Tesla Get Together at Lauren Ashton on Saturday October 24th 2015

It has been a while since we had a large gathering of Tesla owners and enthusiasts. I remember one of the first with Model S when I organized a lunch at Triple X in Issaquah on October 21st 2012. We had only a few Model S Signatures then

Then, we organized a get together with owner presentations where we had around 40 Model S on April 7th 2013 at Metropolitan Detail. BrianM has a photo montage of all the cars. Maybe he can find it. At that time, it was the largest gathering of Model S cars in the world; we even beat a larger gathering at the Bay area.



Speed forward 3 years...my friends, Kit and Riinu, owners of Lauren Ashton, were kind enough to offer their tasting room without fees for our next Tesla get together on Saturday October 24th 2015. It is from 1 pm to 6 pm. We have limited capacity at 75 so we decided to use Brown Paper tickets to help prevent violating fire codes :) We are charging $15 for the wine tasting and of course, I have no financial stake in this. Moreover, I just couldn't ask them to provide the tasting room AND free wine :)

Sign up at Brown Paper Tickets for "Tasting & Tunes for TESLA Enthusiasts"

I will work with Tesla, Lauren Ashton and others to try to put together some surprises and info to share during the event. Probably wine deals, Tesla freebies, latest news and maybe a Model X to see?? No promises though.

if you have questions, post to this thread or personal message me via this forum.

I hope to see you there.

Thanks for organizing, Francis. I signed up.

The thread for the original Model S Sig event at XXX in Oct 2012 is HERE.

The thread for the Spring 2013 event at Metropolitan Detail in Bellevue is HERE. Brianman's montage of all the cars is HERE.

I wasn't familiar with Lauren Ashton; they are a winery in Woodinville. Web site is HERE.

Darn. I currently fly out to Poland on this Saturday. I'm going to see if I can move my flights tomorrow - would be great to put faces to handles, plus chotskis from Tesla trumps all! :)

A reminder that this event is this Saturday. Sign up has been a lower than I expected but hopefully I will see many of you at the event.

Looking forward to seeing you, and other local enthusiasts, there tomorrow! Come one, come all :smile:
