Greetings everyone,

Just a friendly reminder about the 2nd Annual Key West Drive and over the next two weeks we have several luncheons, and Cars and Coffees happening. If you are in Miami, Pensacola, Jacksonville, or Tampa this Saturday 13 July, or Gainesville on the 20th, come out and participate. Please check below for event details.

Key West Drive Registration is Open!

This year will be an ACNA member’s only event. With that said if you join the ACNA to participate in this event as a new first time member, the board of directors would waive your registration fee as your welcome to the ACFL and ACNA. You get the members privileges and registration for $49, our initial plan was $40 for non-member of ACNA.

This is a onetime deal, so if you have ever thought about joining, now is the time. You can call the main office at 262-567-5476, or join on-line at If you join ACNA to participate, please email me your membership number so I can verify and add you to the registration.

I have to have verifiable membership with ACNA no later than 8 August. Registration fee for existing and renewing members will be $30 per car due in by 9 August. Due to safety reasons, we will be limiting the registration to 25 cars total for the event. You can send your registration fee to me one of two ways right now.

In order that we enter the digital age, you can send it PayPal friends and family to avoid fees to [email protected], or snail mail at the following address so I can make the bank deposits, and verify membership. Please include a short note with your name, address, ACNA member number, make, model and year of your Audi, number of adults and children, along with your email address for registration confirmation.

We were not able to get a group rate in Pompano Beach, FL, but there are several reasonable priced hotels nearby if you drive in the night before. We have secured a group rate in Key West thanks to Andreas Regalado, for August 22rd-26th at the Key West Marriott your Beachside. The hotel extended the group rate to two nights before just in case anyone desires to go on down and meet us there, and one night after if anyone wants an extra day in Key West to explore.

We plan to drive down from E3 Customs 4100 N Powerline Rd, Suite E3 Pompano Beach, FL 33073 to the Key West Marriott Beachside Hotel on August 24th departing approximately 9:30 am. Our plan is to gather for dinner that evening at 6:30 pm at the hotel restaurant.

Get a roommate or mates if you are single and split room or better yet a suite. The suites are huge, have a balcony and sofa bed also. The room rate is $189; the one bedroom suite is $259. The hotel restaurant has an awesome dinner menu, and an excellent breakfast. You can call (305) 296-8100 or use the link below.
