S'more fixings will be provided. What we need are sticks...
We're six days away! I'm excited!
As of a few moments ago, we have 57 people and 32 cars registered, representing 9 states, plus D.C. and Canada.
If you have not yet registered and have a better then 80% chance of being able to join us, please help us by registering as soon as possible. The vineyard in particular needs our headcount for food preparation.

Later this week we will be sending out final details, including step by step instructions for the drive-in on how to configure your Tesla to stay powered on with the headlights off.
I keep running into other Tesla owners who are not aware of the event. We just think everyone is on the forums . Please feel free to an extend an invite to anyone you meet at the SCs or SuCs.
I've got 3 dozen 8" bamboo kabob skewers. Might be a tad short for roasting marshmallows - and maybe too combustible
I'll bring 'em, if only for comic relief.
Great.. I still can't seem to figure out on my refresh S how to configure so that DRL's (aka signature lights) will stay off. I know range mode shuts them off until you place in park then they come back on no mater what I do.
@andrewket, when I registered, I wasn't completely sure of the headcount in my car. I can confirm now that my vehicle will have four people. FYI that my sister is flying in from Minnesota Friday night so that might add one more state to your list.
Does anyone know if the DuCard Vineyard is dog friendly...can we bring our little pup?
I will check.
Thanks for the update! If we are sneaky, we can add Minnesota to our list
I checked with the vineyard. Dogs are fine.
Car in neutral
Parking brake on
Except for our Canadians - they need to bring towels or something else to cover them up!
Does not work on a refresh, or at least mine.
Refresh Model S units do not have a DRL "button". See pix..
Guess I'll be bringing some black towels or something.
Without doing the research, does anyone know off the top of their heads a hotel south of the drive-in with a charging station? It will be too far for us to return home after the movies so thinking about a hotel on the way towards Lynchburg.....any suggestions?
There is a Ramada in Strasburg with a J1772 station.
Hey everyone. A few updates-
1. The second film on screen 2 will be The Light Between Oceans (PG13) at approximately 9pm.
2. Access to the theater for the public is now opening at 5:30p, so we've moved up the s'mores to 5pm to give us 30 minutes.
3. Trolls on screen 1 is starting at 6:30pm - this is the second option for those that are bringing young children. The primary movie is still Doctor Strange at 7pm on screen 2.
I'll test this tonight on our X, but I believe if you change the steps to be:
1. Car in neutral
2. Parking brake on
3. Turn range mode on
4. Turn headlights off
It should work.
Ok, I registered for the event, but not 100% sure I can make it down (right now it's about 80%).
I assume there's an option to leave the drive-in after the first film? I've already seen The Light Between Oceans and may want to just go back to the hotel a little early.
Of course. I hope you can make it!
I made my hotel reservations! I'm staying overnight Friday near the Woodbridge, VA SC, and then driving to the winery in the morning. Then staying at the Strasburg hotel for Saturday.
I'm just waiting on word from a friend to see if I can do it.
@HankLloydRight, we'll be coming to the Woodbridge SC Saturday morning to top up and have some breakfast. Wanna meet up and travel together to DuCard? I haven't heard whether anyone else will be starting from Woodbridge.
Sure. I figured I'd charge to 90% the night before. Then return around 8:30AM for 30 minutes or so to top up as much as possible. I was thinking of leaving Woodbridge at about 9am, to make sure to get to the winery by 11am.
Great. I've got a ton of driving to do on Friday so I'm not quite sure what my SOC will be starting Saturday morning. We'll probably aim to be at the Woodbridge SC by 7:30 a.m. to ensure we can get a full charge and have time for breakfast at silver diner and be ready for departure at 9
