Calling all Teslas! April 13, 2016 event needs to showcase EVs...

One of our members, Kyle Lisek, sent me a request this week asking if our club could get at least one Tesla to display at the UCCS campus on Wednesday, April 13. I said we could, but we need to see who and when our members can assist.

I've asked Kyle for information about having cars there in shifts so no one person has to tie up their day sitting next to a car. I can be on-site from 2:00pm until 4:30pm, but we need at least one Tesla earlier than that.

Here's Kyle's original email. Please see the bottom of this post for the flyer attached.

I hope you are doing well!

Please see the attached email from the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs Campus Sustainability Team.  On April 13th, UCCS is having a sustainable transportation event and have asked me to work on getting environmentally friendly transportation technology companies to come display/talk about their vehicles or technologies. 

While we are working to get some larger companies, to me, it sounded like UCCS’s biggest concern was having a Tesla on display at the event.  I thought I would reach out to you and the CSEVC to see if this was something you guys might be interested in attending and displaying one of your Tesla’s at?  You would have a table/ booth for the CSEVC and free entry and food during the event on April 13th.  Student, faculty, staff and attendees will just want to look at the vehicles (no driving) and talk with the owners about them. 

I can of course get you any information you need, but I wanted to see if this might be something of interest to the group before I look at filling up the rest of these vehicle spots that are needed.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

  1. So far, 3 folks have agreed to display their Teslas!

  2. If u need more I would be happy to bring mine by as well

    1. Thanks, Peter. I'm meeting with UCCS this Wednesday to discuss how many vehicles we need, where they'll be, etc. I very much appreciate the offer as the more we have the easier it is for everyone. They've also asked for variety, not just Teslas. I'll let everyone know after Wednesday!
