that's why you put the dates in the subject line.
as of right now you can't put in a date range, but they will be adding that in a future version

I'm still kicking myself for missing last year. I'm pricing plane tickets now for two people. Think I'll fly into Tampa. Is there a shuttle or or do I need to rent some wheels?

Someone from the FVC should really chime in and answer the questions here. It's only 3 months away now, people need to make their plans.

Also please have whoever is in charge of the van show get in touch with me.

Most questions can be answered on the site. or you can e-mail me at Judpilon@aol.com and refferance c of c. hear is some info you may be interested in.

Better late than never, we're booked at the hotel and for our flight to Tampa. We lucked out on the room this late in the game. It was the last non smoking room they had available for the 9 day stretch there. It's probably not in the same block as the rest of the rooms but at least it's the same hotel.
We touch down in Tampa at 11:43 AM Saturday the 28th and leave out at 8:20 AM Monday Feb. 6th day after the Superbowl.

Okay Vanners!
Guess What---I get to go to C of C in FLA! YEAH!

I checked the list on the Council site and didn't notice anyone else listed arriving at my time. I know that must be some Vanners getting in around the same time. I am going to book a limo ride from the airport to the hotel on Thursday afternoon--and I am sure to have more space in the car than I can fill up. (I know, but planes charge for boxes of toys now!) So, if you are arriving before 2:30 pm on the 2nd and would like to share a ride--please let me know.

I am not sure about Sunday yet--but I would use a ride from the hotel around 11:30 am to the airport in Tampa. I just haven't figured out that ride yet. So, if you want to get on that bus too, we can work out something there also!


Cherish your friends!
HUGGS to all!

You can register on the council site so everyone knows who is going. http://www.councilofcouncils.com/ I thought I heard that the hotel is close to full which is great. The wife & I are looking for things to do if anyone has some cool ideas? Getting in on Tuesday!

COUNCILS OF COUNCIL UPDATE: Met with management team at hotel today; the bad news is we are only 2/3 booked for hotel (insert pouty face here). The good news, the hotel is not imposing the special rate cut off as previously posted. You can still book under the special prices for the "Florida Van Council" up until Feb 1. So don't dilly-dally or we're going to have fun without you! That's promise! The weather was 79 and sunny today, supposed to be nice for all of next week. Don't forget your swim costumes as there is also a heated pool and hot tub. The theme is Baseball for the Saturday night party. We hope you are prepared for the PJ party on Fridy night. See you there.

I just booked at the hotel. Yes, you need to say, "Florida Van Council." I used "Council of Councils" two weeks ago and they said they were full. They referred me to a non-Magnuson property in St. Pete that used Expedia and had a concellation charge. Took some doing to straighten that out but we did it.

See you there,

The wife and I've been here 2 days now and having a blast. Met up with my childhood friend last night for dinner which was awsome. Havent seen him in 39 years but he lives only 15 minutes from here. We had a lot of laughs and he is a very good musician. He played us some songs on his guitar right here in our room. It was awsome.
Today we cruised up the strip to Clearwater and all points in between. We hit the beach briefly,ate lunch,then cruised back south and went out to Fort Desoto for a mini tour/history lesson and some more beach chillin and wathced the sunset. The area around the fort is all undeveloped or park property so theres a lot of remote beach front spots which is kinda cool. Im not much for the big commercial areas so I enjoyed the somewhat privacy of it.
The only real downside so far is the hotel's ice machine on the first floor doesnt work at all so we have to go upstairs and all the way to the other end for ice. I can see the other ice machine runnin dry pretty quick once the hotel starts filling up.
Weather has been low 70's so far,very tolerable but not perfect beach weather either. It's supposed to be 79 by Thursday they say so that looks promising.
FYI,free wi-fi here at the hotel. Gotta run,I'm busy chillin ha-ha.

They know about it. They said maintenance is working on it but I dont think its been touched at all yet. Hopefully someone will get to it Monday.
Also,contrary to what I was told on the phone when I booked my room,I had no problem switching over to a non smoking 2 double bed room like I asked for in the first place. We also checked in early around 1:00PM.

"O Vanners" sign will be on the door! Most likely you will hear or smell me somewhere. See you there.

Anyone else in for the Pub Tour???

Ok I called them and heres the scoop. Reservations are preferred for a full load(16 people),they supply a driver. Note;info I received seems a little contradictory to the website(maybe a seasonal thing,I dunno)
Anyhow,the pub tour leaves from downtown St Pete at 5:30. This Fridays bike has 7 seats already filled. Individual seats are $25 or if you rent the whole bike its $190/hour,about $12 a person. Bike goes about 10 minutes between bars downtown. All bars give you happy hour pricing the whole night long with the wristband they give you,even after the tour is over.
I would think time on bike would be minimal since you will be off of it at the bars once you get there. Drinking on the bike IS NOT permitted "If I know about it" she said. In other words you would have to be sneaky about it.
Reservations are definitely a good idea since she would need to schedule extra drivers. Also consider the website says standard tip for driver would be $30 to $40 on top of rental price. Not bad for an hours work where all you do is steer and brake a bike while 16 people pedal it.

Several people arrived today,finally got to meet some folks at the tiki bar and "talk van". Nice weather today,we swam and hung poolside catching rays. It's supposed to be even better tomorrow. Headed out at 10AM for the museum tour of Joe Medonnia's collection. Hope I spelled that right or at least close. Not that anybody needs me for anything but if ya do Im in room 131 next to the ice machine.

