The weather really did not cooperate. We had pouring rain all morning. The rain did stop about when our event started, however, it rained again pretty hard right in the middle of the event. Despite the bad weather, everyone who signed up to show cars came as promised. We had three vendors present: Nissan, Telsla, and BMW. Lots of great conversation with those showing cars. The public who did attend asked lots of great questions.
