Event Report

The event started out low-key but picked up as the day grew. First we had one Zero, eventually two, a Spark, another LEAF, and even some non-participant EVs. We taught visitors about NRG eVgo and about how silent even the electric bikes are. Around 13:30 the first of the #Richmond2Woodbridge rally cars arrived with Richmond organizer Charles Gerena as a BMW i3, then one, then two Tesla Model S, the second, and relay prize winner, Lanny Hartmann, regaled us while taking time out from his busy work at

As things wore down, Charles and I grabbed a pizza and some wings and then I manned the booth until 17:00 when MOM's Organic Market helped clean up. Alas, Supervisor Principi was unable to attend though gave his regards. And there was no time to get a plaque made to recognize Drive Electric Week but overall my first Drive Electric Week event in Manassas was a success and I would say my last in Woodbridge was equally great and the start of something bigger!
