    That's cool that you have charging stations available.

    One caveat, Jaff, is that they are very probably 30A circuit / 24A continuous. If so a full charge would be 10 hours. You might want to check...

    Since you're near Pearson maybe Tesla could help you out with some HPC time...

    Yes they are 30 Amp Level 2... Should be OK unless you are arriving with a very low charge.

    Hope you can come.

    Thanks Doug...I'm not exactly sure where the venue is, but Toronto should be within my range...even with (just) a 30 amp level II top off.

    Still need to clear the scheduled time with the wife...

    To clarify... The location of the Show & Shine is at the Toronto Pearson Aiport - South end, at the GTAA Administration building parking lot... I will send you all the details if you are coming.

    Thanks for your consideration!

    Just a reminder... Less than two weeks to go until the GTAA Comunity Show & Shine on Thursday Aug. 23, hope to have at least one TESLA Roadster there. (Show at Toronto Pearson International Airport, Administration Building, between 11:30 am to 1:30 pm). We have Level 2 30 amp charging available.

    Please respond if you can come or want more info.

    Thanks!

    I'm afraid that I won't be able to make it CurrieG...my schedule won't permit it as I already have three staff off on vacation that week....Sorry!

    We had a great show this year, sorry no Roadster could come... Thanks to those who considered. Next year I will have my Tesla Model S, Signature Performance at the show! Maybe a Roadster will also make it too. Will post again next year.

    Thanks!
