Event Report

We had a very good turn out considering that it rained a lot off and on. We had good burger sales which is a measure of the public attendance. We did good outreach and had a chance between showers to take photos and send them to the owners email. We then ask them if they wanted to be invited by email to our next EV shows.

I want to thank Virginia Winslow for the idea of the photos to document the cars and owners and as a give back of the photosto this same owners for their attendance.

Great to have the nDEW web pages for teaching others how to do a great WV show. Keep up the great work and thanks to Tom S for how care in web management and the City Capt.

The location is the historic Triple X Root Beer Drive-In: a monument to the history of motoring and a regional destination famous for its weekly car shows.

Last May we had 59+ EVs on display representing more than 1.5 million oil-free miles! The event also included lots of fun activities such as a scavenger hunt with prizes, student robotics teams and some great exhibits by Puget Sound Solar, Torklift Central, 8th Street EVO, and other vendors.
