We started bright and early in a very lovely part of Arlington, 8 minutes from Courthouse Metro, a few blocks from I66 and right next to the lovely McCoy Park. We had 3 Model S come for the first shift, while my best helper, Purcell Artis, helped me move our Tesla friends around and Denis Dineen's 5-year old Chevy Volt. Soon after, Dan Hale regaled us with his unique to Virginia, Powder Blue Chevy Spark EV. #CO2Fre was on display next to Purcell's Model S (pictured) for most of the event and Purcell did a great job chatting with folks, while event captain Jeffrey C. Jacobs gave out raffle tickets and coordinated logistics.
Around noon Miriam from Arlington Weekly news came by and recruited Purcell to interview some of our EV drivers including Victor Rodriguez, who arrived in my favourite Focus Electric. Later, Mosiac Videographer Cliff Jacobs stopped by to check us out and Sean Ryan brought his Volt to end the day with us at 17:00.
Special thanks to Anna at MOM's for hosting.
