    Hello Josh,

    SO here is the event I told you about in my last email to you that the club is formally invited to and its a major one. This is event is called Treat or Treat, Florida Tech Residence Life's annual Halloween program. Last year this event, hosted on the Florida Tech campus, attracted over 1,400 people so it could be fantastic exposure for the club. There are five haunted houses that we construct inside our residence halls for guests, each themed after a movie or television show, there is candy, games, food, music, live performances, and pumpkins. We would love to have some EV's out there as well, maybe 4 - 5 with your own informational tent. If you do come we ask that you wear costumes.

    This event is Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm…

This year’s celebration of the birthday of the city of Satellite Beach will have a different theme: Under the Big Top.  So make sure to come dressed as a circus related person like a lion tamer or ringmaster.  Or in our case we’ll try to fit as many people as possible into an EV like a Clown Car Competition!  Try to stump the chump by asking us all of your burning questions about driving electric.

Saturday March 12, 2016 10 am – 2 pm

At the David R. Schechter Center in Satellite Beach.  From the Satellite Beach Rec Department website:  “March 12    Big Truck Day.  So many BIG trucks – so little time! Fire trucks, dump trucks, cement mixer and more will be on hand for kids to explore, climb on, sit in and experience what it’s like to be in the driver’s seat. An adult must accompany kids. This FREE event is held in the parking lot of DRS Community Center from 10am-2pm. Refreshments will be available for purchase from the SB Lions Club.” We were invited by the city to bring some electric cars to this event.  We think having the big difference in big trucks vs. electric cars will help the major benefits of driving electric that we explain to the attendees better stick in their mind.  So bring the whole family and climb up in the big trucks then climb in the electric cars.  And don’t forget to ask us all about driving electric!  We’ll tell you exactly what to expect since we’ve been driving them for years.

Sunday March 6, 2016 2-4 pm = First Sunday of the Month Meet Up
