    If you'd like to enter a fun event, and help a good cause, check out the Rally 4 Memories now in its fifth year. The 2016 version will go from Victoria BC to Painter's Lodge in Campbell River on Saturday May 21st. Your entry fee of $600 per car (based on 2 people, driver & navigator) includes:
    • A tax receipt sent to all participants
    Driver's meeting kick-off at Max Furniture in Victoria
    Wine tasting at a vineyard enroute
    Spirit tasting at an island distillery
    • TWO night's accommodation in an ocean view room at Painter’s Lodge
    • Arrival reception including drinks & appetizers
    • A delicious dinner prepared exclusively for the event
    • A selection of Silent Auction items to bid on

    • And, of course, lunch mid-Island. This year the rally is hosted by Smoke'N Water in Nanoose Bay.

    My wife and I entered the 2014 event to Tofino at the last minute, having heard about it a couple of days before on the news. We were the only Tesla amongst a sea of Mercedes, Jaguars, Porsches and the like. The other participants were very friendly. In the 2015 event, a couple from Seattle also brought their Tesla Model S to participate in the rally. Join us this year and really make EVs noticed!!!

    Via EV Planner the distance is about 180 rated miles (290 rated km; 265 actual km). There are a couple of Level 2 EVSE's in Campbell River and plenty up and down the Island. I have spoken with Painter's Lodge and while they don't have a Destination Charging setup at this point, they were cooperative in providing a 15A plug last year.

    If you have any burning questions PM me. It would be great to have the Tesla brand outnumber any other brand in the rally!! At time of posting there were 9 (nine) spots left for the rally.

    Trying to convince my wife, but she's hung up on the ferry lines on a long weekend... haven't given up yet though.

    Ferry reservations $15 each way make for great peace of mind! Or $18.50 if you wait until Monday morning to decide which ferry for the ride back.
