From One Bay Area Kid to Another. Come on Down :)

It's a bit of a drive but I know people have taken the drive to come to our events, so I want to make sure you're aware...

Thank you.
JPaul,

Why would you do this?

First, we are not a smart car dealership and are putting on this gathering as a fun get together. Nothing else.

Second, this is a free event that we regularly put on for the smart car community. We sponsor the local smart car club "SoCal smarties" and are active members. This is simply a coffee and donuts get together followed by a fun little rally and a lunch get together.

Third, this notice was posted under the local Southern California Groups. Since there are several of them on this board we made sure we created a separate post in each of the groups section to make sure all the locals know. In the past some local owners stated they did not know about our event since they only look at happenings in their specific area.

Lastly, we have no business being in the dealership area of the forum. We do not sell cars! This is a get together in So California and by removing all the threads from the California Clubs you are causing harm to the community by not letting them be aware of an event in their area. The section we posted in is for smart car clubs. We are members of the club and are communicating with fellow club members like we have over the last several years.

The local clubs do not visit the dealer area for information on what is happening locally.

How is this edit helpful to the community?

I kindly ask that you reconsider and put the original posts back up where they belong so that the local owners know the info that was intended for them.

Respectfully,
Boris

I, too, was confused by the move.

Since the "Madness" community (associates and patrons) is actively involved in So Cal Smarties, I would naturally go to that section to seek out comments on events that I find out about through email from So Cal Smarties.

It still makes no sense to us. This move does more harm than good, but it's not my call. I made several requests, but as you can see it made little difference. :-(


...on another topic...

We will have a film crew with an Oscar Winning Director at the meet up filming a special project that will focus on smart cars and the owners. So, if you are in SoCal, have a smart car come on down (please RSVP first).

It'll be fun!
