Summer Celebration Wednesday, July 12th, 11-2pm

Here's the Summer Celebration Flyer here.  A car entry form is here.

Leon Young Service Center is at 1521 Handcock Expy, Colorado Springs. The event location is outlined below, with the red area being the current location of alternative car display. The South edge of the blue area will be a classic car show area, so plenty of options to chat with gearhead, and advocate for EVs with those who set electric rates and policies.

I’ll be out of town on the day, but Tara Kelly and Rahul Subramanian will be manning the tent for alternate vehicles.

Software update + repair

I had a Tesla Ranger (Riley Wolf was his name) visit my humble abode and repair my car door. He will be working in/near Colorado Springs in the foreseeable future. Not only did he take apart my door and retrieve the handle backing material that had fallen down in the door bottom, but he reset the software module that was preventing a firmware upgrade. It's all good!

Software update fail

Anyone ever have a software fail on their Tesla? I called customer service and they say I'll get another update within 48 hours. Otherwise, I own a nice looking planter. If you put up the hatchback the plants in your car get lots of rain and sunshine.
-Wilson H

UPDATE: I didn't get a software update so I've scheduled a trip to the Tesla Service Center in Denver. The car is completely driveable. No, I didn't turn my car into a planter, that's called Webmaster Humor. I also have a small item I want Tesla to fix on a window so the trip to the Service Center isn't a bad thing to do.

Happy Summer, everyone!  Our next Denver Tesla Club meeting will be held on Saturday, June 24th at the home of Erik Strait.  Erik not only runs, but he has easily the coolest garage in Colorado.  The meeting will be held in the afternoon so we will have a barbecue along with our regular, highly organized agenda.
