Audi Club Florida March 2019 Newsletter

Roar Before the 24 2019

February brought to the First Coast Region a cold blast that brought out some cool cars to Cars and Coffee. We had record attendance at the monthly luncheon, with 10 cars arriving from Cars and Coffee.

Thank you to all who attended and for once again exceeding expectations, resulting in us having to get many additional tables to seat 28 who arrived in 22 Audis.

February 15th-17th the Jacksonville International Auto Show took place at the Prime Osborne Convention Center in Jacksonville, FL.  Audi of Jacksonville participated with many of the newest models, the all new Q8 and A7 stole the show followed closely by the special edition R8.  The First Coast Region of Audi Club of Florida had volunteers standing by ready to assist as needed.

March brings us a special Cars and Coffee at Amelia Island. The Amelia’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours allows individuals with vintage, exotic, and collectible vehicles to gather on the same show field used to display vehicles entered in the following day’s prestigious concours d’elegance.

We are starting to lay the groundwork for the Annual Key West Drive, and our inaugural attendance at FixxFest since these require allot of planning.

We are also in the process of getting an all new website online, with Audi related news articles and content updated almost daily.  The direct url is, and is accessible through the ACNA Florida Chapter page also.  This page will be mobile friendly to view.  It is a work in process.  I am leaning on the ACNA Web Administrator for help, but trying to learn to learn myself and not burden him. too much.
