EVCCON 2015 Day -1

After a year of anticipation of EVCCON 2015, and locking in that week in the schedule of my 7 month around-the-world trip, Jack posted 13 days before the event that it was cancelled due to lack of an insurance policy.  You can read Jack's message to the attendees here.

Well very soon it became apparent that most of us were still going to come anyway, so Jack decided he would host everything at the EVTV workshop rather than having sessions at the AC Brace arena and the drag strip and autocross at the airport.  Sessions will now be held in the EVTV video studio and we'll be able to freely wander the workshop and get our hands dirty working on cars.  Saturday night we'll head over to the nearby 1/4 mile dragstrip and go racing, which we previously did on the last Sunday morning of the show.

Leaving California, I arrived at the hotel late Sunday night and went over to the EVTV workshop on Monday morning.  Three of us had arrived a day early and spent our time cleaning up the seating and drinks cooler area.  We made a run to Sam's Club and stocked up on soda, beer and paper products.


At the end of the day, Jack suggested we go to a local Japanese restaurant that serves mostly Chinese food and is run by Koreans.  It turned out to be a disaster, don't think any of us will be going there again!
