Ian, we would love to have you join us.
In previous years some of the swap attendees have made a weekend of it with an overnight stay.
The greater Ft.Lauderdale area has lots to do, many great restaurants, and famous Las Olas which has sidewalk cafe's, boutiques, art galleries, trees shading over the entire street, charming old fashioned streetlights, and lots of international people watching. Then just drive a mile further east and there's the Atlantic. We like to go on a Friday evening, grab a frozen margarita, and feel the ocean breezes.
We saw Nick Nolte on Las Olas last year.
Then 1 hour or so further south is the Redland Fruit and Spice Park, with hundreds of types of Mangoes, Mamey, Breadfruit, jackfruit that grow to 100lbs,etc.

Marsha
