I would've missed it too if it hadn't been for my mother. I had (stupidly) not checked for a smart USA page on facebook.

Now that's the kind of exposure the event needs. Funny, there's even the stereotypical Smart-hate on a Smart Facebook page you have to "Like" to comment on. Some people...
Greg's Smart is the sole winner in the I-want-that-one department. Didn't see that one coming! Love his - it's my favorite one I've ever seen. I make sure to tell people about the Smart Ass story all the time, too!

ACK!!! I thought I had replied earlier to this! Funny story, folks.
I had just called The 'Glen after our event, and asked to talk to Mike Evranian. The woman informs me that "Mike is no longer with us..." :eek::eek::eek:
I had to wait a second, process it, and ask her again. I said "Excuse me?"
She said that he had just received a promotion, accepted a job at another track owned by the company, and is working under his old boss. He is still very much alive.
Mike Eckert is filling in for Mike Evranian at Watkins Glen in the meanwhile, until they find Evranian's replacement. So any thanks, letters, or questions go to Eckert. I guess planning the next event is indefinitely on hold until I can either A) Find Evranian again for suggestions, or B) They get a more permanent replacement after Eckert, who hasn't yet returned my post-event call.
By the way, Gayle Malone sent everyone that was there an email via DropBox to share pictures. I hope everyone got it! If not, let me know.

Parking in Pit Lane won't be possible due to safety concerns at the track with the Pace Car rides they give throughout the day - which, I found out, are $50 per person AFTER you've paid your admission into the Wine Festival. We made out pretty good I'd say, and we even had our own cars.
I would certainly like to go down Pit Road though! Especially switch drivers if possible. Organizing a later time would sure be nice, as well.
I would sure like to make it out for the Nationals, though! I should probably not expect a wide-reaching turnout for next year then, but I'll sure hope for the best! I'm excited for it again already, I know that much.

I believe that time frame is the week after the national convention in Denver. We made the decision to skip our regional event during the years of the national event (every 3rd year) as most people only can budget time for one event.
Just a thought..

Hmm, Finger Lakes Wine Festival is officially scheduled for July 12-14 next year. It would be awesome if we could do this again then and get them to make it part of the festival.
Maybe we could arrange a slightly later time with a trip (or parking) in (or near) the pit lane.
Once July opens up on Travelocity, I'm booking Friday night through Sunday morning... I like my wine. Going to be bottling up some homemade strawberry wine with the first being uncorked December 29 at 11:59:59 and sipped January 1 at 12:00:00.

My GF posted her photos to Facebook yesterday. Anyone who wants to see them, please send me a friend request (e-mail: nathanial dot c dot jones at gmail dot com). Please mention in the note something identifying about your smart, preferably your position on the track (upon entering) or in our line-up afterwards.
Note: I am willing to friend more smart owners, but I want to limit to those at Watkins Glen first.
