Thinking of attending, if I can get away then. Are there any "preferred" motels in the area? Any suggestions?

Is the group planning on touring the historical and/or beach area? I haven't been there in about 20 yrs, so it would be fun for me.

Hey Lester, that would be cool if you could make it. I've never stayed at either one, but I've been referring people to the two hotels at the World Golf Village which is where the Caddyshack restaurant we're meeting at is located: the Sheraton and the Renaissance. If you go to the WGV website at http://www.wgv.com you should be able to find some info on both of them. The only other hotel in the immediate area that I'm aware of is on the SE corner of I-95 and Initernational Golf Parkway (the WGV is on the NW corner). Unfortunately I can't remember the name of it, Comfort Inn maybe :confused: But there are a bunch of hotels at St. Augustine Beach which is only about 10 miles away. I think all the major brands are there like Holiday Inn, etc...

As for the post-luncheon activities, that's still up in the air. I think I've learned of a good off-roading site within 10 miles of the WGV, but I need to make some phone calls to the State Water Management District to confirm that we can actually drive on it :p Unfortunately the Ocala Nat'l Forest is probably too far a drive. The other plan is to go to historic St. Augustine and/or South St. Augustine Beach (where they allow beach driving). Ideally we could do all three, off-roading for an hour at the TBA location, then drive over and see the sites and hit the beach.

Thanks GatorGreg for the reply. I just checked out the places you mentioned and they are all booked that weekend. I even checked out www.travelocity.com for St. Augustine and reservations are "slim pickings".

I for one would not be interested in the heavy duty off road activity. When will a decision be made on the other activities and how long do you think the activities will take?

Hmmm....I guess all the attendees of the 3rd Annual Big CR-V/MDX Scrub have filled up all the hotels, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the Daytona 500 on Feb. 17th :p Lester, there won't be any heavy-duty off-raoding, remember, the MDX is limited to "medium-duty" off-roading :D Well as of right now, I anticipate we will be done with the 'V/'X ogling, lunch, and prizes by roughly 1:00 and after that nothing is set in stone, everyone will be free to do whatever they want. However, it might be fun for the gruoup to convoy over together to the historic area and/or the beach. I wouldn't mind visiting the old Fort Montezuma or whatever it's called, and then heading over to the beach to test out VTM-4 in the sand for the rest of the afternoon. I will leave it up to the attendees. I'm still waiting for a call back from the State on the status of that potential off-roading area. It's only 10 miles from WGV, so if it turns out that we can drive on it, those who want to go off-roading can choose to do that while others either watch or go to the historic area. Then we could all meet up again at the beach at a predertermined time.
