Tour of Discovery Homecoming

From the Desk of Hans Meijer

Dear Friends of Rafael Giraldo:

We have received permission from the City of Weston and the Sheriff Department to welcome Rafael Giraldo into Weston. 

Rafael will end his Tour of Discovery – Ride for the Republic  www.tourofdiscovery.com on Sunday, August 15th at  12:30 p.m. in Weston, Florida.  However, we will be waiting for his arrival on State Road 84 behind Publix on Exit 22 at 12:00 p.m.  St. Rd. 84 starts parallel with St. Rd. 27.  In order to get there you need to go:

  1. From I-75 North go to Exit 23 and turn South on St. Rd. 27.  After about a mile or so turn left cross the median into St. Rd. 84 and we will wait there for his arrival as he comes South on St. Rd. 27 from Clewiston early Sunday morning.
  2. From St. Rd. 27 North go to where St. Rd. 84 starts just on your right before you reach the intersection to get on I-75.
  3. From I-75 South (coming from Naples on Alligator Alley) after the toll booth exit South of St. Rd. 27 and turn left into St. Rd. 84.

 Suggest you bring water and sun tan lotion.  Also make as many welcome signs for Rafael.

Once Rafael reaches us on St. Rd. 84 he will be escorted by the Weston police and all his friends and followers of the tour into Weston ending in the parking lot of the Sun Trust Bank next to Publix on Exit 22 from I-75.  We should reach this final point around 1:00 pm.

 Feel free to contact me for further instructions.

 Hans Meijer,
