Hope they can tweak the event and make it a success.

How about our rethinking an Austin event. Hold it a different weekend. Get input from Austin, San Antonio and Houston smarts and have an event similar to the Ohio April Fools event. Arrive Friday, do a drive with various stops on Saturday eat breakfast on Sunday and then everyone heads for home. It could be any weekend this fall.
It would be great if a Texas person or persons volunteered to help with planning since they have a better idea of what to do there.

Great idea for someone local to take this on. I'd planned to be at the Grand Prix but that's not going to happen.

I just got my smart and I'm sad to see this event's cancelled. Are there any other smart meetups or groups in the Austin area? Any events planned?

Unhappy

We were really excited to see an event back home that we could drive the cdi down for (and to see friends, family, and then there's bbq, good beer, tex mex) oh well, maybe next year...

The F1 race is definitely on. This would be an opportunity for some local smart owners to meet up if they'd like to.
