    I am organizing the Spring 2013 get together. The current plan is to meet at Metropolitan Detail in Bellevue. We hope to also organize some talks so we can all share and learn from each other.

    Please provide your feedback via the survey so we can plan the event you all will love. There are only 10 questions so please complete this as soon as you can.

    I responded to your survey Francis and will plan to be there if it falls on a day I can make it. It would be great to meet other Tesla owners!

    It might be interesting to spice up the event. An example...

    If there's a decent attendance by "pending owners" and "potential reservations", we could have a competition for most interesting question asked of current owners.

    I filled out the survey (nice job of creating it, Francis. Great questions). Would make for some great conversation and should be very educating. I imagine there is a steady flow of cars being shipped up from Fremont as of lately. I'm astonished at how many I've seen on the road the last couple of weeks. So there should be plenty of people in the area soon owning one as well.

    speaking of which....four more days and I will be a Model S owner as well...woo-hoo! On my way home from work on Friday I let one pass me as I noticed it in the rear view mirror :rolleyes: (license plate: "TSLA EV"...first blue one I've seen on the road (the license plate LEDs lights look great in the dark, btw!))

    Thanks for organizing this.

    I am not likely to have my Tesla at the Spring get together, I am in the multi-coat red queue, but am looking forward to meeting people and learning more about the Tesla Model S.

    Is this still happening? The survey seems to be closed. I got my Model S last week and would love to meet other owners.

    Damn it, I already had them wrap my car. A discount would've been nice. They do good work, but it ain't cheap.

    The blame lies completely with you, Brianman. If only your Sig hadn't looked so damned good!

    Even more Goodies!

    Torklift Central, makers of the EcoHitch in Kent, is offering a nice discount on their hitches at the event. They will be at the event to answer questions too.

    They are offering $25 off the hitch up to 15 people and after 15 people, we get $50 off.

    You can see more information at http://torkliftcentral.com/ecohitch_tesla_model_s.php. There is a cool video of the drill-less installation of their hitch on a Model S on that page.

    See you Sunday!

    Francis
