Event Report

We had Bruce's Z3 Conversion and 4 LEAFs as well as Victor and his Ford Focus Electric and a Tesla Model S. It was nice weather and windy but despite this the Frisbees just couldn't move. These items are definitely not popular and I can't give them away. Bruce gave one test drive in his Z3 but the driver scraped the lower bumper while parking. Fortunately we could spot no damage. Most folks couldn't stay past noon but Victor stayed quite late with his Focus Electric and Bruce and I with #CO2Fre manned the event until the end. We think we sold one Plugin Prius. And the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema was very supportive and loaned us a table for all our literature. All in all, a nice, low-key event in a very new, EV-friendly location.

Event Description


Join us for an Electric Car and a panel of EV drivers to answer your questions about what it's like to drive an electric car.  This will be an informal gathering not in the theatre.

I'm very sorry but in the end I'm not able to provide you the screening as planned but we will meet in front of the theatre and the Drafthouse is expecting us but doesn't think the movie would garner enough interest from the general public to warrant a proper screening.  My sincerest apologies to everyone.  Sorry about that.

Hope to see you anyway.
