    I heard it is MUCH better than, sniff, :ermm: Eggtoberfest, sniff, sniff. :( Just kidding :silly: We can't make it to Egtoberfest, So I am holding out for Ocala! Work sucks! LOL If you are any where near where any fest is going on try to make them. We did the New England one in June and had a blast cooking, eating and meeting lots of great people!
  • You really need to say that to DatilpepperBBQ. :woohoo:

    The Florida Eggfest is going to be March 20 and 21, 2009. We have a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn Express at Silver Springs. Here's the information, so you can get your room reservations.

    The Holiday Inn Express at Silver Springs is less than a mile from the entrance to the park and is the same place we had rooms booked last year.

    All of the rooms come with the following amenities:

    > 32" Flat Screen TV with cable & HBO
    > Complimentary High Speed Internet Access
    > In room coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave
    > Hair dryer, iron, and ironing board
    > 100% non-smoking and pet-free

    The suites also have a "small wet bar/sink".

    There is a complimentary breakfast, a Business Center, and a Fitness Center & pool.

    I've negotiated a group rate of $109/night for the "regular" rooms and $119/night for the "suites". There are 20 rooms blocked. If you call the hotel directly at 352-304-6111 to make your reservation, mention you are part of the "Florida Eggfest" or mention the group code EGG if calling the central reservations at 1-800-HOLIDAY.

    See you there!

    Glad you'll be able to make it this year...!
  • Ocala is a great time, and Tonya and Larry work very hard to put on a great fest. Make sure you book a room fast. Or if you camp book a campsite. Lots of great Egg Heads and you might even meet a Yankee or two. I know one wheres a red hat sometimes. March here most of the time is great weather. Looking forward in meeting you.
