2018 - 10 years of smart in the USA

Just wanted to throw this out and get some feedback. As of January, 2018, smart will have 10 years in the US. Seems like it would be appropriate to celebrate that with some sort of event (or series of events), involving smart USA as well as dealerships and owners. The next Nationals is not due until 2019 but it should be possible to come up with something appropriate given the time remaining.

Any thoughts/recommendations/WAGs?

How about a re-visit to Deadwood,SD or Durango, Colo.

If SmartUSA would offer to become a sponsor, we may be able to get Jimmy to do a Jam on the Dam III & combine that with a 10 years in the US anniversary for smart.

I'm thinking multiple events around the country.

That would certainly be more feasible for many more smart enthusiasts.

The Geographic Center of the United States (contiguous 48) is located about two miles northwest of Lebanon, Kansas. Take US Highway 281 north 1 mile, and turn west one mile on K-191 to the maker that has been erected at the end of the paved road.

Pretty much why the first smart Nationals was held in KC. However, we've learned the hard way that events in single locations result in lower overall participation.

And that right there is the core of the problem.... I wouldn't hold my breath on that one...

Have there been any further discussions about 10 yr anniversary events? Since Mercedes is discontinuing the gasoline Smart 4-2's I'm wondering if they would sponsor anything.
