Event Report

Event was cancelled due to Hurricane Irma.

I brought my hand-outs and goodies to the East Coast of Florida and will give them to the organizers of the EVent in Satellite Beach.

Folks in Florida have begged the National Organizers NOT to have the Drive Electric Week in September for years. This is in the middle of hurricane season and we normally are rained out regardless. PLEASE reconsider for next year. This just simply doesn't work for Florida. Sorry.
