University of Tennessee
Neyland Stadium, Gate 21
Accessible via Philip Fulmer Way
Great event overall w/great newspaper press (print + online) beforehand to help drive traffic to us, including some good press by the UTK daily email system, 'Tennessee Today.' Great weather! This is our more typical event MO: drop several vehicles into a large crowd and start talking. Probably 35,000-40,000 were in this busiest area around Neyland Stadium due to the Vol Walk (players and band come through during afternoon); we estimate we directly interacted with around 500 but WAY more than that walked by and looked into & saw vehicles. 3 EVs there: BMW i3, Tesla & UTK's EcoCAR2 plug-in Chevy Malibu. About 10 volunteers helped through the 4 hours.
