Fellow Skalleagues:

We had a fantastic evening at the brand new Aloft-Element Tampa Midtown this month.

The property is beautiful with some awesome features like their rooftop pool, restaurant, bar and meeting space. It is a great venue for any occasion. 

Special thanks to Jo Dee Colonius for making our visit so memorable. We really enjoyed the tours you and Nancy Jennings took our group on

The food and beverages were delicious. Presentation was spot on and the management and staff looked after our every need. Kudos to the Chef. 

Next month we will visit one of our favorite venues, Bahama Breeze, Tampa Airport where we will once again dress in our tackiest tourist outfits (if you dare) or best tropical attire. This is always a fun filled event with a laid back vibe.  Registration is open now so be sure to register.


We are still collecting raffle items for our upcoming meetings and we appreciate the generosity of all who have and continue to give. Mail any items to:
