Historic Hoover Dam Run,SinCitySmarts

SinCitySmarts is planning a historic run across trhe Hoover Dam. Now as ordinary as this may sound trust me it's not. The Hoover Dam is planning to open the new By-pass bridge in November of this year. In doing that all car traffic across the Dam will cease only open for foot traffic. SinCitySmarts needs you help.

We are going to put a helicopter and a camera man over the Dam, at the same time we drive across for what will be a great photo that can never be done again. This will be as great of a photo as the one taken in San Francisco on Lombard St. But I need your help. After doing the math, to pull this off we need a minium of 35 cars and in this case more is better. SinCitySmarts has about 25 cars so I'm reaching out to California, Utah, and Arizona for help.The Date is October 23,2010 7:00am at the Hacienda Hotel in Boulder City NV., I know it's alot to ask, for you to drive to Las Vegas just to take a photo, But I need more cars. Please help us pull this off.

This will also be the largest gathering of Smarts ever assemled in Las Vegas. We are still working out some of the details for things to do after we do our drive over, and I will get that out to everyone as soon as I know more.

Trust me, You don't want to miss out on this event...

Maybe this will generate some positive press for the smart?

I'd do it if I had a smart...

Historic Hoover Dam Run:

We want to be in on this event as well. As soon as we know the details, we will make hotel reservations with a plan to arrive on Friday afternoon. Hopefully, a caravan will be organized from the Los Angeles area and everyone will see fit to book in at the same hotel. It would also be nice to make a weekend out of this and hopefully,the SinCitySmarts will have something planned following the photo op.?: smartje.rd.zw:

I am aware of the Oct 16 Open House, but are you saying you will get a drive across for smarts the following Saturday? If confirmed, we'll do what we can to make it. We'll be looking forward to your plans. As there are 65 parking places on the NV side, it would be great to fill it up with smarts...

I'm interested but like "Smart Bob" some more details would be great. I'd be coming up from Phoenix and might stay at Laughlin instead of Vegas unless we are all going to meet up a specific hotel.

I think your thinking we are driving across the bridge, We are driving across Hoover Dam because after they open the bridge the dam will no longer have car traffic so thats what makes this Historic. And to answer your question yes we are planning things to do after the photo we just haven't figured it all out yet, We just wanted to get the date out to everyone as soon as we could so you could start plannig for it.


Thank You For Your Interest

You are 100% correct.. Because of the cost of the helicopter these times will not,can not and won't change. 7:00am we meet at the Hacienda Hotel, we will have a short drivers meeting then head out. We MUST have all the cars through the secruity check piont by 8:30am I will then call the Pilot and he will take off. It only takes him 45 secs to get to the Dam,then he starts to hover. We are working on things to do afterwards so yes it will be a good part of the day hanging out with everyone...