From what I got from Dave yesterday the wifi sucks in the hotel. He had to tether to his phone to broadcast the Nats Board meeting. It was mostly muted due to topics discussed. There will be no broadcasts today. The meeting will be broadcast tomorrow.
Check the C of C website. It has the schedule on there.

Meetings are over now. If you listened to the broadcast please keep the 2013 Nats location off of the forums here.
It's so as not to take away anything from the 2012 Nationals.

Big thanks to Astro for doing the broadcast, he was solo this year with a crappy internet connection. We'll make sure he has plenty of help next year when the CofC is in Mansfield Mass.

The CofC was a really good time this year. the weather was good the band was good and the Vanners were terrific. The Vanners who attended represent some of the most serious (only when necessary), dedicated Vanners. I'm sure there are a lot of serious Vanners who could not attend also. The business end of Vanning The meetings to discuss ideas,scheduling and announcing eVANts,accepting Nats and CofC proposals, Etc. keeps Vanning rolling along. But, the get togethers, the parties, the conversations with Vanners from around the world mean just as much. Being Part of the Vanner family is something you can't quantify, it's a spirit you must experience. The state of Vanning is getting stronger We are who we are and what we are. Not everybody understands us. those who do are become hooked.

Thanks LMB I cant believe my son actually wants to go next year. I think it has something to do with Gillette Stadium being not too far away. Hopefully next year will be a better one expense wise. Would have loved to gone this year but with the funeral and graduation all in a years time it was just too much.

I want to thank all of Florida Van Council for a great time and a job very well done!! It was a very good time, the Hotel, the sailing trips, the partys, and most of all hanging out with our vanning family! It just doesn't get any better than that!!
The only problem with the whole experience was that it had to end!
See you all this summer. Hopefully more than a few times!

Yes Smitty it ended for me last night when I got home! Awesome weather, great friends, serious parties even up to and beyond the Super Bowl party. Great to see some ex New England Vans in the show as well. Next year it is our neck of the woods and I know New England will not let you all down. Yes it will be colder but just as fun!

Smitty, it looks like Starbuck is sleeping in the photo from what looks like a party at the hotel.

That was a party at our room, there was a lot of apple pie flowing among other cocktails. I think starbuck was helping us out by making sure the wall didn't fall on somebody! LOL
He did a fine job!!

We had a great time at C of C. Left Fish's house at 5:45PM on Tuesday & got to Joe Madonia's at 7:30 AM. He was at the hotel so we went to Bob Evans, had breakfast & the back to Joe's Museum - it was neat. Hung around there most of the day & got to hotel Wed about 3 PM.
Fish, Smitty & Brenda rode with us. Friday, Gloworm drove to the west coast of Florida to spend a couple of hours with Bugman's sister. The rest of the weekend was a "normal" C of C.
Party all week in Smitty, Brenda & Fish's room. We roomed with Damnit & Bubbles in a townhouse next to Nate & The Twins. Um as far as me, Friday night a bottle of wine, too many apple pies, golf card ride back to room, How did I get up the spiral stair case???, fell off the bed & got trapped between wall & bed. Don't remember any of it LOL. Needless to say, didn't drink Saturday. Left nice, warm 75 Florida 10:30 AM, got back to Fish's 3:30 AM to a "chilly" 10 degrees. Smitty had to scrape frost of his windshield. I miss Florida!!!

I owe the kind folks in the room next to us a bottle opener / cork screw. They loaned it to Sarah with the understanding we would give it back before the weekend ended. When I went over to return it on Sunday they had already left. (DOH!) Does anyone know who was in the room next to us?

DeeJaye that story of you falling and getting trapped made me laugh. I hope you were okay.

A drunken vanner getting wedged between the wall and bed? Priceless.


I was pretty messed up Friday night myself. I didn't get into bed until 2:30am...I went up the back steps though.

Every post I read about the CofC reminds me how much fun we had. I have noticed that there's a lot of people pointing fingers at those SOVC guys and blaming them because of how generous they were with their Apple Pie, (and Shine). I agree they had great Apple Pie and everyone was welcome to party with them. It was great to be roomed next to them. The Award for the best "Room Party" has got to go to be thiers. Keep up the good work!!!

Thanks Bob It was a pleasure to be roomed next to you guys too!
Stop by the SOVC site at the Nats and we'll do it all over again!
It depends I may get a wild hair and bring the BOW (Bar On Wheels) with us. It usually doesn't go past local truckins because it cuts my mileage in half. But since it is the 40th I might bring it. If not we'll still have a bunch of refreshments with us! LOL

Dam Smitty I missed the party! I thought I would have had a personal invite. But me getting stuck between my bed and the wall would not be a good thing!

Sorry you missed it Johnny. My Bad! It was pretty much an impromptu party whenever we were in the room, going on all weekend in the evenings and bloody marys in the morning. It always spilled out into the patio so people were just stopping by.
Like I told Bob stop by at the Nats and we'll do it again.

Oh crap I totally forgot that I left a styrofoam cooler with cokes,bottled water and some wine coolers in it next to Mr Bills drivers door of his van when I left at 6 AM to go to the airport. I figured he might want them instead of me just tossing them out. I don't know if he found them or if a local kid did and put on a buzz:-) If he was wondering,well the mystery is now solved.

I have a BOW also, it's called a Van. I'll have some Beverages for the Nats using Fla. OJ. I'm doing taste tests regularly (for Quality control, of course). Only the best for my Vanner friends.
