    Starting a thread so folks can chat when they start getting invitations for Seattle. Let's see who gets the invitation first. I heard that the Seattle test drives will be out of the Seattle service center and not Bellevue Square. I wonder what color cars we will get.

    Can a moderator make this thread sticky? BTW, who are the moderators? Is there a list somewhere?

    I stopped by the Bellevue store today...they don't know what colors will be here. They are only expecting 4 cars, as after LA the fleet will be split up.

    Bellevue is certainly not Seattle. Hopefully the tour makes it to the correct side of the pond.

    I believe the test drives are going to originate from the downtown Seattle Tesla store.

    The other day (phone conversation) I was told it will actually be in Seattle. Perhaps not actually at the store?

    In Seattle downtown traffic is not my favorite place to be driving a new unfamiliar car. I don't care how fast it can accelerate and decelerate.

    Would anyone be willing to take me as a passenger to the Seattle event? I know it is a lot to ask for but I will take lots of photos and video. I was at the Fremont event so I don't think I will get invited again :biggrin:

    I'm a little bit worried about the e-mail invitation process. We're R#44 and I received invitations for Freemont and Los Angeles, but nothing for Seattle.

    I didn't respond to the Freemont e-mail and received the Los Angeles invitation just fine. I was under the impression that one could merely wait until an Amped-Up event was closer in physical proximity.

    Since I got worried, I checked the LA invitation more closely and clicked on the "No Thanks" button for the first time and was led to a choice screen that was defaulted to "keep 'em coming" and pressed the confirmation button.

    So, if the choice was defaulted to "keep 'em coming", I wonder why I didn't receive a Seattle invitation? I checked my spam scrubber, and found nothing in the garbage trap, so I am befuddled and a little concerned.

    Seattle, not Bellevue?

    Anyone willing to take on a passenger for the Seattle event? Send me a Private Message!
    I'm saving my test drive for Portland two weeks later.

    I'd fire off an e-mail or call. Sometimes electrons follow undesirable routes.

    I wonder if they are geo-targeting invitations, to fill reservations with "locals" first?
    This would explain the flurry of CDN Sig holders reporting invitations.
