    Since December 2013, the idea of lighting the chrome strip on back of the Tesla Model S (the appliqué), original posted by artsci, has evolved into something spectacular! Here is the thread where it all started.

    In appreciation for artisci and Danal's work (and all the contributors), lets have a special dinner night at TMC. (artisci has confirmed, waiting on to confirm if Danal will attend). If not, would suggest we do something else special in addition to the dinner.

    Please post your interest to join them here. If interested, please provide any special dietary requirements, which night July 10, 11 or 12 are workable, and any suggestions on places to dine here or via PM.

    Paul, Very grateful for your doing this. I'll be arriving from the east coast on the 10th then driving to southern CA on the morning of the 13th, so all three nights work for me. I'd prefer Friday or Saturday if that doesn't interfere with TMC Connect events. My brother David will be my co-driver for the trip from the East so I hope he can join us. He's a lifelong BMW driver but loves the Model S.

    I'm in...and happy to repay the amazing efforts of our resident geeks/mods. Note that Bonnie has not firmed up her Picnic date (either Thursday or Sunday), so you can poll the crowds, but she/we might not know yet. Right now, for me, any of those nights work.

    Do we know the venue yet? The hotel location might dictate where to dine.

    Depending when it is, i would like to join in with this dinner/event.

    Talking to Doug last weekend at the Reach the Beach event, it sounds like TMC Connect will include events both Friday and Saturday nights (I believe Doug will soon be giving full details of the whole event. He still was working on some details.)

    Depending on when Artsci (and others are planning to arrive), maybe a Friday lunch might be best, or Sunday breakfast/brunch.

    I certainly don't want to miss Bonnie's picnic, provided I'm invited:)

    I'll be glad to chip in and be there as well.

    While I am not a creator in this project, I have been an early supporter and helped Rick acquire several of the appliqués. I'll enjoy showing off my mods!

    Will certainly wait for the Party at Picnic Creek date, guests arrivals, TMC event details, & dining options before firming plans.

    Count me in too.
    I may be hitching a ride out west and flying back, or flying RT, but would love to support our local celeb innovator :)

    Thank you all! Very nice of you. However, I will not be attending TMC.

    Anyone in the DFW area who wants to meet... and/or anyone who is attending "Air Venture 2015 (AKA Oshkosh)", please PM and we will arrange something.


    You guys have fun!

    I hope you're bringing the dogs along -- they'll be a hit!

    Bonnie's picnic is Sunday afternoon so let's work around that.

    Hitch a ride? You're welcome to ride with me and my brother. We can share the driving:) Leaving Baltimore on July 4 and meeting up with the rest of the group at the Hagerstown Supercharger.

    Drive across the country without my dogs? Heaven forbid!

    I'd love to come for a picnic. I'll bring Toast & Tea.

    Fortunately the event hotel (Hyatt Regency Santa Clara) is pet friendly although the web site says dogs must be under 50 pounds. We'll see... I'm bringing my dog along for the ride from the East coast, as will my co-driver brother. Mine a Yellow Lab, his a Cockapoo.

    (80 lb Lab + 12 lb Cockapoo)/2 dogs = 46 lb/dog Works for me!

    Perfect math. Wish I had a light weight dog to offset my dogs:wink:

    My lab is about 60 lbs and the Cockapoo 10. That adds up to 50 lbs doesn't it?:)

    So Friday night seems to be the best time. Perhaps a late dinner after the reception. Will post more details. Anyone have any suggestions on a place that's open for late dinner close or at the venue?

    Sometime Friday night at the end of the reception. Looking for suggestions on a place in/near the conference.

    Can my Lab attend the dinner?:)

    Really appreciate your doing this but I'm not sure I deserve it.
