Thanks for the Rally!

Janice and I wanted to say thank you to everyone involved in the planning, execution, and participation in the 2014 Midwest smart Rally.

This was our first Rally after owning the car for a year. We went into it not really knowing what to expect, and we were shocked.

This group, in person even moreso than online, is comprised of some of the nicest, funniest, and most helpful people we've had the privilege to meet. We immediately felt welcomed and part of the group, and as 2 of the younger people there, we were able to blend in and have a great time without any problems.

It was honestly sad leaving. We had a great time with you all and can't wait for the next time we can make it to an event.

And Janice is pretty much sold on trading in her Kia Soul for a smart The family may be growing!

Holy crap! You bought the Bee? Congrats to the buyer AND the seller! You get a great car and he gets to start dressing up another one, lol.

Love your town, btw. Had a wonderful time and met some awesome people

Yes, a fun event indeed! The food was great, and the band was a lot of fun!

Here's a picture from the car show this morning:


And in the "plugging future events" category, it seemed the Mystery Run was getting a lot of chatter. Here's the link to the SCoA thread, and the CsC thread.

Thanks Art for this great event. Loved the Amana Colonies and all it had to offer. Food was excellent and enjoyed the band at Kent Park. Met a lot of new faces and enjoyed meeting up with all our Smart Family. Looking forward to seeing some of you at the mystery run in Ontario.
John & Elaine
P.S. Congrats to the new owner of The Killer Bee
