Event Report

This event was the first, large‐scale Ride & Drive held by the new, still‐in‐formation DET chapter Drive Electric Greater Clarksville (DEGC.) Local power company CDE Lightband (the municipal LPC for Clarksville) was the host and main organizer of the event; chapter Co‐chair JoAnn McIntosh helped bring in EVs and handled some other event tasks. It was an excellent event even though we had to implement Venue Plan B due to inclement weather. Great impact on folks from the area coming to learn about EVs, and thanks to a wonderful collection of EV owners who came to relate their own experiences as EV drivers, and show or allow others to see/ride/drive their cars.
