Hi guys,

I have a package of items that I need to get to the event. Is there anyone that I could ship the package to rather then dealing with flying it down with me?

Personal message me if I can ship this to you and retrieve it prior to the event.

Thanks,
Ryan
Ryan,

My wife and I will be attending and are checking in at the hotel the day prior. I can take the package--- if it'll fit in the back of our car :)
We're located East of the Sacramento-metro area. I'll send you a PM with the particulars, if that's helpful. I can drive it down and hand it to you at the hotel, if you'd like.

Ryan -

Can you ship it directly to the Hotel Majestic?

I'll be checking Saturday evening and would be happy to take temporary custody of this mysterious package! (I might peep, tho!)

Ooooh, got my email, paid my pals, and starting the COUNTDOWN!

90 SMARTIES...Wow. :eek:

Hey, Esteemed Committee - concerning the line-up...please remember that *my* license plates proclaim a smart "HULLO" to San Francisco and the World. Plus, my smartie is the most adorable of all the other smarties on the planet, who, it must be said, while truly cute, just don't quite possess her panache...

:rolleyes:[Ok. enough with the eyerolls...]

And about that mysterious package...ooooh, ooooh...Suze, can I help "peek" er, I mean "guard?"

Sort of off-topic, but was sitting at my computer this morning working on rally email and there was a bunch of commotion outside.

Looked out the window & there's a car rally going by (Gumball 3000 | Home) headed towards Lombard. Talked to one of them as they were waiting for a light & he said they were headed for China eventually!

Took a couple of pictures (& a video which I'll try to upload later):

Picasa Web Albums - SMART LOMBARD RALLY - Gumball3000

How funny is that?

Yes, which day? Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning? We'll be passing by Sacramento Saturday on our way to the Majestic.

Ok, smarties - a novice press release...

San Francisco Chronicle
News Desk Chief

"Having never written a 'press release' before, please forgive a novice.

On Sunday morning around 8 AM, Aug 17th 2008, there will be a rally of an anticipated 90 smart cars converging on Lombard St for a photo shoot, a day of smarting around the City, and a stab at spanning the glorious Golden Gate Bridge. I feel this is important on a number of levels:

1. Much more than merely "enthusiasts," many smart owners share a vision of the future of transportation, and chose to become participants in 'taking the leap.' (I see the smart car as a fusion of Techno and Art...but that's just me. <grin>)

2. Far from an 'advertisement' for smart, I see as the more the more important point, the Pensky Story of bringing smart to Americans, and the obvious relationship to innovation and American Jobs, as part of a broader message: The smart story is a very green story.

3. Culturally, the more "Regular Americans" are exposed to the joys of inspiration and innovation, I believe the "Regular American" Psyche will slowly open to Change, becoming more embracing of and positive about the future, as opposed to clinging to the fears of 'risk' that are so blocking to progress.

Anyway, since you are the News Desk, I thought you might have a reporter or two who would be interested in exploring the fabric of the smart idea, it's relevance to the need for Change in how we live and perceive personal transportation; and the extraordinary backdrop San Francisco provides for this unique Happening.

Here's a link to the Smart Car of America (SCOA) forum page for this event, all started by a small idea that grew into this!:
http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f56/official-2008-norcal-region-smart-rally-lombard-st-photoshoot-9719/

Some folks are making documentaries, and one couple is driving from New York. It's a long thread, but interesting.

Your time is much appreciated, and I thank you so much,


Susie Fischer"

Hope that passes muster.
