Event Report

The event was nice but we didn't get as many non ev drivers than I had expected. The free milkshakes I provided was successful and it was great to mingle with fellow EV driers. We did have someone from St Louis visit!
Next year I will probably do it at a different location where there is more foot traffic and closer to some charging stations.
But as they say, baby steps.

Event Description


National Drive Electric Week, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so.
