Your event details and description text goes here.
Next simply add whatever details and links you like to the page. Use the Show preview to see what you have created and finally click Save page and you are done. You and anyone else can edit the page later to add more details. The new EVent page you help create can grow more detailed, after the event photos can be added or accounts of how the event went.

If there are more than one event on a given day, then make the == Header == at the top of the page include a short description of both events so that they will both appear in the summary for that day. Then create two or more === Sub Headers === (Notice the 3 = signs instead of 2) for each separate event on that day.
== First EVent & Another EVent Also ==
=== First EVent ===
First Event details and description text goes here.
===Another EVent Also===
Details for the another event also go right here.
You can also add ==== Sub Sub Headers ==== for an event if there is a lot of information for that event, perhaps someone might want to add a ==== Photos ==== section.
The simplest way to add photos is to upload them to the site (you may need to ask for an account to do this). Take a look at the Photos page for a list of EVents that had photos added.
Then just list them in a gallery block.

Additional [[Category:]] tags can be added to the top of the page, we do not use many categories at the moment, but they help to organize pages and help visitors find related pages. For example there might be a Tesla Category and any event with a Tesla at it could have the Tesla category.
CalCars in Seattle
CalCars Founder Felix Kramer and Technology Lead Ron Gremban are driving North.
Steve Lough writes:
Finally, folks in the Pacific North West got a "Hands ON - First Hand
look at California Cars Initiative's "Prius PLUS" This Monday, 11/14.
Felix Kramer, the founder of CalCars, and Ron Gremban one of their lead
engineers, drove their 100 mpg Prius on to the court yard of Seattle
City Light. With TV cameras blazing, and Radio Microphones on "RECORD"
several dozen dignitaries and environmental types showed up for the
press conference. Seattle City Mayors office was represented, along with
City Light, the Mayors Task force on the Environment, City council
members, Puget Sound Clean Cities Org., Seattle Electric Vehicle
Association, and many more too numerous to mention.
Local media coverage was good, and very positive, but as always could
have been longer, and more detailed.
After the News Conference, the car traveled to South West Seattle to
South Seattle Community College, where one of the States largest
Automotive programs is taught, and the students got a chance to see the
car and ask more technical questions.
Then it was off to Wenatchee Washington in Eastern Washington for a
conference to kick-start a Pug-In Hybrid program much like what Austin
Texas is currently working on, where cars might be modified on a near
assembly line like basis, for those who can NOT Wait for Toyota to
create Plug-In hybrids off their own assembly lines.
On behalf of the Seattle EV Association, we sincerely Thank Felix and
company for their visit to the Pacific North West, and wish them well in
all their most important work.
