San Francisco BayMiEVers

Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:08 pm

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.

Sounds lovely - we're interested - but with two small kids I can never be sure of when will work!

Fantastic advice. Always nice to see someone who has come out the other side?

OK, the weather for this coming Saturday March 3 is looking good, and a number of you had expressed a preference for Saturdays.
If you could PM me with your time and munchies-to-bring preferences and your contact information I will send you directions on how to get to my house and the time. I'm thinking mid-morning to mid-afternoon.
Anyone have a projector for the presentation?

PM Sent. :P

I can borrow/bring an old NEC DLP a projector for the presentation. If anyone has a newer projector, it would most likely be better than this old one.

OK, the get-together is scheduled for 10:00am this coming Saturday, 3 March, in Los Altos Hills. Confirmed coming are jennrod12, jjlink, and WeeJohn, with possibly another i-MiEV owner from San Jose. Haven't heard back from MtnViewMark. In addition to comparing notes and socializing, we'll be having brunch munchies with coffee and a brief meeting. Anyone else interested please PM me. Thanks.
