October 14th 2008 Meeting
October 14th SEVA Meeting
WELL !!! Quite a turn out for a cold October evening. And we had a very interesting meeting
Thanks Stephen Johnsen for printing and sending out our meeting schedule
We had video and slide presentations on Tesla in Bellevue, Dave Cloud and daughter’s 100 mph record breaking run on the Salt Flats, John McGowan’s presentation on the Warp DC Motor Plant, and although it took a bit to find a lap top that would run it, or extract it from the wi-fi Church router… a presentation about Chris Pain’s Birthday Party/Plug-In-America Fund raiser in LA on 9/27.. There were hundreds of EV folks from all over California. They had the GM – Volt Production Prototype, and a Tesla on display, and valet service up and down the LA hills via a whole FLEET of Rav4EV’s Dan Davids, who is PIA’s Treasurer gave the report. We also saw a VCR replay of the recent 12 minute segment on CBS- 60Minutes on EVs thanks to Guy the Sound guy..
Barbara gave a report on up coming classes through So.Sea.Com.College. Any one interested is reminded to check out the information on the SEVA Web Site.
Dave Cloud as well as John McGowan spoke on Electric Motors. Good questions from the audience on Tax Breaks for EV’s and The Saxtons brought us up to date on TESLA News..
Several folks were troubled by the fact that our connections to this video did not go smoothly, even though we had plenty to talk about while we were waiting. So the suggestion has been made to try and pre-determine the compatibility of AV presentations thru our Sound Guy… “Guy” Sounds like a good idea to me..
Up coming Events… would be the Seattle International Auto Show. For the first time in decades, show management is giving Big Breaks to clean transportation folks like Green Car Co, and MC-EV . Both outfits will need folks to help out. It would mean a FREE PASS, and a chance to talk to hundreds of folks about EVs and about SEVA. I will be volunteering as much as I can… It is what I do….
See ya Soon…
