What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
If I've learned anything while driving my clean, silent Electric Car, it's that education is the main stumbling block of EVs becoming main stream today. Not range, not charging infrastructure, not even purchase price ... just insufficient availability to up to date information on the financial and personal and environmental advantages of driving a superior vehicle.
So, I'm planning a special non- EVers gathering, virtually, of course, via Zoom, this Tuesday evening (MAR. 23) at 7 PM at ... Www.Zoom.us/j/[masked] , directed particularly towards non- EVers.
This is a special gathering for the edification of non- EVers. I would like to have a few EVers on the call who have experienced first hand the pleasures of driving EVs and can collectively answer all of our non - EVer's questions.
Please invite your non- EV drivers to this special meeting for them.
"See" you this evening ... Stay healthy ... drive clean ...
"Think Outside the Pump! "
I'm sure by now, you have heard Ron's news that he's closing up shop in Ontario and moving to Canmore, Alberta. He has his son there and his wife, Ruth, has her father. His target move date is around July 1st.
An understatement is that we'll miss him ... however, if this pandemic has taught us anything, it's "Zoom"! This means that Ron will always be only a Zoom away.
Cara Clairman, of Plug n'Drive and the EV Discovery Centre (EVDC), has invited us to join her Zoom party with the following invitation:
"Although we are sad to see him go, we are also excited for him (and a little envious!) as he and his wife Ruth begin this next phase of their life. Luckily we have learned this year how easy it can be to stay in touch virtually!
"I have heard from some of you already wanting to wish Ron well. I wish we could host a big party for him! Unfortunately, since that is still not possible, we will have to settle for zoom. Please join us to raise a glass to Ron and Ruth."
It's FIA Formula E all electric racing season again ... but with pandemic undertones. No firm dates are available yet for North America's schedule. But think about the possibilities. Note: the attached date is Not specific yet. Just a place holder.
Watch the virtually silent all electric FIA Formula E style cars race through city streets ... with no ear plugs required.
Getting to the circuit As part of your ticket there is a free shuttle bus to the venue from Barclays Center and Carroll Gardens. For cyclists a free bicycle valet is provided on site so you can park your bicycle safely. There is also a Citibike Station near to the entrance that will be manned to ensure there are open docking stations for your bicycle. For ride-shares including Uber, Lyft and NYC taxicabs, there will be a specified drop-off and pickup lane close to the venue entrances. The B61 bus takes you to many stops along VanBrunt street and close to multiple entrances for the venue. COVID Update: (June/ 2020)

Obviously, we also have to consider the border and a probable 14-day isolation on your return. For these reasons, I'm going to NOT consider this an official group event and suggest that you make your own decision about attending this event. However, definitely go to their website and read what they were planning to do. I've attended two of their events in the past and they are a wonderful introduction and encouragement of this electric technology and if the pandemic were not in the way, I would support their clean, quiet racing.
