The information table was consistently busy throughout the 5.5 hour EV Gathering, with the assistance of information boards, verbally answering questions, handing out printed information and guiding individuals to the EVs and their owners.  The EV owners were kept busy explaining how much fun it is to drive an EV, how the existing charging system permits more EV driving than most individuals would expect, how EVs start in very cold weather when diesel and hybrids can't start, and how much money we are saving in fuel paying the equivalent of ~20 cents a litre.

The electric scooter, the e-assist bicycle and fully electric bicycle caught a lot of attention as well.
