Tesla Rally to Custer, SD - registration open

The registration to the annual Tesla Rally is now open (May 18, 19 and 20), click here for early registration. If you're going, also get your hotel registration made as the hotels fill up rather quickly.

Concours d'Elegance registration open!

One of the largest car shows of the year is the Concours d'Elegance in Littleton, CO. Our club was there last year with a great turnout. Even if you don't want to exhibit your car, it's a great show with high-dollar vehicles. The registration is now open ( http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?m=1102266679434&ca=719bbae1-c381-4fff-a7c3-45d4e4e572a4 ) and if you're considering going, get ready to register.

Great trip to Poncha Springs, CO

Several members of the CSEVC and the Denver Tesla Club made a trip to the new Tesla Supercharger in Poncha Springs, CO. The DTC started out from the Park Meadows Supercharger about 8:00am and met at the Colorado Springs SC at 9:15am. Lunch was at Tony's Restaurant and then everyone departed on their own way back. We met several new members on the trip, glad to have you!

Our club's first Model 3!

Congratulations to our club founders, Mac and BJ McCauley, on taking delivery of their new Tesla Model 3. Several club members attended the delivery party: Andrew S., Sean M., Dan R., Chaz C. and myself. I had never seen a Model 3 until then! Enjoy the photos, especially the one of Andrew S. amusing himself with my efforts to take a photo.

EV Presentation

I got this message for broadcast on our blog (slightly edited for updates):

My name is Garrett Garner-Wells and I'm the director of Environment Colorado. 

I'll be in the Springs next Thursday, Feb. 22 to release a new report on EV infrastructure policy at 11am at the EV charging station on Colorado College's campus (830 N Nevada Ave). The report will detail the number of EVs we expect to see on the road in the Springs by 2030 and provide a best practices framework for the city and utility to consider as they prepare for this growth.

I look forward to talking more!

-Garrett

Celebrity endorsement of EVs - Drew Scott of HGTV

Drew Scott of HGTV apparently likes his EV so much that he has it shipped to each location he films rather than rent an ICE vehicle. Read about it here.
