The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

Snickersmom, I am going to Tampa on December 9th to meet up with these ladies. I already met SpecialK and Pat01 when they drove all the way from Tampa to Daytona Beach to spend a day with other BCo ladies. If your calendar allows we can ride together. Mysunshine also lives in TV but doesn't think she will make it to Tampa. I plan to leave TV about 10 and need to be back in TV by 6. Let me know when you are able.

Looking forward to seeing everyone, and FYI our front gate has now been repaired and is working, so you will need the gate code unless you can follow someone else in. For anyone I PM'ed my address to I should have included the code - just pull into the lane with the keypad. If anyone needs it I will PM it to you!

I was so looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow, however our family Christmas gathering was changed to my house and I've got too much to do with only two weekends before they get here. Husband also has to have a second surgery next week to remove a plate in his hand that's bothering him, from a broken hand repair surgery earlier this year,so he'll be quite useless next weekend. So that leaves this weekend to get the bulk of everything done:/ Anyway, I look forward to meeting everyone at a future get together!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thanks to all of the Tampa area BCO sisters for the absolutely wonderful afternoon!! I can't tell you how much I loved meeting each and everyone of you and beginning to get to know you all. Thanks especially to Phyllis for making me go with her, to SpecialK for the wonderful lunch, and to all of you for making me feel like I'm not alone in this journey!

I'm already looking forward to our next get-together!

Hi, this is the link for the exercise thread if you need motivation mixing with a great group of ladies. Head on over and introduce yourselves. Exercise is the primary way to stave off recurrence so start small and work your way up.
