I am a new guy here from Tampa, can I join or there any eligibility criteria to be part of meet up?
Post an intro thread, and hang around a while. There are meetups in Tampa regularly, so you may want to hang around here a bit and get some rep points built up before you'd add value to a meetup like this. As you literally just joined, give it some time so people can find out more of what you are about before they take it from online to a real world meetup.

Thanks, that helps.

Off course I plan to post in introduction forum, but first I am completing the book (I am on 33/49 track on Audible as I write this). I have also read tonnes of notables/gold and most importantly execution threads. (I find execution threads most fascinating). I hope to complete the book by this weekend and then post in introduction.

Thanks again for taking time and responding in detail to my query

Alright Tampa, it’s been too long since we’ve had a big meetup. Those of you who went to the Summit, some of that steam is wearing off.

Let’s get together and see what progress we’ve made.

Here are some potential dates. It gives y’all a month to figure out if you’re coming.

Friday June 1st
Friday June 8th

Meetup ideas: Top Golf, Davidoff cigar lounge, Kona grill has a good patio.

Davidoff is amazing. I would not do the Top Golf. Do DavidOff and then anyone that wants to could go to Kona Grill later. I'd probably join at least for a cigar. Smoked one of the New Florida State Grown (FSG) Robustos a few days ago and it was awesome.

Davidoff and Kona are a good mix. Either food/drinks first followed by cigar, or cigar first, followed by food/drinks.

Where does one get a FSG cigar? I’m curious to try this now.

I’ll have to check those out. Thanks for the recommendation.

Now, is 11:30 too early for a Scotch and cigar?
Want to meet me at the sponge docks for a cigar at 1PM?

I’m working up in Wesley Chapel at the moment. Won’t be back on that side if the Bay until 4ish. If you’re still working that late on a Friday I’m game for a cigar.

Pass but we'll do it next time. You need to dump your day job. I might literally be on the bay by the time your salt mine fog horn whistle blows. :)

Damn, totally could've show up unannounced and freak ya both out.

It's good being down here :)

Edit: Related to the meetup...
Voting for Davidoff & Kona Grill, June 1st. Sounds like a good combo.

I'm going to be out of state for a few weeks around the beginning of June. If I haven't left yet I'll be there.

I'll be up in NY in June.

I'll probably head out to Tampa in the fall.

Thanks for the invite. I'll keep you guys updated the next time I'm out there.

May I suggest meeting at one of the downtown hotels? We can lounge in the back with a great view of the marina outdoors, and easily move inside if the weather is uncooperative. Food options are also around.

I personally hate the smell of cigar smoke, but would endure it just to hang out, but wanted to throw the option out there.

  • ex: Marriott Waterside by the convention center

In the same boat as you about Cigar Smoke, and second your option. Parking garages are close by as well so logistics doesn't look like a problem. If anyone wanted a Cigar, we'd bring it outside. On top of that, a view of the Bay!

Any idea if there's any food/drink options on the ground level itself?
That way if we got hungry, we wouldn't have to leave. I'm thinking along the lines of what it was like at the Summit (Blue Coyote at Talking Stick)

I would love to meet with everyone for topgolf or a cigar.

June 8th preferably, but I could try to make June 1st happen as well.

Do we have enough people down for this?

Of course, come out with us. I'm from Orlando as well.

If everyone’s against cigars, we can do something else. @Ronak my only worry about Marriot waterside is that Friday night + downtown sounds crazy busy.

Another suggestion is Kona over on Boyscout, next to Davidoff. They have a real nice patio and anyone who wants cigars can wander over to Davidoff afterwards.

I’m leaning toward June 1 too.

@Solrac youre definitely welcome. @Duane comes over from Orlando as well.

Kona sounds good too, but I'm 50/50 on availability for Jun 1/8.

+1 for Kona / Davidoff then, June 1st as it seems it's working for everyone.
Logistics make more sense too. Easier Parking, and optional Cigar.

Everyone still good for this? It's one week from today if so.

Barring any extenuating circumstances I’ll be there as well. Going to try and convince the wife to tag along as well.

I'll be there. Wondering if I can bring a +1?
Definitely. Just make sure if they’re going to participate they’re willing to actually take action.
