Event Report

We had people who find the event on media that is promoting this location which has car shows nearly every sunday.  We are proud of our members for promoting the event thru chapter meetings and at other shows and earthly events.  At this event we had a good mix of conversion EVs and new models.  For example an Etron, a Polstar, Rivian, Ford 250 conversion, Ghia Conversion, Zero Motorcycle, and Fiat 500e.  Other commercial EVs from the New Nissan LEAF to all models of the Tesla with the exception of a roadster showed up and did the digital dances that Tesla is famous for. 

The weather was predicted to be showers and luckily it only sprinkled a little and the sun came out for a time.  This burger joint is famous for the size of the burgers and the original root beer.  This brings the families with their kids so we get lots of curious folks wanting to know how we like driving EVs.  

We get more questions about how to install charging at home then in the past indicating serious interest in getting an EV.
