37th Annual Winter Regional Meet January 21st - 24th, 2015
The Florida Chapter is happy to announce the change of location of our Winter Regional Event from Old Town, Kissimmee, Florida to a site in Lakeland, Florida. The move from Old Town was due to the loss of acreage adjoining Old Town Property that for many years was leased and Old Town lost their lease on this property. Without that property our event could not be housed in the remaining space at Old Town. Unfortunately the choice was to scramble to find a new location within a reasonable distance of Old Town or shut the event down and we chose to continue the event. Finding a location in the tourist district that is both affordable and has lots of green space is impossible and we had to reach out a little further to insure a long term solution and the survival of the event.
