Thursday, June 29-Sunday, July 5th
3319 Sapp Avenue, Vernon, Florida (David’s House)

Things to keep in mind…

  • Just to clarify – when we say family, we don’t mean born as a Lazenby or born to a Lazenby. We mean everyone crazy enough to be associated with a Lazenby and you still want to hang out with us!!
  • Everybody gets input into the schedule but somebody has to get it started (so, Cindy has volunteered – sucker!). If you want to see something added for everyone to vote on, let her know. Suggestions are at the bottom of the event schedule until confirmed and added to the calendar.
  • This is a BYOH – bring your own home (or confirm with David he has a bed for you). So bring your RV, outdoor camping tent, reserve a hotel home, whatever. (As we get closer, we will post hotel options). Where you sleep is on you! At least bring a sleeping bag and pillow and David can store you in a closet.
  • This is a BYOF – bring your own food too. Unless otherwise noted on the schedule, don’t forage for food and drinks in David’s house. Plan to go grocery shopping for what you want. There is now a Dollar General right across the street so you can shop everyday for food if you want. Bring your ice chest or arrange ahead of time with David to keep items onsite.

Note: Addresses, hotel and RV stays, and times will be added later as we get closer to the reunion.
