The 2019 GTG was a small but fun one. We've seen in the past that attendance can vary greatly from year to year so I don't give up. The dates for 2020 are either December 4-5-6, or December 11-12-13. Any input regarding these 2 weekends?

With the way this crazy year went I screwed up and never got around to setting up this years GTG, and Hillsborough is booked solid. There are still quite a few sites available at Lake Manatee State Park. It's a bit more rustic but we stay there a lot. The sites are separated by empty spaces and are pretty large. I'm looking at sites 55 56 57 etc. The park is about 40 miles south of Hillsborough about 8 miles off 75. If anyone is interested I'll post reservation info. See above post for dates, but I'm leaning toward 11 12 13.

I was talking to the reservation manager at one of our local campgrounds and what they are seeing is people book sites months ahead, and then cancel at the last minute if they change their mind. The results, according to the person I talk to, is that they are never full, except for some weekends, especially holidays. If it were me, since I'm not very nice, I'd have a cancellation policy that would make it costly to do that.

Florida uses Reserve America, and cancellations cost more than most folks want to throw away. There are always empty sites even when they say they are sold out, and drive ups are normally available, but with the present circumstances I wouldn't count on that.

Update, I just checked the schedule for Bradenton Dragway and the Snowbirds are the weekend of Dec 4-6 so that's when we'll be at Lake Manatee, which is about a mile from the track.

If we were closer, we'd be there for sure. We would just wait until a week or so before the event and get our site. Little bit harder when you have to drive 600 miles. Oh, wait--we don't even have a motor home ROTFLMAO

FYI I got a call from Bill Moolenar in Florida. He will be at Lake Manatee for the weekend. He has a site reserved, not sure which one.

Liz and I will still be in Michigan on that weekend. It will be a good time I am sure, but we will not be in Florida for another wek or so.
