First San Francisco Bay Area Volt Gathering!

Hey All,

I believe there are enough Volt's on the road in SF where we could setup a gathering of current Volt Owners! This would be a great way to share experiences and meet the others who are part of the electric revolution!

I'm not sure how many people are following this right now, so instead of throwing out a date, I want to get a hand raising to see who would be interested.

Please respond with the following if you are interested in such an Event.

1.) Your Name
2.) Where you are in SF Bay (South Bay, Peninsula, North Bay, East Bay)
3.) At Least 1 Suggested Venue

Depending on interest, we're looking to set something up perhaps mid / late February or early March. (We could do sooner if there is more immediate interest though!)

Send to all your fellow Volt owners and invite them to join this thread!

Sounds like fun, count me in!

The Dutch Goose (dive bar/burger joint) in Menlo Park

Golden Gate Park sounds good too as long as there is ample parking somewhere there.

Can't make Feb 5 but other weekends are all open.

My Volt is suppose to come in this week or next so I'd prefer later in the month, say after the long weekend?

Looks like we'll wait a month or two and see if more people are ready to meet, 3 is fun, but looking for a few more :)

I am interested but would need to wait until March 2011. Just picked up my Volt but I will be out of the area for all of February.

Dutch Goose sounds good - great burgers! limited parking
Golden Gate Park would be good for photos and has lots of room for crowds
The Presidio (view of the bridge behind photos of the cars for photos)

I think we need to ask what we are hoping to gain from the gathering. Are we just getting together to share ideas and enthusiasm or are we looking at this as an opportunity to talk to people about the Volt and show them what it is rather than what they may have heard on a partisan news outlet? How big can we make this? We should contact some local news to get them in on it and magnify the effect. Just my thoughts.

Hey Jason,

Great thoughts - my thought for scope is to start out simple, just make it a community gathering to meet the other faces of Volt. If we think there's something more, perhaps we can make it something bigger in a subsequent meeting!

I think we'll table until later to see if we can get more people to show, ideally looking for about a dozen or so to make it worthwhile.

Keep this thread alive!

Hi all!

Tommy Henneman
South Bay
I work for a dealer group in San Jose and we could host it at our Chevrolet dealership with a catered lunch or BBQ provided by the dealership.

I can also speak to some our Volt buyers and see if they are interested in attending so we can have a solid turnout.

Hey Tommy,

Welcome to the boards and thanks for offering! We may take you up on that once we get a critical mass of Volt Owners! I think that's a great idea and way to do a meet and greet with current owners and prospective owners.
