For those of you who were not able to make it to this year's Midwest smart Car Rally, held at the Wisconsin Dells, I have posted many pictures here.

For the owners of the 102 smart cars that WERE able to attend, I'm sure you'll join me in thanking all those who made it possible. Jeff Edmondson, in paricular, came up with the idea...but I know he had some very capable people helping him. I thank them all, too.

Here's hoping we can do it again next year!

Again! Thanks again for everything Jeff, and supporting members who made this happen! I can't wait to see what next year will hold!

What an excellent event! Can't say enough about Jeff and everyone else who helped put this together, not to mention everyone who participated. Not sure who all I got to meet but did manage to put some names with faces - hope to see you all at future events. And a big thanks to Dave Schembri and his wife for being part of this and making the effort to answer all the questions, check out the cars and listen to us owners. All that and a new cruise control to boot - life is good!

Mike and daughter Kathy the class of 09(KATSMRT) had a great time. Got Dave to autograph her Yellow Smart, Dave and his wife were very nice to meet and talk with. We really enjoyed meeting many new smart freinds. Jeff did an excellent job, you would've thought this was his 10th rally. Can't wait for next year.

Kudos to Jeff! We had a great time and look forward to the next rally! Great photos, Pete, and we look forward to the official video. Once I get my film developed (yes, I still use a 35mm film camera), I'll try to figure out how to post mine, too! "Bunni"

Many thanks to Jeff and all who helped organize this great event. The group meal, state park gathering, ferry ride, and smart road tour made for a varied and enjoyable weekend. We had a wonderful time and it was fun to meet so many new 'smarties'. I can't wait to see the official video.

Ditto to all the comments below. Great time, so nice to meet so many folks. Thanks for the work putting it together!

What a great weekend!!! I enjoyed meeting all the people that I only knew a name. My thanks for the 'Flames' to put on my car to keep the fire gods at bay. Meeting Dave Schembri was a high point for me.

I do have about 25 buttons and about 70 stickers left over, so anyone interested in one, let me know (PM) I am thinking $1.50 each to cover the button / sticker cost and postage. These cost me about $1 each to have them made so I am only trying to recoup my investment and postage has gone up as you know...

Again, Great job Jefferios and all! Might be tough to top for next year...

Wonderful meeting so many of you - sorry I didn't get around to everybody. I had a fantastic time - thanks Jeff, Peter and Ingrid and Scott and Patty. All your hard work paid off and it was a great weekend. The chat with Dave Schembri was excellent. He is such an energetic, positive, down to earth, friendly guy. I think he learned something from us too. Over all a win-win day!
