What:
"It's OFFICIAL" Lombard St. smart Photo-Shoot is set for August 17th!"

Purpose: The purpose of this meet is to rally together all of the smart cars in the Norcal region (And anyone from anywhere else is welcome too). Meet some cool people who share the same passion, enjoy a nice cruise past San Francisco landmarks, have your picture taken at the renowned Lombard street, maybe have your smart in a movie?, and have a great lunch at downtown Sausalito?

Who: Anyone who shares a love for the smart Fortwo is welcome to join. You don’t even have to be from the San Francisco Region (How ever only people who drive a smart can participate in the photo shoot)

Where: Meet at initial staging area (Released to registered smarties). Second stop will be at Lombard Street at the first break of light.

Fee: There will be a minimal registration fee ($20 pre-register or $30 at the door) to help cover cost of Filming commission, Lombard st. homeowners association, Police, permits, and insurance for the rally.

When: August 17th, 2008, at the initial meeting point/Staging area.

Places to Stay: Hotel Majestic, the oldest continuously running hotel in San Francisco, has provided an attractive group rate. Starting Monday, June 23, call the hotel at (800) 869-8966 or http://www.thehotelmajestic.com. Ask for the SMART Rate or if you go through the website to book, just use rate code: 1019.


Proposed Agenda:
-7:00 to 8am staging area (address released to registered smarties)

-8:30 line up at Lombard street
-10:30-11:30am start scenic cruise Fort Point
-12:00am meet and greet (East parking lot of Spinnikers in Sausalito)
-12:01-2:30pm lunch and/or continued meet and greet
-3pm *Optional drive down highway 1


We will like a list of who is interested in joining us for a day of festivities (To make sure we can accommodate you. Please Register at [email protected]

I'm in. Will probably have to develop a cold to get the day off, but it sounds like too much fun to miss. Good thing my boss is too busy to read this forum.

For those of us in other parts of the country who are familiar with Lombard St. but can't make the event (I live in Florida) I hope you all will arrange for availablility of a high resolution photo or access to a professionsl photo or poster of all of the smarts on Lombard. Even though I won't be able to participate I would happily pay for a good photo or poster.

Thanks

I think this is the hottest idea out there but, while I was talking to my friend who is a photographer in the Bay Area he had some concerns. His major one was that when cars are on Lombard St only the roofs of the cars are visible, unless you are getting permission to shoot the photo from one of the homes it will not be as impressive as it should be. Maybe this has already been adressed but I couldn't find a discussion of it.

This perspective looks good but wrong lighting!



Sorry for the temporary hijack, We now return you to the Sign-up Thread!

Aren't you glad I'm not driving the camera for this shoot!!!
