Event Report

We had 59 electric vehicles 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, three student robotics teams and some great exhibits by Puget Sound Solar and Torklift Central and several other vendors. We appreciated visits from special guests including Issaquah Mayor Fred Butler, state Representative Chad Magendanz, King County Council Chair Larry Phillips, and the Governor's Senior Transportation Adviser Charles Knutsen with the Governor's NDEW proclamation. The weather was alternately threatening, then warm and sunny, and the rain held off until we were packing up for the day. Our raffle drawing raised $220, which was more than enough to cover expenses. Raffle donations included a DVD of "Who Killed the Electric Car?" an RC Tesla Roadster with batteries, Nissan test drive gift certificates, and an EVSE!
