    Some of you wonder how to join the NE Local Club subforum of PriusChat, here's a lil' info:

    The NE local group should have been setup before to allow anyone to join automatically without needing my intervention. You may want to read the post in the Local Clubs section showing how to join a specific group.

    You should be able to join it by going here:

    http://priuschat.com/forums/groupcp.php?g=3339

    And clicking the Join Group button. This should automatically give you access to the NE Forum.

    Hope that helps.

    It's been a busy couple of days but I finally made it back online....

    Wow, that was fun and WAY beyond my expectations! So great to have the Insight folks join us, too! From folks that have attended hybrid gatherings previously, many said that this was a good one!

    I counted 35 folks and 25 cars: 4 of them were Insights and then there was the bio-diesel pickup! Yes, it was good to see the NorthEast Sustainable Energy Association there and to learn of the annual Tour de Sol festival/rally. It was cool that folks had magazines, flyers, decals and 'parking tickets' to hand out! They all were great!

    Great to meet you all! Just sorry that I didn't have more time to spend talking to everyone.

    Thanks Edward for finding the spot for us to meet! And thanks to Michele for all the great info! So sorry that Theo got a nasty burn... Hope he's doing a bit better. It's the itching that's the worst, I think...

    Oh yeah, thanks goes out to Gilles for coming and speaking to us and donating prizes!!!

    I have an email in to him to find out just what the prizes are and how many. From that , we'll do a lottery to pick the winners!

    Cheers,
    -bob

    Actually, it was Michelle who suggested Jordan's Furniture among other good places. I just contacted the Jordan's manager & head office to make it a reality. So the credits go to Michelle.

    Information about the prizes:

    TWO $75 gift certificates for services or parts, &
    FOUR synthetic lub oil changes

    Right now, I have the name list since that Bob should really get packing soon, I will just print the list out, cut up the names and pick 'em out of a hat to decide who gets the gifts. If you folks have a better & fairer suggestion, please let me know. I won't get to this until early next week though.

    Thanks.

    P.S. If you don't fancy these prizes, please PM me, I will exclude you. I will also exclude me & BobC from this raffle for the sake of fairness. I will announce the winners here, email the winner info to Gilles, and have him mail you the vouchers/coupons. Gilles is the one who gives out the prizes.

    Guys & Gals, regarding those prizes Gilles Labelle had promised to give out to the few N.E. Prius Gathering winners as selected by me, I still haven't received any reply from Gilles. And this is after I have sent him 2-3 emails + spoke to him in person at the AltWheels Festival a few weekends back.

    You know, I didn't want to publicize Gilles' email here but now that I think of it, he sells Prius for Westboro Toyota dealership any way, so how secretive can his email be, right?

    So here you go:

    [email protected]

    Winners once again are:

    $75 Gift Cert. for services or parts = Bill R. of Newton
    $75 Gift Cert. for services or parts = John E. of Lexington

    Synthetic lub oil change = Eric E. of Shrewsbury
    Synthetic lub oil change = John A. of Nashua
    Synthetic lub oil change = Janice K. of Warwick
    Synthetic lub oil change = Jim D. of ??

    Please post here or PM me to let me know how things turn out between Gilles & you.

    Edward

    It seems to be really tough getting people together around here. I could really use a meet-up this time of year though. Don't know about anyone else.

    We did meet the beginning of April. I would like to get something together for the weekend of the May 10th-11th, maybe closer to central MA so as to get more people from western MA VT and CT to attend. Only problem is it's Mother's day that Sunday. Maybe the following weekend. Can anyone suggest an appropriate place? I'm not too familiar with that area.

    Either date works for me. It's just a short hop for me to get to Framingham.

    Hey, chinalfr2,

    Just what date are you talking about in your just-entered June 26, 2008 post? The most recent dates mentioned on this page were May 10th & 11th (& they have gone by). If you got linked to this thread from another thread (like I did) & didn't notice that the July & August dates that were being mentioned on the 1st page were posted way back in 2005, then you probably got real excited for a while (like I did, especially with the thought of eating at Tennessee BBQ). I realized something didn't jive when I knew that August 6th of this year falls on a Wed & not a weekend like they were talk'g about. I was away on vacation August 6th of 2005, so I couldn't attend that year & was really disappointed at missing out.

    Ken (in Bolton,Ct)
