New logo chosen!

I'm callin' it - by a 50% margin, our new club logo is "3f". Thanks again to our club member, Chaz Clark, for giving us such a wide selection of logos to choose from. Thanks everyone for responding to our bulk email asking for your votes.

Happy New Year!

New Members - Keith and Kristin Woestehoff

Hello and Happy New Year's Eve. My wife and I just bought a new Tesla model S 75 D. We also own a 2013 Lexus 450H. We live in Palmer Lake, Colorado and would like to join the local EV club. The Tesla is the most amazing car we have ever driven. We look forward to meeting other members and sharing our enthusiasm. 
When Kristin and I went to the Park Meadows Mall to test drive a Tesla, we met a couple in the parking lot by the Super Chargers. They were thinking about trading their model S for a model X. Since they were owners, naturally we had lots of questions and talked for a while. They live in Colorado Springs. I think his name was David but not sure. Since we were prospective buyers and live in El Paso county, he gave us a business card for the Colorado Springs EV Club. After test driving, my wife and I both said OMG, we have to have one and the rest is history. 

I have made visits to the CSEVC web site.  Lots of good information.

Gigafactory in 2018?

I'm just throwing out an idea...me and the missus are not going to Custer, SD this year for the rally (we've been twice). We're planning a visit to both the Gigafactory in Nevada and the assembly plant in Fremont, CA. We have friends in the Bay area so we'll stay an extra day or so after the Fremont factory tour. If you're interested in caravaning to Sparks, NV and Fremont, CA in 2018 (doesn't have to be the same time as Custer), speak up. I already have one other Tesla owner expressing interest. I think we'd drive together to the Gigafactory, then the next day to the Fremont factory, then everyone find their own way home. Whatcha think?
