Below is the info for not only the Lacey EVent but also for the EVent
Roderick Wilde is involved with in Port Townsend WA. this coming weekend.
But I really want to speak as to why it is important to support these types
I attended the Seattle Alternatively Fueled Vehicle Fair (I wonder where
they got that name :^D) last weekend at Discovery Park.
There were only about a dozen vehicles being exhibited and I was skeptical
as to how many folks might attend.
we were swamped with folks who were very hungry for the info, I talked
pretty much continuously to all types of folks that were eager to learn as
did the other exhibitors. All three local TV networks were there and shot a
lot of footage, there was substantial print and radio media too. All this
for maybe 12 vehicles.
Point being- EVs (and other alternatives to gasoline) appear to be hotter
right now than they have been since the fuel crisis of the 70s, Joe Sixpak
is hungry for the info. As fuel prices continue to rise there will be more
and more interest. I believe we need to strike while the iron is hot and do
whatever we can to help promote the adoption of this technology.
If any OEVA folks can manage to drag themselves and/or their EVs out to any
or all of the upcoming EVents, PLEASE DO!
