We went to Dundee for lunch and wine tasting.    

Thanks to Red Hills Market, Zerba Cellars, and other wineries for the gathering place.  

And to Sherry for organizing the event, including the amazing sunshine for January.

Nov 9, 2013 - WAAAM in Hood River

We gathered at the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum in Hood River Oregon for a celebration of a century of EVs.

We arranged 23 Model S into a red-filled heart shape on the museum's grounds, and wowed museum goers. 
None of them had ever seen so many EVs all at once.

Supercharger in Woodburn

On August 29, we welcomed Tesla's first Supercharger in Oregon, in Woodburn. 
We dodged the rain just long enough to cut a ribbon and hear inspiring words from Troy Jones, Phil Barnhart, and the property owner.

Here are the pictures from the event. 

Aug 24, 2013 - Wine tasting at St. Josef's Winery, Canby

We had a nice wine tasting event at St Josef's Winery, in Canby, OR.  
Only a few Model S owners were there, due to my short notice. We still managed to make the winery owner's day, showing up with our Teslas.

Here are a few pictures from the event.

Aug 10, 2013 - Breakfast at Woodburn

We had a small, impromptu breakfast at Elmer's in Woodburn, and got to meet Eric Olson, the owner, and landlord for Tesla's first Supercharger in Oregon. 
Here are some pictures from the tour of the construction site.

July 20, 2013 - PDX Tesla Road Rally

We had our first PDX Tesla Road Rally!  it was short, but we did get some good photos both on the way there and at the Portland Women's Forum scenic overlook, with a view of the Vista House in the background.  Who am I kidding... we were staring at Model S all the time!

13 Model S owners all in one place!  Click here for other photos of the day.

June 2013

We took over the parking lot at Thirsty Lion, Washington Square.  17 Model S and a Roadster made all the other cars in the lot look bad, according to the restaurant's manager. He was happy to have us there.  Check out the photos from the event
