Event Report

This was the 1st year event in Corpus Christi, which is a town many people work at the oil refineries. I was happy with the number of cars and people that showed up this year. I hope to triple the number for next year's event. Only one dealer about 15 miles away even sells plug-in vehicles and they did not bring any. I stopped by every new car dealer and even the Nissan dealer doesn't sell Nissan LEAFs. The people who attended had good questions and an interest in EVs. I am hoping some of them show up with their own EVs next year.

One TV station did an interview with me and ran the story on the news.

Photo to come later. A friend did the photos.
