John and all...

This confirms our announcement last night at the 2020 Winter Tour closing banquet. Next year (2021) we'll be going back to the Mission Inn in Howey-in-the-Hills, FL:  Their reservation phone number: 800-874-9053

We recommend that people plan to arrive on Saturday, March 6th. Touring routes will be offered for March 7-11. Plan on departing March 12th. The room rates include their incredible breakfast! The Deluxe rooms (100 are available) will cost $139 per night and the Club Suites will cost $159 per night. Please DO NOT book a room unless you are quite certain you will come!

There is RV camping nearby (3 miles). We recommend:

More details will follow regarding the daily plans and overall cost for registration.

We look forward to welcoming you once again to this beautiful resort!

​Hi all...two things:

# 1 As of March 18th, we have 50 rooms booked (98 people) at the Mission Inn. That is AMAZING! Anne Marie, the reservations lady, LOVES our enthusiasm at the same time that they are receiving lots of cancellation calls due to the virus.  

# 2 Thanks for the heads up from Jon G. For the Motorhome people: Fisherman's Cove will not accept reservations this far in advance. After speaking with them yesterday, the recommendation is to call AFTER May 1st. There are other options, but all are much less convenient ( 8-9 miles away): Rolling Ridge RV, 231-883-4963, Bee's RV, 352-429-2116 and Clerbrook Golf and RV, 352-394-5513.

Thank you again for making 2020 a fun time, and continuing to support our youth activities.

We hope everyone got home safely! Stay healthy and come back next year!
