Before our group gets too large, I'd like to invite San Francisco Bay Area iMiEV owners over to my house for a social get-together. I live in Los Altos Hills, a couple of miles up from Foothill College. We can plan on some pot-luck munchies, pizza (or something healthier), and some liquid refreshments. For those coming a significant distance, I can provide one Level 2 EVSE and at least three more 16A 240vac outlets - two NEMA L6-30, one or two 6-20, and any number of conventional 120vac 5-20 and 5-15 outlets. I have a neighbor with a Leaf so we can mooch off his EVSE as well.
We can have a short meeting, with the following suggested agenda -
1) Introduce ourselves individually
2) What to call ourselves? SF BayMiEVers (pronounced Baymeevers), for example
3) A brief "Hypermiling the iMiEV" presentation
4) Open question/answer discussion on any aspect of the iMiEV
5) Follow-up, if any
Just to get a feel for our numbers and for those who might be interested in coming and what day/time availability might be suitable, either chime in on this thread or else let me know with a PM. After I get some feedback we can set something up (or some alternative) and we can take it from there.
