I was really excited when I saw that there were 34 members in the Jax club. I was even more excited when I saw that they did something monthly on Saturday. I became totally bummed when I saw the club hadn't done anything since last year. I would like to energize the club and get the smarties out for all to see. I am having a blast right now with mine. I was putting gas in it and this lady started a conversation with me about how small it was, so I told her to go sit in it. She was totally amazed! It would be fun to get a few of us together to just cruise Sonic one of these nights, or anywhere people might be.

Another cruise-in. As usual, we enjoyed representing the First Coast Smarties today. The Chevelle Club was very nice to us. They gave us a coupon for a free ice-cream cone and one for a free hamburger and fries at Five Guys. This cruise-in even had free trophies for three different cars. We didn't win one, but we had fun anyway.

Marvin, I feel your pain. Even though the JaxSmarts have a susai role call of 36 (now with yourself and Mike J) the members very rarely use susai (much like the vast majority of new susai members) or respond to RSVPs or emails. We definitely have a communication and attendance problem. Your willingness to help get the Jacksonville smarties back on the road is just the kind of help and enthusiasm we need. So now we can get this party started!

ps. We got spice in August '09.

Looks good George. I'm in Mississippi right now. Took my smartie with me. I will be back in Florida on Sunday.

I just got a call from Chris Conover with the Chevelle club. The 2nd Sun. cruise at Johnny Angel's has been cancelled. He will let me know the location he has replaced it with in a couple of days.

1st Sat. Krystal, Merrill Rd.
2nd Sat. Food Lion, St. Rd. 13 just south of Julington Creel
3rd Sat. River City Market Place just off I-95 Airport exit
4th Sat. K Mart Normandy Blvd just west of I-295
1st Sun(1-3pm) Tropical Smoothie Baymeadows and Phillips Highway

I plan to go to the dealer this week and see if they will give me a list of recent customers I can contact to promote the smart club to. I really hope this local club can get active once again, George.

HEy George, I got to Merrill Rd. about 5:30 and their were quite a few cars there...no SMARTS. It was pretty cool the way everyone turned and looked at me when I drove up in Salma. Anyway, I would love to get that schedule from you so that we can get together soon with a bunch of others.

Marvin, I drove by the Krystal on Merrill at about 4pm on the way home from Costco. There were already several cars there, but it was starting to rain. If there had been no rain, I was going to go home and get my car and return by 5pm. With the weather, I decided to stay home. Get in touch with me, and I will give you the listings for all the local cruise-in around town. Hope to meet you at a car event soon, George.

George, I have a golf tournament tomorrow. I tee off at 10:18, so I should be finished in plenty of time to make it. Love those special interest cars you've got. I was just informed that I have to babysit tomorrow, but I should be able to get there anyway.

Marvin, I am ready to do some activities with my smart. I hae been a member of the Jax club for a little over a year. The last activity I remember was last November. We met at the Sonic near Regency Square. I attend local cruise-ins most every Saturday night. I have tried to get the Jax smarts to participate, but there was never much interest. I have taken my Brabus to the Cars and Coffee meets on the second Saturday morning of the month and got lots of interest. I usually take one of my other special interest cars to the cruise-ins, but would love to see a group of smarts parked together. Tomorrow's cruise-in will be at the Krystal on Merrill Rd. in front of Food Lion from 5-9pm. If anyone wants to bring a smart, I will bring mine. Otherwise look for me in a red Z06, blue T-Bucket, or black three wheel Morgan type car.
