Despite being early in the new year, there are already plans for a number of different smart events in 2015.  While many of these events are based in the US, Canadians are more than welcome to attend those as well.  There are also a few Canadian events in the planning phases as well, so have a look at those too!
 
Probably the first large event of the year is the Ohio April Fools rally, taking place April 10th-12th, 2015.  The rally will be held somewhere around Central Ohio (Location not yet determined), and is being organized by jwight.  Last years rally ended with the group touring the Ohio State Reformatory, the filming location of The Shawshank Redemption.  For further details on this years event, click through to the SCoA thread HERE
 
The next major event of the year is the Midwest Smart Rallye, "Meet me in St. Louie".  This event is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri from June 5th to 7th.  This one is shaping up to be a big event, with 20 cars signed up already.  For more details on the midwest rally, click HERE
 
Proposed for the same time frame is the Summer Blat, starting in Red Deer, Alberta, and ending in Lake Louise, Alberta.  The schedule outlined puts the event as running from June 5th until June 8th.  If you are interested in this event, post over in the thread HERE
 
Following up after that is the ever popular "OutSMARTing the Dragon" event.  Running from August 20th to August 23rd, this event pits drivers against the twisty-turny Tail of the Dragon, also known as US 129.  The Tail of the Dragon is an 11 mile stretch of road through the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, with 318 curves.  The event will be based out of the Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, North Carolina.  For the full details, follow THIS link.
 
Finally, one event which is still in the "gathering interest" phase, is a 2015 Summer Driver's Training event that Mike T is looking to put together.  The event would be at a track (potentially Pitt Meadows or the Mission Raceway) in BC.  This event also holds the potential of being another 10th Anniversary of Smart in Canada event.  Because this event is just gathering interest, there is no set date.  If you are interested in participating in this, or would like to provide some input, look HERE

A separate registry of the smart fortwo 450's that were imported into the USA by G&K has now been put online!  Currently we have 114 of the cars in our registry, and are looking to find and enter the information for the rest of them.  The registry can be found HERE, or under the "Car Registries" menu at the top of the page.  The same disclaimer as we applied for the Canadian registry applies here:

ClubsmartCar has prepared a comprehensive Registry of all smart 450s (1998-2006 models) that we are aware of in North America.  We certainly have all 10,239 of the Canadian 450s, and we are making headway on adding the approximately 1,300 US 450s that were converted to meet US DOT certification by G&K in California.

In compiling the data within the Registry, we have added information concerning the colours and options that the cars spotted in person or on the Internet are known to have, whether they have been in collisions or have been declared “Salvage”, “Scrapped”, “Rebuilt”, or whether the engine is known to have had a serious internal failure.  This information has been collected from various sources.  It may therefore be of variable quality.  However, we hope that you find it interesting, and useful.

We are also looking to have updated information added from time to time, and in this quest, any information that you may be able to contribute may be submitted, and may be displayed after the content is reviewed.

As time and circumstances allow, we will be adding the 451 and eventually the 453 model to the Registry.

The Canadian 450 registry can be found HERE, or by following the "Car Registries" menu at the top of the page.

    @  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 01:24 PM) Genius. I never even saw that selection, and have no idea how "items I started" got selected. Thank you!
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 01:03 PM) Are any of the things in the left column under the "other" section checked?
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 01:02 PM) Got it
    @  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 01:02 PM) done
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 10:05 AM) Definitely send me a screenshot via PM then.
    @  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 08:55 AM) I'm back from Australia, same issue on my laptop. "View New Content" doesn't show any new content. Chrome on Win7
    @  KurtMan : (10 April 2015 - 10:00 AM) Thanks for the suggestion but it looks like uncle Glen will be supplying me a used one.
    @  turbomar : (09 April 2015 - 08:34 PM) Perhaps you could check with Troy. He may have a good used one??
    @  KurtMan : (09 April 2015 - 12:53 PM) Do you have a place in mind to order from? I don't want to pay more than a couple hundred...
    @  marchanna : (09 April 2015 - 12:31 PM) Did you try ordering one online. You can probably get next day delivery.
    @  KurtMan : (09 April 2015 - 10:16 AM) Does anyone have a parts car in the Ottawa area? I need an intercooler A.S.AP
    @  Francesco : (07 April 2015 - 01:32 PM) yeah 3G. There was a long lineup at Vodaphone. Didn't know Optus uses LTE bands my iPad doesn't cover... Vodaphone worked on LTE last time I was here
    @  Francesco : (07 April 2015 - 01:30 PM) I won't make you chase this until I get home next week. It has to be related to the hotel wifi portal somehow, at it has worked fine on Optus 3G for a few days until we checked in to this hotel
    @  marchanna : (07 April 2015 - 09:43 AM) It would appear so
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (07 April 2015 - 09:24 AM) It seems like Francesco is having some different problem than you were
    @  marchanna : (07 April 2015 - 08:55 AM) It works fine for me now. Do you still want a screenshot?
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (07 April 2015 - 05:10 AM) hmmm... mind sending me a PM with a screenshot if possible?
    @  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:28 PM) Ok cleared cookies, it showed I was logged out and there was a raft of "new content" but when I sign in it still says "Sorry..."
    @  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:25 PM) just for data points, I may have broken cookies or something, I'm in Surfers Paradise on hotel wifi right now
    @  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:25 PM) What I'm saying is it *always* tells me "Sorry, no new content found," though if I click the "Forums" tab above it clearly shows new posts
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:59 PM) OK, the behaviour has now been changed. View New Content should now always default to Forum content, no matter what page you click the button from
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:43 AM) I'll leave it as an open question for the day, and will change it when I get home tonight.
    @  marchanna : (06 April 2015 - 07:38 AM) I think that what be best unless some one else thinks otherwise.
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:37 AM) (Yes I can change it, relatively easily). Do we want the View New Content button to ALWAYS default to showing new Forum content? That probably makes the most sense. The other options would still be there, but you would have to manually select them.
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:33 AM) I'll have a look though
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:33 AM) Not sure if I can change that, because usually people want to see the new content for the Forums
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:33 AM) Yeah, that's the default behaviour. YOu should then be able to manually change between what type of New Content you are viewing with the options on the left side of the page from there
    @  marchanna : (06 April 2015 - 07:05 AM) It appears to show the "new Content" of whatever subcategory you're in. Ie, when I was reading PMs, then click view new content, I got nothing because I was in the Members sub category. But when I clicked Forums, then View New Content, it worked fine for me.
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 04:45 AM) When you click "New Content", is the "Content Type" on the left side of the page set to Forums, or something else? If you do Marchanna's trick, it will open to the Forum stuff by default, but I think if you go from the front page, it will use whatever you last selected (intentionally or otherwise)
    @  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 02:56 AM) Yeah, not showing me anything.
    @  marchanna : (05 April 2015 - 02:35 PM) I think there's a glitch. Click on forums first (at the left of the page) then click on view new content button
    @  Francesco : (05 April 2015 - 01:09 PM) I think "View New Content" is broken, doesn't show me anything anymore.
