    Hi Folks,

    Many of you may have already received an email about this event. I think it is a great chance to meet owners from different areas. Please see below if you haven't received an email. Thought will start a thread where we can plan something in such short time and have a tentative RSVP list. Hope this thread helps to share ideas and experiences at the event. Please put down your name if you plan to attend the event.

    Join us for the Michigan and Indiana Supercharger Openings!

    Timing for either location tomorrow doesn't work well for me so I cannot attend. However, it sounds like a good time. For anyone who goes, please stay warm!

    15 people, 5 cars, short segment on the TV news, and a nice article with picture of a Tesla plugged in the South Bend Tribune with a few quotes from me and more from the Tesla representative.
    RLS and I had a nice time on the very cold and snowy day. I had washed the car in my garage the night before and RLS had run his through a car wash for the first and maybe last time. No visible damage.

    The weather was against us at the St. Joseph SC. I was the only owner to show up between 10:00 to 11:00. Not sure if anyone showed up afterward, but given the road conditions, the Tesla team had to leave for South Bend. I am glad you had a better turnout in Mishawaka. In addition to my car we had 2 cars from Tesla, including a P85+. I was somewhat impressed that he made it with the 21" performance tires. I did not take any pictures, but we did have a reporter and photographer from the local paper: http://www.heraldpalladium.com/news/local/hot-technology-on-a-cold-day/article_e6523873-8f3e-584f-8a89-1beac8d9a408.html. Tesla also hired a local photographer to cover the event so perhaps I can get some pictures to post later.

    I found out that someone I know owns a business across from the St Joe Supercharger!
