    This Saturday at Mote Marine Lab, we're holding our 5th annual drive electric expo day.

    Rumor has it that locals will see our intrepid Larry Chanin on SNNTV tonight at 5.00pm and 6.00pm news slots, Chris Sharek and I had bit parts on 10News, Fox13 and ABC7 in the Tampa Bay area.

    Oh and Mote Aquarium has special $6 admission tickets for FL residents if you'd like to make a day of it.

    Great article by Cynthia Shahan of Clean Technica describing the event. Lots of our club members participated.

    I like how hilarious I think it is to get Henrik to completely clean my car at every event! I look like a deranged person in that pic!

    BTW, we had 2,300 people went through our little event; and a record attendance at Mote Marine that day.

    Thanks to everyone who showed their cars, also especially to Chris Sharek and Larry Chanin for leading things this year.
