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.
Saturday June 7, 9:30 - 4:30, on the Saturday at the end of Canada's
Clean Air Week, the public is invited to the 13th Annual
Ride-Electric-Vehicles (REV) show. This year's event will be at the

Burnaby Lake. Examine close up and ride in all kinds of electric
vehicles. See converted regular cars, commercially built scooters and
bikes, motorcycles and even motorized furniture. Come ask questions,
that's what it's all about - your eco awareness and education ! Since we
are a volunteer group, earth-saving volunteers are always welcome! The
event, the advice and the rides are FREE !

Post event by Dave
Deb and I went up to Vancouver saturday for their annual Ride EV event, REV.
Crossing the border going up was a breeze, coming back it took 45 minutes.
I didn't see that many rides being given. they had part of the parking area blocked off where the Detroit Electric was running and a fella with really fun looking go-kart was taking laps and sliding around turns. and e-bikes all over the place.
There were a coupla of "factory" moto-cross e-bikes (not conversions), a converted Yamaha FZ600 road bike running 22 ThunderSky 90ah batteries. An E-box, another Scion converted by CAN-EV with 160ah ThunderSky batteries. Two very nice looking Fieros, one on its maiden voyage. Two S10's, a Solectria Force (Geo) with the larger 130ah Valence batteries (13). I've got a 102meg of pictures to put up on the website if I can figure out how to get them there. Probably just give 'em to Ryan ;^).
I met Randy Holmquist of CAN-EV he had some interesting figures concerning S10 kit sales... 1 a month for the last 17 years, 1 a week starting last fall/eary this year. A 3 week stretch last month of 1 a day. now settled down to about 2 a week.
There were at least 2 e-bikes there with hybrid packs, that is ultra-caps and batteries. Or maybe they were regular capacitors.
It was a fun event. When I go next year I'm taking Amtrak staying over night in Vancouver and then taking the Skytrain to Burnaby assuming it's held in the same location and Amtrak is still running. :^)
Steve, I think SEVA needs to re-instate the EV rides for the public event...
Can we get one together for late August or even Sept?? Let's revive Gasless at Gasworks
Some photos follow...
took a wrong t*rn perhaps? (note the exhaust pipes)
