Event Report

We were going to run the movie "What is the Electric Car?" (based on the book with the same name), but had technical difficulties. Instead we had a Q&A panel with the director, co-author of the book, and another cast member from the film.
We had several different types of vehicles, including: plug in electric, plug in hybrid, hydrogen fuel cell and CNG powered.
Our event was a clean air car show and green expo, and so gave away an electric lawn mower donated by South Coast Air Quality Maintenance District.
We'll be posting photos to our Facebook later this week.
