It will be interesting in what you find Richard. That will sort of determine if we can hold the meet in the Keys after what they went through.

I plan on coming but $400/night is too much.

Check out the Best Western Hibiscus, rooms start at $150/night. We stayed there a few years ago, it's in a pretty good location and the rooms were huge. Swimming pool in the center, rooms all around, it's an older place but we liked it.

I thought it was in Marathon.
You can find rooms for less than 200 there. Last time, I took my 5th wheel and was camping waterfront for about $ 20.00. :D :D

I am going down for the first week of April. Will check into the status. Will really help if we had a clue on the potential head count, rooms needed...

I don't think it's decided yet, but last time I had the most fun at Key West 8)

We drove to Key West. Didn't stay there cause we're cheap.
