Yep it should be a lot of fun!

It will piggyback for a couple of days onto the back of the Connections Conference in Clearwater. Connections runs May 2nd - May5th. Summerfest will be at our office on Sunday May 6th and Monday May 7th. Our office is about a 30 minute drive from Clearwater beach where Connections is held.

Hotel accommodations for Summerfest can be made at the St Petersburg Hilton in downtown St Petersburg. The St Petersburg Hilton is offering rates of $127 for prepaid rooms on their website... Coincidentally, that rate is lower than what they had been offering us for a "group rate" - so just go ahead and book your personal rooms through their website.

SUNDAY: On Sunday we'll be hanging out at Excellent Supply from 10:00 AM till whenever. For lunch we'll have burgers cooked on a grill. We'll have door prizes. Typical Summerfest carpet cleaner roundtable discussion. And later in the afternoon we'll have some entertainment - be prepared to laugh your heads off!

MONDAY: On Monday we are lining up some classes. I will be doing a presentation entitled... How to Flex Your Commercial Marketing Muscle. And there will be more classes that we'll be announcing in the upcoming days.

In addition to the normal informal Sumerfest hanging out, talking about carpet cleaning, etc. St Petersburg also has a beautiful downtown area along Tampa Bay. If any are interested, you may like to take an evening sailboat cruise on the waters of Tampa Bay (it's really beautiful) There are also great restaurants and bars in the downtown St Petersburg area (all within walking distance from the St Pete Hilton). Our office is about a 15 minute drive from the Hilton directly by way of the interstate.

It should be a lot of fun. So please try to make plans to join us!

That's the only one I'd recommend in the area for an RV.
The others that you mentioned are basically Mobile Home parks.

Or you might also consider Fort DeSoto park. It is a beautiful campground! But it requires reservations well in advance. It fills up year round. So I'd check soon if this one interests you.

I'm looking forward to seeing you at SummerFest happy.gif
