    Trying to organize a meetup for Saturday, August 24th, probably in the Northern Cincinnati area to make it convenient for Dayton-area owners.

    Anyone have suggestions as to a location? And preferences for time? Afternoon? Evening? Surely not morning...surely.

    If I actually owned a Tesla, I would be there, but alas, my Volt really would not fit in :(

    I'm probably gonna be out of town. If not, I'm in. Is Colerain too far South? Quaker Steak and Lube has plenty of parking and good inexpensive pub food.

    I could pick Rifleman up on the way.

    Thanks Al, I may take you up on that. Also, if anyone from Indiana wants to attend, but is suffering from range anxiety, I would be happy to let anyone in need of a charge stop by my house in Harrison (less than 1 mile off of I-74) and use my 14-50 outlet.

    Al, do you know Andrew Gilmore? He's a Model S owner up in Dayton, retired from the USAF. I suspect you two would have a lot to chat about. I sent him an email about the meetup...haven't heard back from him yet.

    Need to check the calendar, but would be interested. Coming from the North of Dayton - Clayton Ohio. Last time we had a great get together in Columbus. I would suggest putting the information on the Ohio Facebook page. Wondering if Andrew Gilmore has a white Model S. My wife says she's seen one in the Dayton area a couple of times and it was a white one.

    Great, Kent! Yes, Andrew's MS is white. He volunteers at the USAF Museum, as that was the first place I saw his car.

    Don't recognize the name. I'd love to meet everyone. That's really what it's all about for me. Meeting folks from the forum. I've only met 2 forum members in 4 years of "lurking."

    Alas, my plans to leave town on the 22nd are still in place. It's a longshot for me but if plans change I will definitely attend.

    This sounds like a great idea. I can meet on the 24th. Just let me know where and when.

    I should be able to make it. No plans that day.

    The further south the better. :)

    I'll try to figure out a place that is as close to everyone as possible. If you're coming from significantly outside the I-275 loop, either post here where from or email me ( [email protected] ) and I'll see if I can do a quick and dirty minimax optimization.

    OK, based on folks coming from all over -- Dayton, Eastern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, near Columbus, Eastern Cincinnati -- somewhere around the I-275/I-75 interchange near Sharonville/Springdale seems like a reasonable mid-point. One suggestion was Dave & Buster's, as it has food for every taste and a whopping huge parking lot (ding-proof spots for everyone!), but other suggestions are welcome.

    Also, preferences about time? Lunch? Dinner? Afternoon?

    When: Saturday, August 24th, 5:30pm - ?

    Where: Parking lot of Dave & Buster's in Springdale: 11775 Commons Dr., Springdale, OH 45246

    After admiring each other's cars for a bit, those interested in dinner can go inside for a meal. Kids are welcome.

    Looks like there will be quite a bunch of Tesla owners -- both Model S and Roadsters represented this coming Saturday. The welcome mat is out for any who want to attend. See details a few comments above this one.

    I may stop by in my Volt to meet my fellow Tesla enthusiasts. My offer to anyone coming from Indiana to use my 14-50 in Harrison if you are pushing your round trip range still stands as well.
