Are you a pinball wizard? Given we're in the colder months now, we found something to do inside for our February meetup. MOM's will present a little introduction (at around 11 AM) about their purpose and history, then set us loose in their pinball lounge, a unique feature of this new location in College Park, MD (located in the old REI). We can also enjoy their Witches' Brew Coffee Bar and Naked Lunch All Organic Vegetarian Eatery. Refreshments are allowed in the pinball lounge, just not on top of the machines. We've always been supportive of MOM's as they have supported area electric car organizations with donations and charging stations. And just to be clear, they are still waiting on the new charging stations to be installed at this location. A listing of their many pinball selections ($.50 per play)... https://pinside.com/pinball/map/where-to-play/11547-mom-s-organic-market-college-park-md We may run some type of tournament if we can figure out a way to do it.
***LUNCH PROVIDED*** CSM is hosting a LEGO Championship robotics event on April 6th and they've asked us again if we could showcase some electric vehicles. If you are closer to Southern Maryland this event is for you! If not, use one of our fine charging stations in the area, before or after the event. Drinks and lunch will be sponsored by CSM (PE building, room 120B). Please join us and give back to the Community by sharing your experiences with your EV(s)! Hundreds of students and parents will be in attendance. CSM put us on their official schedule from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM, but we officially start the meetup at 10:30 AM. I will be there earlier, and you are also welcome to arrive earlier. This event is a good one to get kids interested in robotics. We'll be in parking Lot 3, across from the ST Building.

EatWell Natural Farm is a 13 acre farm in La Plata, MD owned and operated by EatWell DC. Most of their produce goes to the six EatWell DC restaurants in Washington DC: Grillfish, Logan Tavern, Commissary, The Pig, The Bird, and The Charles. They grow a wide variety of seasonal vegetables and fruits without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides. They try to work with nature to improve the soil using crop rotation, cover crops, compost and mulch. Organic matter from the restaurants is brought back to the farm and composted to complete the cycle. After the tour, we will caravan over to The Charles (a new EatWell DC restaurant) for lunch, in the Town of La Plata (417 Charles St, La Plata, MD 20646).
