George, I apologize for not getting back to you and the club. Life has been crazy with traveling for golf. I completely understand your desire to move on. I will leave First Coast Smarties as a possible club, but will try to follow your club when I can. One of my biggest problems has been voiced over and over and I hope with you doing a club that has several different makes you won't run into the same problem. It is very disheartening to have event after event and the majority of the participants come from out of the area. Then, it is also disheartening to have events and only have one or two cars show up. I'm hoping the new Smart will spark a new interest in clubs.

I guess we can now say RIP First Coast Smarties.  Our leader has not been logged on in eight months on this site and over seven months on the local Meet Up site.  I tried to keep the Meet Up site going, but I was the only one logging on and I could not justify spending $140,00 a year to beat a dead horse.

So, I guess this is good bye for me on First Coast Smarties.  I do plan to start a new club for modern micro minis, like smart, Fiat, and IQ, plus whatever else comes along.

It has been fun, but it's time to call it a day.  Good bye everyone.

Micanopy went very well considering it started out with torrential rains! By the time we got there the rains had cleared up and we had a wonderful day.

After 15 years, the Krystal Cruise In has been moved to Hardee's on Merrill Rd.  It is east of Krystal about one mile on the left just past 9A.  It is still on the first Saturday evening of the month.  There is plenty of parking and even some shade trees to park under.

We missed everyone at the KMart cruise in. We will be participating in the River City Market Place Cruise In on the 21st and the Main Street Cruise In on the 28th. I'll be posting details later.

Cruise in this Saturday, July 6 at 4pm at the Krystal on Merrill Rd.  I will arrive early and hold as many spots as possible.  Don't forget your lawn chair and I am looking forward to a big turnout.

Krystal Cruise-In on Saturday, June 1st.  Let's meet at the Krystal on Merrill Rd at 4pm and park together.  I will get there a bit early and hold as many spaces as I can.  Don't forget your lawn chair and let's plan to make a good club showing.

I have noticed a lot more Smarts rolling around Jacksonville. I sure hope we can get them in the club.
