    I will be going to the one in Memphis, TN on the 25th as a part of the US Green Building Council's "Green Week." So far there are 6 Leafs, 2 Teslas, 1 Volt, 1 Pip, and 1 Other signed up. That looks good for such a SUV mecca.

    It's at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City here. I'm going to see if I can make it. Looks like 17 plug-ins, so far.

    Saturday the 28th at the MN state Capitol. Would love to see more, trying to give some CA sites a run for their money!

    Not a single PiP is registered for Syracuse, NY. What the heck is going on, there are so many of them in this area!

    I don't think there is enough advertising for the event. I randomly stumbled across it and reading EV news is all I do each night well after Jeopardy. :p

    So far, it looks like it'll be a good turn-out for the North New Jersey event.

    Just went to the Marin County one. I test drove a Leaf and Smart car. The Leaf has amazing pick up.

    Lots of EV cars to look at and chat with owners about. There were 2 Teslas, an EV RAV 4, Volt, tons of Prii and Leafs and even a Fisker Karma.

    Fun stuff.
