    Hi all,

    I know this is late notice, but could be fun. I have a friend who had an idea to do "First Saturday" parties in a beach location in the area, and get together with friends on a regular basis. Cool idea, but his follow through isn't there, so I'm going to try to take over and see what we can do.

    I have invited a few folks I know since moving down here last year and want to open it up to Gator Fans and their friends in the area. Good chance for us to meet too!

    We are shooting for Fort Desoto East Beach on Saturday. Probably run from noon until sunset with people coming in and out. There is a good beach area, picnic tables barbecue grills.

    If you plan to come, please check this open Evite, add your name to the list and what you plan to bring. If you want to be included in the future, but can't make it this week, still add your name and will use this Evite to do future ones.

    My first go round with Evite, so I think you can add yourself, but if not, PM me with your name and phone number or email and I will add you.

    Invitations, Free eCards and Party Planning Ideas from Evite

    Hey, Oak!

    I won't be able to make the next 2 or 3.. I'm having ankle and foot surgery in a few weeks, ( my ankle is busted right now) I'm sure you'll be giving us updates, so once I'm up and around, I'll be in.

    Hey all. We do plan to keep this going. I have some friends who came, @anstrogator was the only GC person there. Aaron is a cool guy - glad I got the chance to meet him and hope to meet some more of you in future events.

    I did have a request from some folks to do something a little further north next time.... maybe Madeira Beach area.

    If anyone has a suggestion, let me know. Want a location with good parking, nice beach, and preferably where we can grill.

    Hey @OaktownGator, I didn't realize you moved to the "other" bay area. Those are my old stompin' grounds. Wish I was still around, as this sounds like a fun time. I love Ft. DeSoto park. Best of luck with the crew. Hope y'all have some good times.
