Red Rocks Amphitheater Chargepoint Chargers

So went to to Red Rocks and thought I would try and use the Chargepoint chargers while im in the concert. If you are a concert goer at Red Rocks there are 4 J1772 free chargers at the Trading Post. But the problem was is they are using the parking spots for crew and employees, and the chargers are covered with signs that they are out of order so no parking spots were available. I asked the security that the cargepoint webs says they are working , so they said they would try and accommodate me and get a car towed is necessary to get me a spot to plug in.

After a bit they were able to move a car and tried it out and was able to charge up.

The next day I contacted 311 to report the inaccessible chargers and was called back by the director of Red Rocks and after a brief conversation he said that they would accommodate 2 spaces on a regular basis for electric vehicles until they can find a better way to regulate the parking.

So tried again another concert night 7/17 and once again all the spaces were taken.. this time the security was more accommodating and contacted the tow truck to move a vehicle (after about 50 min). Since I was going to 2 more days security was going to hold a spot for the other two nights and had no other problems going right in.

So if you are going to a concert try and contact the trading post or main customer service to see if they can hold a spot for you to avoid any delays.
The roads are blocked to get up there during concert but just tell the security you are going up to the electric vehicle chargers at the trading post and they will let you right in.

I agree completely with your sentiment, but that's like saying we shouldn't criminalize illegal parking in handicapped spaces if there are no handicapped cars needing the spot.

Except the handicapped actually need the closer spot, right? Getting someone towed because you want a closer parking space doesn't represent the Tesla brand very well, IMO.
