This a a nice little Earth Day event.  They setup a lot of tents to keep people in the shade as much as possible and they had a lot of booths setup with a wide range of things.  We were able to get 3 Electric Cars; Jared’s Fiero, Don’s Jeep and Neil’s Golf;  there was also Paul’s scooter and Mike’s range extender trailer.   Jared brought a few EV components to put out for display and Paul had his great demo there and with fully charged batteries this time (just poking fun at you Paul).  We had quite a few hands there to help out and we got to talk to a few quite a few people there.

We even met some very interesting people; one that really stick out is the family who is building the SUNN solar powered car with students.  He has an entire classes on understanding the electronics for 1st – 7th grades and for high school’ers they build the SUNN solar powered car.   I hope we will be able to help them in the future.

All in all I think it was a great little event, we got lucky with good weather and we had a good turnout.  We hope they will have another event next year and that we are invited again.
