Event Report

Event was planned very last minute with only two weeks to go. Received very no material from NDEW or Nissan because it was too late. Got some NDEW banners and signs from Charles Gerena-Drive ElectricRVA in Richmond VA. Got some material to hand out from Alleyn Haynerd-Virginia Clean Cities. Got a few last minute companies to show up from Solar Services, Sierra Club, and Surfrider Foundation. Was too late to get any dealers to bring test drive cars. The closest Chevy dealer didn't have any Volts anyway. The closes BMW dealer didn't have any i3's but was kind enough to let their "i-genius" come by with an X540e. Next year I plan t0 have all the dealers there an many local "related" businesses.
