Looking forward to this show. I feel like anywhere that has a bunch of old busses, cold draft beer and mid-November in FL really canít be beat.

Tomasz Thu Aug 25, 2022 7:13 pm

Looking forward to it as well.

I spoke with someone today at Rare & Unique and was told they are having their Friday night party on November 11th.

Checking in for a Bulli Brigade 29 update.
T-Shirts have been delivered and this years art work turned out great!
The trophy team is finishing up final details for this years award ceremony. Oh!, we still have an unclaimed "Longest Distance" award from BB26 (Daytona Classic 24 weekend) I'll bring it with.
Quaker Steak and Lube called yesterday and they are excited to have us back. I was notified a portion of the stage area/Vending area will not be available due to a tent they have set up but there will still be ample room for slinging parts.
Fort De Soto is and has been fully operational even after hurricane Ian and I'm looking forward to a few days of camping waterfront!
Host Hotel (La Quinta) is also looking forward to having us back. Jeff Baker (Manager) has always been bent over backwards to make sure our stay is enjoyable and loves seeing our busses invade each year.
Next Year is our 30th!!! BULLI BRIGADE XXX flyers will be in hand with some preliminary details of what's ahead!
Safe travels, RK

Are a lot of you folks still planning on making the drive for this one with the impending tropical storm? Looks like it will be long gone for Saturday, weighing my options for the Friday night get together. This will be my first year, and I don't really want to miss it. I assume the Rare and Unique get together is what I was told is held at Blast Services? Is that correct?

Worth noting the weather Saturday should be spot on... :lol: :lol: :lol:


rkennedy5 Tue Nov 08, 2022 7:49 am

Weather is looking amazing for Saturday. Friday evening events are indoors but still hoping forecast continues to improve. For clarification on Friday evening, The Slam (Rare & Unique) is held in Sarasota at 2311 Whitefield Ind Way Sarasota, Fl 34243, contract Brian or Kip for more info. 941-752-9592. Blast Services Friday evening gathering is 2 miles from the actual show location in Clearwater. -RK

They posted yesterday on Facebook R&U canceled the Friday party.

Friday, Saturday, & Sunday forecast is looking stellar in the Clearwater/Tampa area. I confirmed Friday evening gathering at Blast Services near show venue is ON. R & U however has canceled. Host hotel is currently sold out but manager encouraged to always check for last minute availability if anyone needs a room or check with one of the other nearby hotels. Safe travels & looking forward to another shared Veterans Day Weekend! Thank you to all who served. -RK
