Woodbridge, VA 22193
The event started out low-key but picked up as the day grew. First we had one Zero, eventually two, a Spark, another LEAF, and even some non-participant EVs. We taught visitors about NRG eVgo and about how silent even the electric bikes are. Around 13:30 the first of the #Richmond2Woodbridge rally cars arrived with Richmond organizer Charles Gerena as a BMW i3, then one, then two Tesla Model S, the second, and relay prize winner, Lanny Hartmann, regaled us while taking time out from his busy work at http://pluginsites.org/.
As things wore down, Charles and I grabbed a pizza and some wings and then I manned the booth until 17:00 when MOM's Organic Market helped clean up. Alas, Supervisor Principi was unable to attend though gave his regards. And there was no time to get a plaque made to recognize Drive Electric Week but overall my first Drive Electric Week event in Manassas was a success and I would say my last in Woodbridge was equally great and the start of something bigger!
