2012/2013 smart Nationals survey

You may have seen this survey mentioned on the sticky at the top of the page; if you've seen it what do you think about the options offered? How about the locations? The event in Kansas City went well because there were two enthusiastic smart centers willing to pitch in to make it a success, as well as a strong owners club (MO-KAN Smart Car Club) to provide a pool of volunteers. I'm not sure the same situation exists in St. Louis and Denver. The largest groups of owners are on the east and west coasts - would it make more sense to have an event on each coast the next time around (as the Mini owners do) with a single national event every three years or so?



What are your thoughts?

Oklahoma City has the same problem as Denver or St Louis, plus the nearest smart dealer is in Tulsa. From contacts I've made I'm not even sure there is a Smart Club there.

I was wondering who put the survey together.

I was at the KC, Merriam Center Smart a couple weeks ago. The sales person ask me if we were putting on another Smart Nationals. I told her, I wasn't volunteering, and I didn't know. The dealer is now down one sales person, for both dealerships. MB sales person covers one of the dealerships. Sales are very weak, don't know if they would sponsor it again. Also will smart usa be a sponsor????? Registration fees sure didn't cover the Nationals cost. Need sponsors!!!!!

I have never seen a "sticky" about this or the survey. K.C. is my preffered location. I won't go to the west coast and the east coast is pushing the distance also.

Since most owners are concentrated on the coasts, I think it would make more sense to go for events on each coast and alternate if necessary to ensure enough attendees.

Just for reference, the Jeep event has tried multiple locations, but it seemed to be more popular on the east coast, FWIW:

1995-1998: Camp Hale, CO
1999-2001: Charlottesville, VA
2002: Branson, MO
2003: Charlottesville, VA
2004: Bi-Coastal at Charlottesville, VA and Santa Barbara, CA
2005: Wilkes-Barre, PA
2006: Elkhart Lake, WI
2007: Charlottesville, VA
