2021 Mt Dora Come around Update

Posted: 12/25/2020
Update January 16:
Hello and welcome to all planning to attend the Mt Dora comearound. We are starting early planning for Mt Dora, and it is time to post a sign-up sheet to get things going.
As stated here before, the new dates are May 31st (arrival day) to June 7th (departure day) We can handle people only attending for a shorter time with advance notice. The location is the Southern Palms RV Resort in Eustis FL about 10 minutes from Mt Dora. FL.
Mt Dora is a quaint small town on a lake about 45 minutes north of Orlando FL. We will be doing things like going to a German Bakery, touring a local Museum, having a dinner in town, our own potluck dinner, a “white elephant” auction, evening “Happy Hours”, a couple of bike rides, and more. We will have bikes rides for cruisers as well as road bike riders. Mt Dora has a large bike festival each year and is known for some great roads to ride. Bring your bikes.
We will be in the Pines Section of Southern Palms which is reserved for “rallies”, as they call events there. Arrival is Monday with the opening event being a “Firstie” provided Dinner / Happy Hour / Welcome / and Meet and Greet at 1600. You should plan to arrive in the afternoon if possible. A detailed POD will be published to participants as we get closer.
The phone number for Southern Palms is 352-357-8882. Michelle typically handles events like ours, but others there may take reservations. We have special rates. Some sites are 50 amp and some 30 amp, a few are pull throughs but most are back-in. We will be using all types. I believe all sites at our event will be priced the same.
It is too early to know what Covid restrictions may be in place in Florida at the time, but we are putting together contingencies for various situations. IF POSSIBLE PLEASE GET THE COVID VACCINE.
We have been in Mt Dora, staying at Southern Palms, while doing some early planning a month or so ago, and I see no reason we will not have a great event. Groups are having “rallies” there now.
Sign up on Facebook, and notify me of your planned attendance at dandsgange@comcast.net.
Site reservations are made individually by contacting Southern Palms. Thanks Dale and Su Gange.
