Event Description

Hey everyone, we have a new place to show off our cars. First Coast Smarties member, Richard Baker has brought it to my attention that the town of Wellborn Fl. is having their 19th Annual Blueberry Festival. Now before you start screaming foul because it is a long drive and you would have to get up too early, here are a couple of ways to help you out: Vicky and I are willing to open our house up to people making the trip to Jacksonville the night before. We don't have a lot of room, but we don't mind people crashing here so they have a shorter drive in the morning. If Nancy comes, she has her own room. :-) Tampa people will most likely be going up I-75, so we will most likely meet them in Wellborn. Another alternative would be to go to the festival on Friday and spend the night in Wellborn. Let me know when you RSVP that you plan to stay in Wellborn and I can contact a hotel and see if they will give us a group rate. We will be leaving  from Cracker Barrel at 502 Chaffee Point Blvd. Jacksonville at 7AM. We can get something to eat and then cruise on to Wellborn.
