Make plans to bring your Tesla to one of the NDEW events around Texas. It's a great way to meet other Tesla and other EV owners. The Texas events are perhaps surprisingly popular. The North Texas event is currently the largest in the country in terms of electric miles driven, total cars and total Teslas.

We hope to see you there!

Grapevine, TX -- Saturday, September 8

Austin, TX -- Saturday, September 15

Houston, TX -- Saturday, September 15

San Antonio, TX -- Saturday, September 15

Corpus Christi, TX -- Sunday, September 9

Showing off the science on the roof of Model 3, me likes that :)

For the record, I am not complaining about the rain. We never seem to get enough of it here anyway!

Ah, that roofline is an X! The 3 isn't the only one to get that love. Agree on the rain.

I'm taking my 3 to the Corpus Christi and local Houston events. Good excuse to visit my sister, she lives out in the country west of Corpus near Orange Grove, and pick up some awesome jerky from Prasek's :D

I see there is going to be a Jag in Houston. I wonder if that's a dealership or Jaguar doing PR, or an "out in the wild" owner stopping by? Either way I'm interested to get some eyes on it.

P.S. Yes, I'm signed up under Team Bolt. Blame Tesla for scheduling my delivery too late. ;)

Wow, it looks like we are going to be busy in Austin next week :)
There are 42 Tesla's registered out of 90 EVs - impressive

I've worked up a Model 3 Info sheet to hand out while I'm at the Corpus Christi and Houston events.

Had a great time at the Corpus Christi event, much better turn out than I expected. There ended up being 5 Teslas at one point, 4 Model 3s and a Model S.

Only bummer was it rained quite a bit during the second hour of the event, though there was a plus side as afterward the wet roofs on the 3s attracted a lot of attention. Not everybody took a handout, ended up giving away about 30 of them (most during the 2 hours it wasn't raining).

Model 3 owner next to me took a smoke break at one point and was talking up the 3 to my sister & brother-in-law. He mentioned "the guy next to me even came down from Houston!", to which my sister replied "I know, he's my brother". I don't know if she told him this, or was just thinking it, but she relayed to me "You don't need to sell me on a Tesla, I've driven his and want one of my own".

My brother-in-law was disappointed that there weren't any electric motorcycles to see, he'd misheard me when I mentioned one was signed up for the Houston event.

And, of course, I made the obligatory stop at Prasek's :D

So then there were a good number of people without an EV that showed up to look around? More than the 34 registered people would suggest?
