Sorry for being so tardy with the report. Thank you Bruce Sherry for the great data sheet on the "Great Battery Load Test" I am still over heated from all the kilowatts which went up on the test ( just kidding)
Actually, I had an outline for the meeting which never got used.
We had 25 folks show up, but best of all 3 or 4 NEW members and friends. This is VERY GOOD. NEW BLood. New Car Projects ! Lets keep em happy. ( hope they all join our SEVA e-mail list )
MOST important: Some one must STEP UP to the plate and co-ordinate our involvement in the Earth Day celebrations and Alt. Vehicle Show-n-Tell at Magnuson Park on April 23rd. The Seattle Parks and Recreation Environmental Learning Center Unit is hosting an alternatively fueled vehicle rally at Warren G. Magnuson Park (formerly known as Sand Point) for earth month on Saturday, April 23rd from 10 am-2 pm. (Can you believe I will not be there !!! I will be in S P A I N !! and I didn't get round to telling everyone THAT at the MEETING !!!
Today, Friday 3/11, Steve Mayeda, of MC Electric and I drove down to Tacoma, to speak on EVs and NEVs to a group of 20 or so Fleet Operators from all over the state. Also showed them the video of Mazda-vs-Viper. They LOVED it. Many fleets have had a few electrics, like Ford Ranger EVs, and of course several Toyota Priussss.ss Guy from City of Seattle said they have over 60 on order. Told them all about Prius + ( Plug in Hybrids ) And I think MC Electric got a lead on a NEV sale.
Anyway, S P A I N I will keep my eye open for EVs in Europe. You folks got to come up with my replacement for the April 12th meeting.
Keep me informed....
