Hitting the road next Monday for St. Louis and points west.  See you in Denver on Wednesday the 10th!

Registration has been extended until June 23!  However, the group rate for the Westin ends on June 17.  Better get your reservations in now, before it is too late.  During registration at the event we cannot accept registration payment.  This is due to contractual arrangements with the hotel that require us to have final banquet numbers and payment before the convention starts.  So don't wait, go to and get registered!  You DON'T want to miss this event!

Registration for the Nationals closes June 17th!  If you plan on coming, please register ASAP.  If you are going to be part of the St. Louis caravan, you need to book your room(s) ASAP also as the Salina Days Inn may not be able to hold them much longer.

Can't say for sure, the last I heard was mid June, with the official dog and pony show at the end of June.

Russ, I don't see any cars on their car2go app yet (the closest ones showing in Austin and San Diego). Have you heard when their true "on line" date is?

FYI, for those that had not heard, Car2Go is now in Denver.  Now you have a way to attend the event, and get to drive a smart car as well, without having to take your own car for a extended drive.  Yes, it is not economical to rent one for the entire period, but it is for some of the drives, or the fun-can-a.

Just a reminder for those coming in to stay in St.Louis for the caravan. You have until June 17th (less than 2 weeks!!!) to make reservations at the La Quinta in Maryland Hgts. and until July 1st in Salina, KS before they return the rooms to inventory for the general public. 

If you are not on the list in my last post
, please e-mail at to let me know if you're driving with us to get an accurate count on people and cars (even if you are not staying at the hotels).

I'm hoping that the process of getting Car2Go is faster than Jose Cornejo indicated. I know it takes time to get anything through even the city government process.

It would be great if it was up and running for those that don't have time to drive to Denver or feel it is too long of a drive.

I'll still be here after the Nationals are over :) (I hope) ... It's been years since they got started in other cities in the US, so I can wait a few more months. I had to wait almost ten years to be able to buy a smart in the US. We've come a long way.

"After reviewing input from the public, Jose Cornejo, Public Works director, is expected to approve the car-sharing rules and regulations in the next couple of months."  They'll be lucky to get Car2Go ready by the Nationals, which is unfortunate.
