Event Report

This was the first time we attempted to have an event in Florence. The site wasn't as good as we would have liked, but was the best we could do on short notice. Materials were never received from Nissan, even though they were ordered. We heard reports from other captains that they didn't receive materials also. Fortunately another captain brought banners, and other materials from a previous event, or we would have had no way to attract drivers on highway 101 to the event. We hope to have a more visible site next year. We were also competing with a hot rod show event in old town Florence, and the organizers were contacted, but returned our calls to late to secure space for our event in the old town area. It was a great learning experience/ first attempt and we can use the knowledge gained to reach more people next year. We have no photos of this year's event yet.
