smart center Orlando would like to welcome you to our Grand Opening/ 1st anniversary party. It is going to be the grandest social smart event of 2009. With over 60 smart cars and 120 people having already confirmed their attendance this will be the largest smart event in the eastern united states and maybe the entire US!
Dave Schembri, the president of smart USA has indicated he will be coming. This will be an awesome opportunity to meet with him and pass your ideas along about our company and the cars.
We will have food and beverages, music, drawings for door prizes, how-to sessions held by our parts and service manager Garrett Heady and lots more. We are still finalizing the details but we anticipate radio station coverage, a professional photographer to take glamour shots with your smart, and several companies such as ULTIMATE AUDIO, BREATHLESS PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, KIDD'S KUSTOM SMARTS, & EUROPEAN TOYS to come and show off all their accessories and showcase their beautiful custom cars.
Julie, Judson, Garrett and I are very excited for the party. We appreciate your support and enthusiam and can't wait to see everyone come out to enjoy themselves and show off their unique smart. We could use your help to make this a great event. We are interested in more door prizes such as gift certificates and volunteers to help with parking. Also if you have any contacts that may be able to help us entice the local news media to cover the event it would be super helpful. Please contact me if you can help out!
If you would like to attend the event and haven't contacted me already please e-mail me at [email protected] or you may also contact the organizer of the central florida smart car club Ken Wagar @ 863.585.5606 to confirm your attendance.
Sign up today!
Sincerely,

I think Orland is doing something GREAT.... It would be a good idea if Smart Center of Buckhead will host an event in the upcomming future aswell. Before there was talks of doing somthing in JANUARY but still have no updates.

What are Smart Center of Buckheads plans for the Smart community?

Wouldn't the question better be directed to Buckhead via the telephone? It seems like you're calling out smart Buckhead.
Absolutley not that is not my intentions. I love Smart Center of Buckhead and think they are an excellent dealership. I just wanted to communicate that the Ga Community is interested and inquiring also.
Yes the numbers as far as attendees may be on a smaller scale but I think all Ga smart owners would appreciate something or anything hosted by the dearlership to help unite us.

Again Smart Center of Buckhead has always treated me well so I have no complaints. I would personaly like to see them more active in the scene of current and new smart owners.

I have no doubt that the smart owners in GA would turn out for an event similar to the one being planned for Orlando. Again, I'll throw it out there that the dealerships might not be able to do more than the once a year thing... I just don't think it's in the budget and it's really not their responsability anyways. What I'm trying to say is that if we're going to lay the ground work for a national network of SCOA clubs we're going to have to do it ourselves.

I know that you've setup a couple of events in the Atlanta area. I'd urge you to keep up with that and at the same time work with us on the SE regional rally planning... We really need someone up in your area to step up and plan the trip down from Georgia.

Buckhead is a lot closer to me than Orlando is. AND, that's where I bought my smart. :)

But, they don't have a lot of room there, ya know? Hmmm

More like it's Mercedes Benz of Buckhead only. Yes, and that storage area, off to the side, behind the detailing section, behind the vans, that the smart car area. just don't call the main number. The smart car owners are not the "right" people for this dealership.

Well we will see when it happens. I am a patient person. Seems age has done that to me and so many years in the Marines and Civil Service. My other option was an HHR from Chevy. I like the little panel truck they came up with. I have not seen a Smart in person yet, tho I have read a lot here and other places on the new one. Lots of assumptions but a few have come up with good timely comments. I am stiil very much interested in the car as my commuter to work. My old Corvairs would work too, paid for, but not very practicle for the real world driving today. :)
I cannot believe they'd make you come all the way up here...
