Confirmations Not Sent

I just received this from Sean at smartcentergermantown.

"There was suppose to be a confirmation email but I guess it did not work out the way we intended. We are all set for tomorrow and will be here as early as 6 am to open the doors. We will have breakfast and smart cherry blossom shirts for all. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow and sorry for the lack of communication back after your rsvp. We have 60 rsvp so we are expecting a great turn out."

It was nice to see you all find the spiral way into the parking under L'Enfant Plaza Hotel. Hope you had a good time...

2 Funny bits from the drive

I was #3 in line.

Just after we crossed Legion bridge into VA, I heard on the news (WTOP)

"There is a slow "FUNERAL PROCESSION" proceeding on the outer loop of 495 just crossing the Legion Bridge.

I thought it was a FUN PROCESSION?

Then, just as we were exiting GW PARKWAY and turning onto the street that runs from Arlington Cemetary to Memorial Bridge, I noticed two black suburbans with blacked out windows and dark suited guys wearing sunglasses and talking into radio mikes and taking pics of us.(probably Secret Service).
About 3 minutes later, there was an alert on the DC security info net:
"BOLO (Be On Look Out): A large group of tiny cars with flashing lights crossing Memorial Bridge, OAR (Observe And Report)".

Had a really great time.

Please post lots of pics.

Great Time Cherry Blossom Ride

Had a great time! Didn’t the dealership notify either WTOP or DC Police of our procession. I was thinking as we were driving to call WTOP and report our location, would have been great publicity same with WFRE out of Frederick, they like those kind of stories.

Thanks for the fun, maybe next year however we could get there a little earlier to catch more of the parade. Maybe even some bleacher seating, we could all sit together with our smart shirts.

Where are the pictures going to be posted? Or where can we send pictures for a master gallery?
