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.

Rolling Thunder Rally

Short notice for the Rolling Thunder rally at Magnuson Park, this Saturday, will be having Ed Begley Jr. (EV ENThusiast !!) as a guest speaker at 5 pm Also other transportation folks will have booths too.

Kendra Williams (kendrawb -at-, the Tabling Coordinator said: We would be delighted to have an electric vehicle or two on display at the Rolling Thunder Festival. If you just want park the vehicles we will try and find a space either at the front gate parking lot or along the access road inside the festival. If you plan on sticking by the cars and talking to people, you may want to bring a canopy or some sun protection. I will be at the front gate checking in tablers. You can ask for me.

Directions: Driving North on Sand Point Way NE, take the NE 74th St entrance into Magnuson Park and look for the signs. We will be on the playfield just about a block into the park, on the right.

Steves Post on the EVent:

First I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Mark, of MC Electric for spending his whole Saturday in the HOT SUN with me. It would have been quite an EV disaster with out him and his blue canopy, for all I had brought was a small picnic table umbrella. The vehicle he brought, a green mini-Hummer Look-Alike NEV, was quite a HIT with the folks too. I dreamed up the phrase, " This Hummer really HUMMMMMMSS.... "

I thought the general public turn out was shy for all the effort and some 2 dozen booths, and displays which everyone put into the event.

Ed Bagley Jr. was very gracious. (SEE OUR PICTURE ) and I was able to give him a quick run down of what SEVA had been doing the last 25 years.

His speech before the whole gathering was on sustainable simplicity, and... " If you can not afford to do a complete solar house, or buy an Electric Car, at least do what you can afford. Pick the low hanging fruit. Buy some compact fluorescent bulbs. Ride the Bus, buy a bicycle.. Don't give UP. Progress is being made. There are 4 times more cars in LA county than 20 years ago, yet Ozone emissions are HALF" Of course he spoke very highly of Electric Vehicles over and over again. I am going to try and find his e-mail address so we can keep in contact.
