Final status: THE TRIP IS ON FOR SATURDAY, Nov. 13, 2021

Our club is going to visit a new Level 3 charger (CCS/Chademo) in Walsenberg, CO on Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021. Our club member, Curtis Claar, runs a company named EV Trail ( http://www.evtrail.com/ ) that put helped put in the new charger in Walsenburg. The new dual-station charger is at George's Drive Inn, 564 US-85 #87, Walsenburg, CO 81089. There are two CCS/Chademo charging stations and 2 additional J1772 charging points (11 kW/h) for a total of 4 simultaneous charging ports. The map locator for George's is https://goo.gl/maps/U69xN8GReVMcMJYR6 . 

Several car club members are departing from Sams Club in Colorado Springs, near the S. Academy Blvd. exit off I-25 this Saturday (Nov. 13). The Sam's Club is located at 4385 Venetucci Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80906, and the map locator for the EA charger is https://goo.gl/maps/WwHECkM2yRTvRUCk6 . We will leave at 10:00am from the Electrify America charging station in the Sam's Club parking lot. 

This trip is weather-dependent. The final decision to go/reschedule will be made by 10:00am, Friday November 12, 2021. Please check back here for the final update. If weather is a problem, we will reschedule once to the next Saturday. If that fails, we'll go another time.

All cleaned up!

 As part of moving to a new laptop, I was forced to export/import all my email addresses to the new email program I use. I then compared all the addresses to what I have on file for the CSEVC mailing list and found several issues.

About a dozen of our members haven't been getting our emails, either because they've changed email addresses (e.g., moved jobs) or their email systems rejected our messages enough times that Mailchimp has given up on sending messages to that address. I have contacted as many of those individuals as I can to see if we can fix the problem.

One common issue is that anyone using a CenturyLink.net email address is getting rejected. For some reason, CenturyLink.net thinks our Mailchimp server is on a "blacklist". I'm not sure anyone in particular is going to be able to fix that with them, so I suggest you create a new email address at GMAIL for our newsletter and messages. Who knows how many emails you are missing due to their system?

If you have changed emails lately, or are sending our messages to an address that you don't check frequently, please update your information with me at info AT CSEVC.COM .
