TITLE: 2008 smart car FALL CRUISE

Without further delay, Jim and I have FINALLY come up with a date for the NEW Niagara Falls smart car wine tour and cruise event. This year's cruise will take place on the long weekend of OCTOBER 12th and 13th, 2008. What better way to spend a long weekend than with a bunch of smart cars and their owners cruising through the Niagara Region in the crisp fall air amidst the turning leaves!
This is the forth year for this event, this year two full days in Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada.

Jim and I will work out a more acute detailed agenda for the 2 days but for the time being in brief:

Sunday October 12th. Winery tour, limited number for the afternoon event, first come first served. Early registration and a casual get together for an dinner and possible evening event depending on numbers. Place still to be announced.

Monday October 13th. Morning breakfast/brunch at MARK's No Frills in Niagara, registration and meet and greet plus show and shine and displays. A cruise circling the Niagara area and ending with a bag your own picnic lunch back at the No Frill's parking lot and handing out great prizes and full day auction terminations and fund raiser for the smile charity (Mark's No Frills store).

Stay tuned everyone! More details to come! We will prepare a sign-up list very soon as well as handouts for everyone to print out and hand to ANY smart car owners they meet or cars they see.

We are looking forward to seeing old friends and our new USA smart car friends. Last years event saw 300 smart car participants and almost 150 smarts all together - this year we are hoping to break that record.

Stay turned for more information and a sign up list ...

Jim and Cleo

Falls Wine Tour and Smart Car Cruise

Sounds like a good idea and will pass along to your Michigan Smart Car Neighbors. Still waiting on our car but arriving soon and might consider this as this writer and her husband love touring in Canada!

Yahoo! This sounds like a lot of fun and in a great area as well. Looking forward to more details. If the dates are firm we can add them to the Calendar. :)

Count us in

Hey Jim & Cleo,

Count us in! Let us know a few good room rates and possible B&B rates for the Niagara area on those dates.

Sounds like a great Sunday and Monday in October. :)

We started the 1st Pittsburgh Smart Car Club on Nov 2007 and the 2008 smart cars only started coming in the first week of Feb 2008. Currently have only 4 members and growing. The next shipment at Pittsburgh Smart Center is for 30 cars come mid-April. Maybe more members then.

I'll mention your event at our first big event on May 11th.

Our website: www.PittsburghSmartCarClub.org

Our email: [email protected]

Thanks Tomkk!
Really appreciate your help. I truly am looking forward to seeing some of our American friends this fall. It should be lots of fun. Last year we had 127 smarts! Have you ever driven in a conga line consisting of 127 smarts cruising through picturesque Niagara?!

Keep an eye out for updates through out the coming weeks and months. We will ensure to include links and info for nearby inns, hotels and B&B's.

We absolutely love Niagara, especially in the fall (by the falls . . .) and haven't been out there in awhile so your timing is great (as the wife works for a High School that takes Columbus Day off) so count us in.

Let's see if we can beat your last event's record !

there is a 'Mystery tour' coming up on Oct 3rd around the Hamilton Niagara region including some wineries go check out clubsmartcar.ca and sign up it's gonna be a blast. Also Randy Zimmer is planning a fall colour cruise around the US side a little later on. We will be at both hopefully and bring some shirts etc. if anyone wants a bamboo clubsmartcar shirt.
