    On Friday November 6 after the Cobras raced at Sebring race track, everyone gathered again around 6pm at the Lakeland Holiday Inn parking lot, and having all the pizza and drinks they could handle, started the first day off with our annual meet n greet for the 2009 gathering of the Deep South Cobra Club.  After a good nights sleep we headed off to the Fantasy of Flight for their 3rd annual Roar N Soar gathering.     
    We had our normal car show but a 50/50 raffle was something new and a little different. The Fantasy of Flight who was one of many organizations collecting for Operation Healing Angel at Homefront Hugs, a program where they send hugs to our wounded and the heroic troops and those who care for them everyday.  When you have a great charity like “Hugs for Soldiers” it’s real easy to have a very successful 50/50 raffle, so I brought out my raffle tickets at $1.00 each, but for a mere $20.00 you could actually buy the length of a Cobra which turned out to be 81 tickets and my biggest seller.  In a very short time we sold off $434.00 in ticket sales with ½ going to “Hugs for Soldiers” and of course the other half going to our lucky winner.  At 3pm, the winning ticket picked went to Steve Naeger who decided that the entire sum of $434.00 should go to our “Hugs for Soldiers”, and so we had a photo session with those in charge at Fantasy of Flight and Steve Naeger to present the total sum to “Hugs for Soldiers”.  Steve Naeger is a member of our club, but also Florida’s only authorized Shelby and Superformance dealer.
    On Saturday evening we had our banquet dinner and club meeting right at the Holiday Inn facilities.  
    On Sunday November 8th after breakfast we left the Lakeland Holiday Inn at 10am for a spirited drive through the back roads and an estimated 90 mile 2 ½ hour trip to Emeril’s restaurant for lunch.  This was the last leg of our annual gathering and now we are all just waiting to hear about the date, time and locations for our 2010 annual gathering of the Deep South Cobra Club. http://www.dscc.us/
