to go. Are you available on any of the other dates I listed for the Ft. Myers meet-up?

    Erol,

    Feb 7 & 8th work best for my wife and I. If Feb 1 is the best for everyone else I'll be there with a friend but Kim won't be able to make it.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    Thanks,

    Roland

    Sunday, February 16th in the afternoon works best for us, but we will try to adjust our schedule if possible.

    I thought that the Islamorada treated us very well at our last function and handled a large crowd very well.

    I recently went to Connors Steak & Seafood for lunch and thought it was great. I'm not sure how well they can accommodate a large group.

    I think that will be our best option too Larry if we draw a large group. Connors would be for a smaller group option.

    Thank you to those that have responded either here, PM, or e-mail. I will give it a couple more days for more responses then we can decide on the final date, time, place.

    Please join us for lunch, drink specials, and great conversation with fellow Tesla Owners and Enthusiast. We will have a private room, please ask for the Tesla Club group. We will also have a place to park together on the east side of the restaurant. I have e-mailed an evite to everyone. If you did not receive it please let me know via PM.

    Most likely in, assuming no frantic calls from tenants.

    My two favorites Tesla and Connor's. Ill try and make it.
    I just read this thread and was going to suggest Connors but you all beat me to it. Lunch deals atmosphere and friendly staff can't be beat.
    Andrew is the Manager there and I am sure he will assist. I have his card if you need a contact.
    We spoke in the past about putting a charger in at the restaurant before the supercharger plan was revealed so I know he will be receptive.
    118 miles one way for me but Connors is worth it.
    Cheers
    Mark

    I look forward to meeting you Mark. Connor's is also a favorite of mine. I spoke to Richard who said he was also a manager. He was extremely friendly and even showed me where we can park all the cars together.


    We are one week away, and so far about 30 guest have RSVP. We can still accommodate more so please let me know if you are able to attend.

    Erol

    Really wanted to join in but I just landed about 2am and just got home so I think I'll have to pass this time. I'll be overnighting there on Monday anyway so I'll still get my Connor's fix at lunch Tuesday. LOL
    I was told Andrew left the restaurant business unfortunately by Matt Williams, managing partner. In an email he seemed just as friendly.
    Hopefully next time
    Dont forget to post some photos please.

    Enjoyed the get together, as always, met a lot of great Tesla owners and shared a lot of info and learned a lot. Any follow up on the condition of the woman that had the medical problem at the luncheon?
