[ausev] Tesla Capitol Demo Day

I wish I had been, but I am glad that you want some hobbiest EVs there as
well. I hope my note didn't sound too confrontational, I was just curious
what the focus of the event was in your mind. While you are leaving it open
to hobbiest EVs, sometimes home built EVs are not considered when EV
discussions are happening at such levels. All too often I see them left out
of EV incentive programs, standards and best practices discussions, and
infrastructure planning. Odd that some of the most motivated EV owners are
often left out of the equation, but there you go.
Just let everybody know what they need to do to participate and let me know
if yuo need any material related to AustinEV from me. Thanks so much for
including the group in your plans!
