My wife and I had the pleasure of attending the Midwest Smart Car Rally at the Wisconsin Dell's this past weekend. Now first of all I would like to thank Jeff Edmondson and his team for the wonderful job that they did. We had never been to a car rally so we didn't know what to expect. And at our age I didn't think I would ever go to any rally. ( I was the one with the black Grumpy cap on) The whole weekend was definitely more than we ever expected. All the great new people we met and how well everything was organized. Since arriving home, we can't stop talking about it to our friends.

One of the many highlights of the trip was, we had received an e-mail saying that others would be meeting at Culver's in Madison, Wi.. We arrived at Culver's and there was no one. We were a little early so we waited. After about 20 minutes another Smart showed up. And the same color as ours. The people got out and came over to us and I mentioned to my wife that the guy looked familiar. We started talking and asked where they were from. Huntley, Ill.. Hay, so are we. But where in Huntley ? Sun City. Hay, so are we. But where in Sun City ? Neighborhood # 10. Hay, so are we.. It turn's out that we live 3 block's apart and both moved in just about 5 years ago and until now, never met each other.

I could go on and on but really I want to thank Jeff and crew and all the new people we met. Without everyone it would have been just another weekend but thanks to all, it was a special weekend. Thank You.
And Jeff, here's hoping you do another one next year.

It was great meeting you all! Just wish I took more pictures. Many thanks to who ever it was that was handing out the "actual size" stickers.

Great rally, good location and good turn out. It was great to see Dave Schembri take time out to come and talk formally and with some informally. We look forward to next year.

Jeff I noticed you said "See you at the next rally". You did not say next year. By chance do you have something in the works? Will there be one before next year?
