The highlight was 10 BEVs and 2 PHEV's in the same location, including two Tesla MS and one Roadster. Local event at the library. Lots of walk-ins over the course of the six hour event. No dignitaries or special events, just owners talking about their vehicles to the general public. Since I have no volunteer help, I'm pretty limited in what I can do. We didn't give test drives due to parking on the walkway in front of the library and concern for liability.
