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.

I'm out on Oct 14-15 and 21-22, but can probably do most other weekends in Oct/Nov. Sept 30 is ok too.

I hope any of you who lost power have it back by now! Ours was off for less than a day, and only repair (fixed by me) was lanai screen partially popped out.

Most of the time on weekends I'm open. Oct 21 - 28 I'll be in NYC again. Back up speaker for a symposium at Hofstra University about the journey of Breast Cancer in terms of reconstruction. I was requested to do this by my PS office in NY. My friend that also goes up there is the primary speaker.

galsal - we selected a date but had to cancel for Hurricane Irma. We have not set a new one yet.

How do you all feel about a lunch before the end of the year, or should we wait until after the holidays? I know people get crazy busy and don't want to add if it complicates things, but am totally willing to have something at my house and I am flexible on dates/times if we can work something out. Otherwise I feel like January would be great and people might be more available. Or, we can do both, lol!

SpecialK -- I have some availability in December, but I don't know if it would be too hard for others. I would be good with either/or/both. My availability in Dec. is 12/2(day), 3, 9, & 10. January is a little harder for me to give dates as I will probably have to be in rehearsals for the musical at my college, but the dates/times and specific parts haven't been set yet. Usually, it is most Saturdays in the early/mid afternoon for the month, but Sundays are usually not involved.

I am also good with that date and would be happy to host a gathering at my home at noon on that day. I will update the header, and also text ones that don't check this thread as often! Yay!
