Event Report

Everyone is notable at our EVents. We did not see any TV crews or politicians but we did have one of the first Tesla owners in the US when he bought his Roadster, then his wife got a Tesla S P85 and they just got a P90D Ludcrous for his company. Their Tesla S P85 has purple trim and dash. Elon Musk actually signed the dash since it's a Signature Edition.

It was so crowded we could not do the drive and ride.

We also had a EV Parade led by a ZERO motor motorcycle.
