smart Event Recap and Reviews

I created this group for a place for fellow members to post a blog after an event to share what took place.

Better late than never.

Loretta took spice and I took Anna's Tink to Tavares Florida to participate in the towns annual July 4th Parade and Fireworks. It was a sunny (read that as Hot) day, but that didn't slow us down or dampen our spirit. We traveled the 10 block loop with the crowd waving the Flag and we waved back. I had no clue how much fun that would be. Much more fun than the normal greet, eat and run type events of the past. We did learn a few things though. Bring a cooler with Ice and water, folding chairs and even a popup shade if possible.


After the parade most of the 13 cars headed off on their own. About five cars went down to Wooten Park by Lake Dora to get some shade, a cool drink and socialize a bit. Then Loretta and I went to the 'dock' with Robert Barr, who came up from Sarasota with his Wife and their Dog 'Puck' (named after the Puck in Shakespeare) we were all 'blown away' with how long and good the show was for a small town. We could see the other Fireworks from all the other towns around the lake as well. Robert and family stayed over in Tavares and We took Tink and spice back to DeLand.

I will be there next year if we get the chance. Maybe we'll find another parade to join in the Jacksonville area in the meantime.


Overall on the score of 1 to 10... I'll give it a eight and a half. Could have been a 10 if I'd been more prepared (a 10 for the fireworks and parade).

I'm posting GetSmart28277's recap of the First Coast Smarties Mayport Ferry Event in Jax FLA to get this party started.

10/15/10 to 10/16/10 From late Friday afternoon arrival to now, this weekend has been great. I was the guest at Marvin's place with awesome southern hospitality from Marvin and Vicki for Friday and Saturday night.

Started with dinner Friday night at Longhorns
visiting with a few of the other local smart owners at Marvin's until crashing; playing with the RC's in Marvin's living room and kitchen
up for Coffee and homemade pancakes
then off to the Jax smart center for car washes before the rest of today (7 of us were at the smart center)
then it was off to the Budweiser/Busch brewery, met up with the rest of the local members and Nancy (aka "Mary") from Charleston, SC (Marvin renamed her)
received a tour of the brewery with samplings at the end
THEN it was off to the Ferry ride with the smarts; for such a quick ride, we had a lot of fun.
THEN it was time to mingle more and eat at Singleton's Seafood restaurant
THEN we toured the city, stopped a few places, took pictures at the stops and ended our tour back at the smart center; we went in, had some soft drinks and planned for the Sunday morning.
Then 4 of us met up with some of the others at the Cruise-in in NE Jax.
(Forest, you are right, the RC smarts were fun to sneak out of the front of the smart at the show.)

As the day wound down, from after lunch to the very end, the 11 smarts slowly broke off and went their merry ways ending up with me and Marvin having dinner and then back to his house to meet up with his wife after her afternoon errands.

Marvin has already posted his pics. Enjoy!
...wish you all were here. Lots of smile, silliness, and smarting all day with over 170 miles driven today alone around Jacksonville.
I am heading back to Charlotte sometime today. Thank you all for the great memories. I hope to see you all at the Anniversary event in February and the Dragon next September!
