6th Annual Tampa Kennedy Cruise - Nov 2023

Post by bd94s10 »

Hello,

Just a heads up our 6th Annual Tampa Kennedy Cruise will be this November on the 18th (Saturday before Thanksgiving).

I will be posting more information as we move closer to the cruise date. A couple of key reminders

-open to all makes/models - Lincolns lead the way in the cruise
-Meet at 10 am off Kennedy Blvd in Tampa, FL (rain or shine)
-Where we meet has a covered parking garage so if the weather is bad we will meet under the covered area to hang
-Generally speaking we leave the parking lot at 11:30 am ish to cruise to University of Tampa and then down Bayshore Blvd
-After the cruise we will have lunch plans already lined up for anyone who wants to join us
-Photos will be hash tagged with #TampaKennedyCruise for folks to go back and look at so don't forget to hashtag your pics on social media

More to come!

Getting some good buzz locally. Should be another great turnout. We are going to meet at the Dick's Sporting Goods in Westshore (Westshore Plaza) at 10 am ET on 11.18. We will leave for the cruise around 11:30-11:45 am. After the cruise we will get lunch for anyone who wants to join us. Hopefully the older guys that have been telling us for 6 years they are "working on their car" will actually get out and cruise with us. Its unfortunate all the younger guys are pegged for "ruining" Lincolns when I often see other people who leave their cars parked for 10+ years without putting miles on them. Surely that is not good. So we will see!

Posting an update. We will be meeting on 11.18.2023 off Kennedy Blvd. This is the 60th anniversary of JFK's visit to Tampa back on 11.18.1963.

Tampa Kennedy Cruise coming up on 11.18.1963 with his 60 years to the day that JFK was in Tampa, FL.

A couple of pics from 2022. Chris Dunn, Lincoln Land owner, comes out every year and so many others. We hope to see some of the LCOC members there in 2023!

Hello, we are less than 4 weeks away from our annual Tampa Kennedy Cruise which is on 11.18. We will meet at 10 am off Kennedy Blvd. in the Dick's Sporting Goods parking lot at Westshore Mall. We hope to see everyone there! We will also gather for lunch and put something together for the evening since we will have folks coming in from out of town.
