== Short Name for EVent ==
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. All of this will be archived for future generations to see what kind of amazing fun we have had, heck go check out some past EVent pages now (Tip: Click on any pages edit link to see how easy they are to create).

Need more advanced editing tips?                         Click the [show] link to the right >>

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.

Cancer Walk Report

Sunday Oct 1, Magnuson Park,

I got there at about 6:40am after an uneventful 6.2 mile drive.

2hours later the Honda was charged up and on the way to it's station about mid
course of the 5K Walk/Run.  I drove up and down the paved portion for about 6.6
miles total without running over or gassing any of the walkers.  I think it went
pretty well.  Being busy driving and avoiding running anyone over I didn't get
much chance to evangelize or hand out fliers.  but I had some plastered to the car
and under the windshield. About half of them dissappeared, hopefully into the
hands of receptive souls.

Back in the hanger for another 2hour charge before heading home.  Two kinda sour
notes to end the day.  First this event drew probably 2-3 thousand people. 
Judging by the literature that was THROWN AWAY, NOT RECYCLED it looks like they
planned for 5 times that many.  A dozen upopened boxes of probably 500-1000 60
page magazines were just tossed into the dumpster.  There was no attempt to
recycle anything.  I was outraged by that and still am.  ;^(   given that we
residents are fined for having any recyclable scrap in our garbage.  I think
there's some call(s)to the city/county/organizers in my future.

The second sour note happened just as I was about to unplug and head home, would
that I would've closed my book 2 minutes sooner.  A high spirited 10 year old kid
slammed into the Honda with a HomeDepot style flatbed pushcart.  Gave me a nasty
jolt as I was facing the other way and didn't see it coming. Fortunately the dent
being smooth and not a crease was easily pushed out with my hand.   I missed a
good educational opportunity with the kid though.  I should've had him push the
dent out.  He would've remembered both the consequences of his reckless actions a
little longer and perhaps learned something usefull early in his life...  oh well
there's next year perhaps ... but god spare me the 10yr olds!
