Event Report

It was a rainy, soggy day which was not good for the event. Yet we got a great spread of cars including a Miata conversion, Smart ED, BMW X5 PHEV along with the usual Nissan and Tesla participants. Not as many people were heading through the next door Farmer's Market as we would have liked, so it turned into sort of a club meeting with like-minded people exchanging ideas. We're already talking about next year. Our local power company representative and a Genius from BMW were exchanging thoughts about how to get dealerships willingly involved. A big thanks to BMW, who were the only dealer to show up despite previous involvement from Nissan and Porsche. City Council candidate Andrew Biviano was in attendance. CBS affiliate KREM2 did a short news piece on the event with a brief interview with me, in which I urged the public to drive an EV. All the ecological and economical talk does not compare to the quiet, powerful sensation of taking one for a spin.
