    Hi everyone, Just a note that we are in the works of setting up a BC Tesla Owners Group/Club. The parties (meetings just sounds so boring) will be on the last Thursday of every month starting January 30th at 7pm. We've been fortunate to secure the Service Center as our location and have some exciting things in store this year that will rival every other owners club out there... :) Yes that is a formal challenge.

    To kick the group off I will be working through a "Ask Why" process to ensure this isn't just another item to add to the calendar. We want there to be a purpose and keep the events fresh and valuable so that it continues to be something you want to attend and want to bring your friends to.

    Sounds great! Is it only for owners or are other interested persoons also allowed in the group?

    This is really great! I had a good time at the Cars & Coffee event yesterday, and I hope this BC Club will be just as fun. It was awesome to see so many S's on the streets, and meet some of you guys. And thanks Tesla Vancouver for offering the SC. :)

    Please count me in. I don't get mine until late Feb so hopefully I will be able to drive it to the second meeting. At that time, I will need any excuse I can find to go for a drive and this sounds like a great one!

    The group will be open to everyone, owners or not. I'm fact it's encouraged to use the opportunity to educate and include non owners too.

    picked up my MS 2 days ago at the Vancouver SC. Robin Peterson (owner advisor) there said she's sending out emails to owners about this BC Owners Club. I told her, yeah I knew about this from the forums, and remembered her name being mentioned here and there. She was super excited! haha

    Too bad I can't make it to the first meeting...

    I recal during the December event that it was agreed we'd meet the last Thursday of the month. That is one week away.... Is there angthing going on?

    I'll have to be there in spirit only most of the time, since Elon hasn't come through with the OTA update turning my car into the James Bond Elite submarine yet. But you never know, timing may align when I'm already in Vancouver on one of those Thursdays; it would be great to meet some more Vancouver owners. Have fun!

    Had to miss the January meeting because of a show; had to miss the February meeting because I'm out of the country. But the March meeting will come two days before my delivery, so I will definitely make the effort!!

    Hey guys,
    I think we need to organize this on our own. Anyone interested in getting this last Thursday of the month thing rolling starting April 24th? Even a pub for a small group for exchanging dinner stories or whatnot. Any suggested locations?

    I should be available on the 24th--I have pretty regular Thursday commitments from now until mid-August, but that date happens to be one I can duck.

    Is there really only 2 of us interested? Out of the 300 or so cars in the province? Wow.

    Oh, I'm interested for sure, but I can't commit to being available as our 2 1/2 year old kid can sometimes be a handful! I'm keeping the date open otherwise.

    I'm interested but won't take the ferry across just for that. If there was a bridge... I'm hoping timing will merge at some future date when we happen to already be in Vancouver.

    Yes, That is completely understandable. Sounds like the beginning of a Vancouver Island club! :)

    Having just finished that phase myself, I totally understand.
