Good Day!  

I just received the following kosmail from our dear Vet Wife and she has asked that I pass it along to all the members of Dkos Florida.  A short diary is probably the best way to do this because it will show up in everyone's Stream.

Meetup.. It is on.

We cannot let a flu season get in our way.  I aleady have one surprise guest, if nothing happens coming in and I think we should stick to our orginial date. Changing it will just cause some to miss out...  Can you see that it is up on DKos Florida.  Meetup Feb 9th Ft. Cooper... Inverness Florida...

For those of you just reading this for the first time, Vet Wife has organized a meet up for those of us in the Dkos Florida group and anyone else who is interested in attending.  It is scheduled for Fort Cooper State Park near Inverness, Florida on Saturday, February 9.  The cost to access the park is $3 per car.  We will have use of the meeting room at the park which has a kitchen. We are planning on trying to eat around 1 PM and are encouraging people to bring a covered dish or other needed supplies.  

Please contact Vet Wife to RSVP and coordinate food, etc.  Also if you wish to help defray the cost of rental of the meeting space (approx. $100) please let her know.  

The tentative list of Florida kossacks attending is currently around 18 plus one surprise guest, but we would love to see and meet even more of you.  Hope to see you there.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

    Bread probably and maybe something else. I need to discuss this with Caedy and decide. Also I'm on the list, but Caedy isn't. She'll be coming with me and possibly the daughter as well. I'm not sure if we'll be down here near Orlando or up in North Florida yet. We have the application coming from the house we're trying to rent, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.

    Have a grandma (me) baby shower planned that evening so I'll have to see if possible. I'm a first time grandmother soon but my son is in MA, so this is a family thing here. Will think about it.

    I've never been able to attend any meetings so this would be wonderful! Do you have a time frame for when people plan to be there?

    Guess there is no way to message all the FL Kossacks?

      It depends on how far you must travel.  Vet Wife has said that she would like for us to eat around 1 pm so that those of us who are trying to do it as a day trip would be able to get home at a reasonable hour.

      If you are a member of Dkos Florida, we will try to ensure all future diaries are published through Dkos Florida and therefore will show up in your Stream.  Also, keep your eye on the New Day series which is published every mid to late morning and now lists all the meet ups for various city, regional and state Dkos groups.  We are now listed there and Vet Wife has created a very nice logo for Dkos Florida. Check it out.

      If you think you can come, contact Vet Wife via kosmail to coordinate.  I hope you are able to work out your schedule so that you might be able to join us!  We would love to meet you!

    there are reasonable motels around and no reservations required not to mention many of us can go to Stumpknockers or other places in the evening if desired.
     I want to have a great meetup and we are the sane bunch in Florida.  We have an example to set...Everyone thinks Florida is nuts and Scott is but we have to show our blues.  Oh by the way..Orange and Blue is perfect for our colors.   Gator colors but the Great orange satan in a blue state is so us !!!!!
