We received this letter from Mike Bobadilla, president of Vespa Club of America today:
"Thank you for your sponsorship of Amerivespa 20 in Lake Geneva. Amerivespa was a great success. We had over 1,000 attendees. We raffled off over 65 raffle packages which included your contributions plus 4 scooters donated from Vespa USA, Genuine Scooter Co., Kymco USA, and Scooterworks. (Over 30k in raffle prizes) It was a mix of vintage and modern scooters, with about 1/3 vintage scooters. Our attempt to break the Guinness World Record of 860 scooters in a parade did fall short. We did have 660 scooters over a 2 mile route which is a new record for North America. Our next Amerivespa will be in San Diego next June. I hope that we can count on your support once again.
