why would u do it this day nationals is still going on
It was the only weekend that there wasn't something going on in Downtown Lakeland and Harry's could accommodate our group.

Didn't see nationals as an attendance issue... other than you and possibly Chip, I don't know of anyone else in the area that is attending nationals.

Also wanted to get it in before the heat really kicks in in July.

Do wish you could attend though... would love to see the progress on the engine.

Dear smart car owner,

Suncoast Smarts and Central Florida Smart Cars Club will be holding a joint event on Sunday June 13th. The event will involve 3 caravans that will leave from the general vicinity of the Sarasota, Clearwater and Orlando dealerships and will end in downtown Lakeland, FL. Once in Lakeland, we’ll have a group lunch at Harry’s Seafood, a meet and greet as well as a group photo by Lake Mirror.

<snipped, same as Bill's OP>
