Event Report

We had the mayors of the region all sign a proclamation declaring it Drive Electric Week. We made posters of this proclamation and distributed them to the local city halls for display all week long. It was sunny and pleasant, but very windy so not very helpful for printed materials. Mainly it was a drive in "car show." My own personal highlight was when a dad had is two kids laying flat on their backs looking and pointing out the batteries under the car!

Car Breakdown:
3 Nissan Leafs
1 Mitsubishi iMiev
1 Tesla S

(Not counted is 1 e-85 car that showed up that we welcomed to the event since they drove several hundred miles to display)
