    Once in a while there is talk of a Florida RJers get-together. It seems like there is always a debate on where to meet, or have it wrapped around a local event.

    Here's our chance!

    The annual "Come Out With Pride" event will be held in Orlando on October 6, 7, 8. This is a great time with parties, a parade, speeches, food, drink and lots of booths to spend your money at. Proceeds from this event help out Orlando area LGBT charities and over 200,000 are expected to attend the Saturday festival at Lake Eola (downtown Orlando) and the accompanying parade the next day.

    There are lots of RJers in Central Florida, however, I would like to extend this possibility for all Sunshine State RJers to attend. It would be great to meet as many of you as possible that would come to Orlando for this.

    Talk it up. See if you can head over to Orlando for one or as many events as possible. The following link will provide more info as well as some hotel possibilites for the weekend.

    If you have any questions, e-mail me here. If I don't have a ready answer, I will find out more for you.

    Hope to see YOU there!

    Thank you for informing me of this. I didn't know about it, but someone messaged me earlier today and told me about it. Hope to meet some of you all there! icon_smile.gif

    turtleneckjock saidWell, the comment didn't exactly feel so great because I can do something about my body: I can lose weight, gain it back, work out, become ripped (over time), however, I cannot do anything about my facial features. This is who I am. I see myself in the mirror every day and sure, I would like to be a little more handsome, but I cannot do anything about that.....

    I sent him an e-mail afterwards letting him know I understand everyone has an opinion, however, I thought the comment was uncalled for. His response was basically an "F-U" one and eluded to his right to an opinion.

    I was fortunate to be nominated again for MOTD and currently sit in second place with 3 hours left to go in the voting...and he starts this thread???

    If you read his self-promoting thread, littered with glitter and all that and are turned off by it--and if you feel his comments are unjustified toward me, then please cast your vote for me for MOTD.

    Let's show Anduru that those of us considered ugly (but with a good, kind heart--unlike his) can win MOTD and maybe make him think a little.
    rofl okay I actually just read this whole comment and...
    First of all, I didn't even bother checking the MOTD votes because I couldn't care less who wins. This thread that I posted strictly as a joke was in no way connected to the current standings for MOTD.

    When I dubbed you "the ugliest winner of MOTD" I was mostly referring to your mustache, haircut, and glasses, all of which are seriously outdated but not unchangeable.

    Also, I backtracked on the messages that were sent and my message in response to yours was simply "I don't care.", unlike your message which alluded to me being a "stupid bastard" and "piece of shit". I would appreciate it if you would not exaggerate my words in an attempt to win sympathy votes in your favour.

    If you feel that in order to win you need to stir up some sort of phony controversy that rallies people against me, then I don't think that speaks very highly of you as the "nice guy" candidate.

    Thanks and I hope to meet you as well!!

    Just thinking here....if we have a good sized "committment list," we should at least find a meeting spot either at Lake Eola or somewhere in the area.

    Guys, if you can attend please DO e-mail me so I can have a list ready. If we have a good sized group, or just a few of us, we really should all meet up to introduce ourselves!

    We would go there just to meet you, and turtleneck jock, too. And C has said he'll pass on a SMART Ride meeting that weekend to do this. But my radiation cancer treatments will limit our time there, I gotta do one that Friday, and resume Monday. But we wanna do it!

    Just remember, we're really old guys, not pretty, and I hope you'll all make allowances for us. With that proviso, and with your permission, we're putting this on our calendar! YAY!

    Hey c'mon now. I would love seeing/meeting other real jockers. I live in the same city of many of these guys in Orlando, probably workout next to them....and don't even know them! A bonus to meet guys from this site who might be in town for this especially fun weekend. Please give me a heads up if you are heading this way.

    I've seen you at 24 (Hr Fitness) But I'm kinda shy to approach you and introduce myself. I'm gonna get the courage the next time I see you.icon_smile.gif
